Hello I have a question I would like to ask...
Could a regular Quarter horse that is of fairly good conformation and fitness travel 8 miles at a fast trot in one hour? As in 8miles per hour? Would that be too much to travel that distance, rest for an hour or two, and travel at the same gait back/or another 8-9miles?
Obviously 8 miles is hardly anything to travel for a horse, but can it travel that, at a fast trot slow canter to get the 8-9 miles per hour in?
