Well, it all depends on the course and how it is ridden, the experience 
level of the rider and horse.  I don't know if there is an answer. 
Obviously, going 250 miles is 2.5x longer.  For a 100 miler the horse only 
has to be sound for one day, 24 hours.  For a multiday, they have to stay 
sound day after day after day after day.  Makes for a different challenge, 
each one unique......hard to compare.  I don't know of any courses off hand 
that are 100 milers in addition to being a couple of days of a multiday, so 
anything you compare is apples and oranges.  I think some of the smartest 
riders I know are multiday riders (and most of them ride 100's as well, so 
maybe it's really the other way around<G>).  I think you learn a lot more 
and your horse does to, doing multidays.
