Trivia Tuesday: How many horse years equal one human year?
We've likely all heard a different version of this one, and it's easy to confuse with the comparisons to dogs and cats. Here are two of the most accurate horse/human age calculators:
a. For a rough conversion of a horse's age to human years, multiply the horse's age by 2.2. Example: "Dobbin" is 15 years old. 15 x 2.2 = 33 years old (in people terms).
b. Another age calculation sometimes used is counting the horse's first year equal to 10 human years, and every year after that as 2 human years. Example: 15-year-old "Dobbin" = (1 x 10) + (14 x 2) = 10 + 28 = 38 (in people terms).
