How Fast Can Your Horse Walk?

Use your car’s odometer to measure out 1 mile of trail near the road. Walk your horse this mile at his normal pace, timing how long he takes to cover the distance. Use the chart below to calculate how fast he typically walks per hour. Time your next trail ride. Now you can see how far you’ve gone based on how fast your horse walks.
