How many hours a day trail ride a horse daily?

It all depends on your horse. If you have a horse with good stamina, or you plan to only walk and trot, you can ride for longer. If you're like me, you love cantering, galloping and jumping over home made jumps :). You can't trail ride as long, it will tire your horse out. Sometimes, I'm on my horse for over 2 1/2 / 3 hours, but I give my horse breaks. It depends on what you can do and what your horse can do. :) I <3 riding :) hope this helps you!

Can a horse recover enough from navicular syndrome to become a good trail horse?

The primary variable in this is how bad was the navicular syndrome? If the navicular bone has not rotated or dropped, with a good farrier who knows how to set corrective and therapeutic shoes and a good equine veterinarian working with the farrier you may be able to retain a good amateur non-competitive trail horse. However, most horses with navicular syndrome will not recover to the point that they would be sound for anything more competitive than local shows or the 4-H ring.

Paint horses are good for western, and can be used for English too, so that could be a good horse for you. Tennessee Walking horses could be a nice option for you because they are very versatile and have great gaits for trail riding. I use my TWH mare for mostly trail riding, but I also use her for western and I do a little bit of casual bareback jumping on her- proof that TWH's can be used for everything you do.
