Okay so this may be a silly question, but before the updates the older the horse was the worse it performed , I just want to check and confirm that this is still a factor? Do most horses hit their Prime around 15yrs before performance starts to dwindle because of age? or has this been tweaked as well ?

THanks !

I'd say it's changed and honestly, it all seems to be random. I've had horses hit 83" at 18 and 60" at 8. So there's not a specific age when horses peak anymore, I don't think.

I've noticed as old as 20 year olds are jumping fairly good for me.

Horses used to jump well until about 22-24 in my experience and it seems somewhat similar now.

I had a few 20 year olds improve with the old system and from what I have seen so far it seems to be similar with this new system, I'm not sure when horses hit their peak at the moment though.
