Is a horse faster than a cheetah?
a cheetah can hit 75 mph while a horse can run at 50 mph. thus, the answer is no.
A cheetah would've passed a horse in 1 second. (If it was hungry at the time) Cheetahs have been clocked at 70 - 75 mph in short bursts. Horses only make 25 -30 mph, with a record sprint speed of 55 mph. Yes, a cheetah can run faster than a horse. Cheetahs are the fastest land animals over short distances. In a distance race, however, the horse would win hands down.
The answer is both yes and no. No meaning that a cheetah will always be able to out sprint a horse as the cheetahs top speed is about 70 mph, while a horse can sprint at up to 55 mph. Yes means that the horse has more endurance and can hold a moderate speed of 20 to 40 mph over a far longer distance than the cheetah can.
