    Please tell me how long a Spanish Mustang can run for at full gallop or/ full speed before becoming winded.

    Thanks so much,

    like I said... it depends on the horse.... it isn't a breed... it is the horse personaly. You can have two quarter horses... one fit... one fat... they both have different times that they would get tired. You can't just pick a breed and say "how fast will it go and for how long?"

    what is this obsession with this topic anyway?

    Hi Laura5


    All I asked in my question, and hoped for. Required an answer from someone who knows horses, maybe a breeder. Who would not give a complicated reply" without actually even answering my simple question"!

    "If a person ask how long can a farm horse run". A person with common sense would imagine any ADVERAGE BASIC AMERICAN WORK HORSE in it's prime. Don't care what freekin breed! Don't most horses have a well known speed of about 50 to 60 miles per hour. Don't most people in adverage good health know matter what race/nationality, run at the same speed, and tire about the same time. I'm not an expert. If the damn horse was old or weak, or what ever, I would have included such information, would'nt that be the odvious thing to do. I was looking for a roundabout answer not a scientific response.

    Question: How fast can an old fat nasty 10 year old lazy "spanish mustang" run before tiring. Maybe 100 yards or maybe none.

    PS Again I'm not obessed with the question, just curious. Although now I don't care one bit anymore.

    Anyhow thanks for your time.

    Mike, I'm gonna have to back Laura on this one. No expert trainer or breeder would be able to give you a definite answer along the lines you're looking for, with the lack of information you've provided. As Laura said, it depends on the horse. If you can't offer specifics, noone can offer you an answer. Yes, there is a maximum speed a horse can hit. But not every horse, or ever breed for that matter, is designed to run at that speed. Some breeds aren't designed to "run" at all.

    To: OTTB Ivr (Thanks)

    OTTB Ivr,

    "Believe it or not your answer is well understood". But again when I mentioned a Spanish Stallion, without detail, I was looking for some sort of stimulating answer. Like well Mike, possibly a young Spanish Stallion can perform at one level, and an older one can possibly perform at another. Nothing percise if you will. Just a basic idea. If I wanted specifics I would have included them. Although asking a question in full detail is a major plus in any event.

    I guest two wrongs don't make a right on this note?

    Anyhow Thanks,

    ? Why the attitude? No one can answer such a question.

    because the first answer to my question, stated that I need to give specifics on exactly the horses personality. I figured that without a defect in any horses personality I could get a round-a-bout figure on my question. But because I do know that most, if all horses, love to run, and their would'nt be a very large difference to take into consideration. All I was looking for was a basic answer. Mind you I know not very much about any horse.

    I sorry if I offended anyone at all. Your absolutely right it's not worth getting all worked up about.

    Your answer the way you phrase it would have well answered my question from the very start.
