Horses have been the tried and true method of traveling in the days before cars, alongside of oxen and mules.

When traveling long distances on a horse, the standard was to have a horse breed and trained for such a purpose and be within the proper age to travel (not to young, not to old).

When these conditions were met, the average is true:

At a good trot gait intermixed with slower 'resting' pace, while traveling in good conditions on good terrain, a horse could travel for 8 hours (with frequent rests) at around an average of between 3 mph (walk) to 8 mph (trot).

Many would consider 25-30 miles in a day a successful day of travel. If conditions are PERFECT and the horse is well rested, there have been days where a horse can exceed 60 miles of travel.

That would be Speed. Speed is the distance you are going divided by the time it takes. This will calculate the average speed you were traveling.

If you mean the average speed, simply divide the total distance by the total time.

The moon's average distance from earth is listed as 384,400 km.Traveling that distance in a straight line at 100 km/hr takes 3,844 hours = 160days 4hours

That cannot be calculated without knowing the average speed over that distance.

Average of 20 miles per day, pushing it the horse could go 30 with no ill effects.

The safety distance between horses vary between different horses. For example, some horses may gey very angry and may even kick if there is a horse behind them, a long distance away. but typically with most horses you will find that an average safe distance would be about one horse length apart.

Actual speed is the speed you are traveling at any given moment at any given point. Average speed is figured by dividing the distance you traveled by the time it took you to drive that distance.

traveling around it in a plane, almost-circular path, at an average distance of about 93 million miles;

On average it is in the low 80ft range. Depends on the vehicle, yr/make/model.

You multiply the speed at which you are traveling by the time spent traveling.

The driver checks the average speed of the car, which is the distance per hour is going. Average speed is the constant speed something is traveling at.

The distance between Montreal and Newfoundland is 707.3 miles. By road, the average traveling time between the two places is 28 hours and 27 minutes.

to find average speed divide the distance traveled by the time it took to travel that distance so for example: what is the average speed of a runner that traveled 10 miles in 2 hours? 10(distance)/2(time) = 5(speed), so the answer would be 5 miles per hour although they may not have been traveling 5 miles per hour the whole time the average speed they were traveling is 5 miles per hour. also you can find the distance by multiplying the time by the speed. and to find time, multiply speed by distance. (dont forget units will vary for answers) hope this helped :)

Velocity (or speed) = Distance รท Time In this example, speed = 300/6 = 50 kph

The distance from Florence to La Spezia is 146.7 km. Traveling by road, this journey would take on average 1 hour and 40 minutes, depending on traffic.

When traveling 30-mph, the braking distance is 45-feet, and the total stopping distance is 75-feet. This is the length of a semi-truck and trailer.

The average speed of a horse's walk, which could be maintained for long distances, is three to four miles per hour. The average distance horses are capable of covering within one continuous day is thirty miles.

This depends on what you mean by 'Traveling horse'. all horses are nomadic and therefore travel at will. Horses are also transported by humans and thus could be said to be traveling horses. Lastly there is a type of horse bred by Romany people who are known as Travellers, Tinkers, and Gypsies in some parts of the world.

No and yes, the greyhound is faster than a horse in short distance while the horse would win in long distance.

the use of the mustang horse was for traveling cause a mans horse was everything back then
