I'd just like to share that I own a 22yr old Morgan mare who is 14.1. She is in good health and has been free jumped a lot in order to keep up her back strength. She has jumped 3 feet 8 inches before, and I currently compete 2 foot on her (only because I haven't been jumping long, I hope to graduate to higher things soon.) if your horse is healthy, you should be fine competing the AA circuit on a 14 year old. DONT BE AFRAID to scratch if your horse starts to feel tired or is showing signs of wanting to quit, or signs of pain.
