RE: [RC] 10 minute mile - heidi

A 10 minute mile is six miles an hour. Thats a pretty good clip at a 
walk. I suspect most horses average about 2 to 4 mph at the walk and 
most humans are closer to 2 than to 4. At six mph I would expect most 
trotting horses would jog or trot.

Truman, you are correct about averages on the trail.  I've been privileged to 
ride several that average 5 to 5.5 mph at the walk routinely for long 
stretches, and you'd better believe that they walk at 6+ when headed back to 
camp!  I don't try to walk with them--I can't keep up.
