Horse Podcast Ep 118: How Far Can a Horse Travel in One Day

Equestrian Adventuresses Travel and Horse Podcast Ep 118 - How far can a horse travel in one day

In today’s episode, Heather and Ute are talking about how far you can travel on horseback in a day. Naturally, there are some huge differences between an endurance rider with his Arabian horse and the average weekend rider with his Irish Cob, therefore it is extremely difficult to generalize. But we are giving you some examples of what can be done and talk about limitations and considerations. There are of course a lot of factors influencing the speed and distance you can travel on a day or multi-day ride and we will discuss many of them such as weather, terrain, access to water and feed, and so on. But we also give you some tips on how to get your horse fit for the challenge and what you can do so that your next long ride will become a success.

So if you are planning a day or a multiple-day ride in the future, here are some great tips!

  1. Absolutely! Horses are individuals and perform differently, even ones of the same breed. Like humans, some may be exceptional athletes and others, not so much.
