conditioning for different distances

Am I the only one that is amazed that the conditioning required for a 50 and
that required for a 100 or a multi-day are virtually the same?

I mean, it would make perfect sense to me that you have to do XYZ for a 50
and then maybe 2xXYZ for a 100 and so on....But apparently if your horse can
go 50 he can likely go 100 or do a 2 or 3 day ride even....which just
doesn't make any sense to me :-))

Is that a function of distance conditioning in general or a function of a
horse's system I wonder?
