Estimation of horse age based on the teeth exam is a work seldom applied and limited by the Medical Veterinaries, due perhaps to ignorance of the established parameters in the equine dental chronology. However, it is the best-suited form to know or to verify the horses age, although they have or not established records. In the present work a revision of relevant aspects in the denture of the specimens in order to know and to establish the horses age is made. A detailed description of the tooth structure is realized, as well as of the dental formula and its evolution in time.
