    Depends on stamina. My appaloosa, not the fastest, but goes all day and maybe 40 miles. My sisters paint would call it a day about 20 mils max.

    Riders planning to cover very long distances usually only average around 20 miles a day on horseback. However, on one ride that covered a total of 2,600 miles, the horses averaged 31 miles per day. Modern endurance rides cover 100 miles that must be completed in less than 24 hours.
