<< I have a question...I am asking for a friend of mine who is a fantasy
writer. The subject is a well-bred, well-conditioned riding horse; how
*long* can such a horse travel at a gallop before it would have to rest (or
risk lameness). >>
There's always a risk of lameness, but the longest consistent gallops I've
heard of were approx 17 continuous miles in an endurance Arab. I'm sure there
are horses that have done more--let's hear about them.
