how fast can a horse walk

Or... how long to get there?

If I want to travel 10 km of country roads at a walk, what kind of time line should I expect? I'm thinking 2 hours plus.

An average horse walks at about 4 m/p/h

If my calculations are correct, 10km = 6.2 miles. Spyder is correct at 4 mph so ~ 1 1/2 hours should be about right.

Thanks. Now if it would stop raining, maybe I'd ride to town!

One of the greatest gadgets I have for riding is a portable Garmin GPS. It calculates your distance and speeds not to mention rest stops, routes, etc.
Anyone doing trail riding should consider checking it out. It is simply a great tool.
I down load my trip information onto my pc for my conditioning schedule.

I would love to help but it really depends on the horse. My horse Dobe walks so fast that other horses have to jog to keep up. But, my dad's horse Pokey walks so slow, he can't keep up with anyone. I walk faster than he does. LOL.
