    I'm not sure I understand the question... a stationary horse, to me, means that he is not moving whatsoever, so no turning whatsoever. If you're instead meaning how long does it take a horse to do a turn on the forehand or haunches (around one stationary point, but the other end moves) then the answer is "as fast as the individual horse can."
    For example:
    This quarter horse can do multiple 360 degree turns fairly quickly:
    This horse is practicing turn on the haunches (not completely correctly) but you can see that a 180 degree turn takes much longer:

    Thank you JustDressageIt, the info was very helpful.

    Video number 2 was what I was talking about (:8 mark)

    Once again Kevin, you can't tell me what you think of me, simply because you don't know me. :)

    My question is not stupid at all. Its not my fault that your trying to turn a VERY basic question into something difficult, but I will re-word the question anyway "How long would it take AN AVERAGE SIZE horse to do a 180 degree turn?"

    If you just simply can't answer the question, then there should be no need to speak.

    Or maybe your just following the common trend of picking on the outsider?

    I'm sorry, but you ask a question, Kevin gives you a perfectly reasonable answer...and you insult him and call his reply stupid? I don't know if I'm missing something here, but generally when someone gives you honest help you don't turn around and insult them, even if you don't think their answer is right.

    Since the bird analogy didn't relate to you, here's a horse one: Asking how fast a horse can turn is like asking how fast a racehorse can run. Somewhere around 40 mph, but depending on the day, the horse, and the conditions it may be more or less. So depending on the horse and what it's trained to do (like reining or whatever) and the conditions (if it's spooking and twirling or something) and all that sort of stuff, different horses will turn at different speeds.

    How long does it take for a STATIONARY horse to turn 180 degrees?

    I recently have been interested in horses and a friend and I were arguing non-stop about this subject.

    Sorry if this is the wrong place to post.

    Thanks in advance
    The answer is forever.

    Since stationary means NOT MOVING then there cannot be a turn of any kind.
