    You should research the pony express riders of the the early USA. That would be an extreme ride on fit horses. I know they switched horses regularly but that's about it.

    Hmm, so I will regard it like 100 - 150 km?

    I'd say that's about right. 160 km would be top end.

    My Trainer had my horse up to 40 miles after a few weeks of Conditioning, It depends on the horses level of fitness, the weather & terrain, and lots of other conditions .

    I would never take my horse for a long endurance race or 40 mile trail ride without the proper conditioning first.
