How Long Do Horses Live?

A tamed horse lives for 25 to 30 years on average. The usual lifespan of

wild horses, including Mustangs, is closer to 15 years. Because

veterinarians can attend to their medical issues and dietary requirements,

 domesticated horses often live longer.  A wild horse has a tougher

difficulty keeping up with the herd when they start to slow down because of

 arthritis or when they can no longer feed well because of dental problems.
