hmmm. Well I can't really tell you in miles exactly how far one can go, as I don't generally drive on the road or anything- but I can tell you this.
We have an approximately (I havent measured him myself, I'm guessing) 41-42" tall Shetland pony gelding who is a seasoned, well conditioned driving and riding pony, and we use him twice a week in October for our annual fundraiser to pull the cart, and he can easily carry two people at a slow trot with small breaks between each 'rider' for the 5-6 hours that we're open.
Our seasoned mini who is about 34", however, has less of a tolerance and will only work for about 2-3 hours without starting to get upset. Both are in the same condition physically, but have different 'work ethics' if you will ;)
Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.
