ridecamp@endurance.net: distance at a full gallop

distance at a full gallop

Tue, 18 Mar 1997 17:18:12 -0600

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).

I am a horse person, but I practice another discipline and endurance
training seemed the closest (though I realize its not the same).

Unfortunatly, this is not printed up in the Encyclopedia of the Horse<g>.
Can any of you help me?
