This very thing is up to much debate. There are sources that say that yes, a horse is faster than a greyhound, but others that argue otherwise.
Nope!. Zebras can run fast, but only barely fast enough to escape being chased and caught for a meal. Horses are much faster because they have been domesticated for years to do so.
No.. The fastest horses, bred and raced for short distances at speed, can reach 50 miles per hour. The top speed of an emu is 50 kilometres per hour (about 30 miles per hour). The advantage the emu has over almost any other animal (including a small, lithe cat) is its ability to make a sudden 180 d…egree turn while running at top speed, which enables it to outrun its predators.

A horse is able to gallop faster for short bursts. However, thekangaroo has endurance to maintain a fast bounding for much longerthan a horse can.
No. I would say that after 5 metres, the giraffe would trip over it's own long legs. Then, after the giraffe had got back up again, the horse would have already galloped past.
No and yes, the greyhound is faster than a horse in short distance while the horse would win in long distance.
Yes a horse can run faster than a camel however a camel can run a lot farther than a horse and are a lot better at survival in almost every way.
yes because if the giraffe tries to run too fast the giraffe will trip on it's own legs and when it gets get back up the horse would already won by now
Well most dogs would win because the amount of dogs bred to swim while horses weren`t specifically bred to swim.
top speed=Lion=70 mph,horse=61 mph. top speed=Lion=70 mph,horse=61 mph Horses can run up to 40 mph or more. Lions can reach 35 mph, but for only short distances.
Unfortunately, no. Horses are faster than camels. Maybe look for this question in answers.com : Can a horse run faster than a camel? Well it seems that horses are faster but I'm not very sure.
No, a giraffe can not run faster than a horse. A giraffe has a topspeed of 32 mph while a horse has a top speed of 54 mph.
A deer can out run a horse because the deer can out run a lion but a horse can not.
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 shor…t distances. In a distance race, however, the horse would win hands down. ( Full Answer )
1.The greyhound is considered the fasted dogs going at the speed of 40-45mph. 2. And the fastest horse going at the speed of about 45mph. So in short distance the dog would own the horse but in long distance the horse would win. . Yes the Greyhound is the fastest dog running approximately at… 45mph, while a Quater horse runs at the speed of 40mph, if it were a long distance the horse would win while short distance the dog would win.

Kangaroos are not faster than horses over short distances. However, they are able to maintain a high speed over a much longer distance than a horse can.< BR> Kangaroos have large, strong tendons in their hind legs which act as "springs". The springing motion requires less energy than running does,… so kangaroos are able to bound for longer distances than other mammals with the standard four legs can run. Their strong back legs and elongated hind feet enable them to bound. Kangaroos are able to travel long distances at a high speed, expending very little energy. They are very energy-efficient, and this is linked directly to the physical action of bringing their hind legs up with each hop. Every hop literally refills the lungs. ( Full Answer )
Yes, they run over forty miles an hour, alligators can move quickly, but only for a short distance.
it really depends on how strong the horse is, what breed it is, etc.... if the horse is light but weak it wont run very fast...but if it is light and strong then it will. also...thoroughbreds usually run faster than warmbloods etc.. so generally speaking, yes. but theres alot more than weight that… affects how fast a horse runs. ( Full Answer )
Yes, horses top out at around 45 mph. No way!!! A cuba runs at a top speed of 104 kilometers an hour!!! (like a cheeta or something) I am pretty sure a racing horse can run faster than half that!!!
a cheetah can hit 75 mph while a horse can run at 50 mph. thus, the answer is no.
Well actually the greyhound is the fastest dog going at 45mph while the fastest horse only goes at the speed of 40mph.
A horse is restricted by the pace it can move its legs. A bike has the advantage of using a gear ratio. And when heading downhill it gets even better. Bikes can hit 80 KMH/50MPH, which a lot more than horses can.
A cheetah is the fastest land mammal on earth so a cheetah is faster than a horse. And so is a gazelle.
well or course the kangaroo is faster because 1) it hops 2) just use your common sense
The horse is a little faster than elk, horse can run 47.5 mph, Elk45 mph, though perhaps in some extreme situations Elk could befaster than a horse.
horses could run way faster because elephants are heavier and horses are lighter and have a balanced diet they eat then run
Any car in good working order is faster than a horse on a good road. The top speed of a race horse is around 40 mph and that is only for a few miles. Horses can go where cars can not and so would be faster if crossing streams and jumping gullies and hedges is needed.
Proably I doubt it, considering how big and bulky buffalo are with the legs that appear a little too short compared to sleek, long legged horses bred and raised for running fast. This is why the native Americans were able to kill more buffalo once they started riding horses. They could catch up t…o and keep up with buffalo easier. ( Full Answer )
A "bolt" is not a gait, it is simply when a horse takes off unexpectedly. The fastest speed a horse can travel is at a gallop when they can reach speeds of 40 MPH.
A mare is a female horse, so a mare could not really said to be faster than a horse. It really depends on the breed and bloodlines. A fit, thoroughbred mare will be faster than a lazy trail horse. A well bred thoroughbred mare will usually beat a male from unknown, inferior bloodlines.
No a horse can not run as fast as a rhino. Although, a horse can run alot longer then a rhino can.
an 80lb rabbit can run 200 mph. an average 2 lb horse can only gallop at the speed of half and half.
No a rabbit is not faster than a horse. A horse can reach speed of 18 mph and faster.
No. The fastest a horse can go is a racing quarter horse, which can go up to speeds of 55 mph for a quarter of a mile. Motorcylces can go at least wtice as fast for much longer distances.
The Average speed fastest for a deer is 40 mph, While a horse' top speed is 35-40 mph. So the deer is faster than the horse because the deer isn't really trying. However it has not been tested.
No, horses are bigger with longer legs than donkeys. No they cannot, but I am sure they could beat some of the horses I back.
Almost never. For the simple reason that an average adult horse has a 12-13 ft. stride. Ponies, even larger ponies will have a smaller stride so they cover less ground than the horse, and the horse will get to the finish first.
Cheetahs have very flexible spines, a strong back and hindquarters.They can manage a huge stride length and have the rightPower-to-weight ratio to propel themselves very fast for a fewseconds.
No. Horses are the fastest land animal next to the cheetah. But the Whippet is faster than the Greyhound.
Yes, Thoroughbreds are the fastest horse breed in the world. Also the colour of the horse does not affect the speed.
No. The cheetah is the fastest land mammal in the world. The cheetah, can reach speeds of between 112 and 120 km/h in short bursts covering distances up to 500 m. It has the ability to accelerate from 0 to over 100 km/h in three seconds. In terms of miles per hour, they can reach around 70 to 75 m…ph. ( Full Answer )
Prehistoric horses were much smaller. The horses we see today have one toe ( the hoof) and a remnant of another (the chestnut). Horses from that time had multiple toes, and as they evolved, they had less and less toes. To answer your question, that would be no. Horses in these periods are much faste…r that they were then. ( Full Answer )
No! The horses of prehistoric times were diminutive. They didn't have the long legs and sleek bodies.
Not on land, maybe in water. However, as far as starting time is concerned, a crocodile has a much faster reaction "start" time than a horse does.
That just depends on the situation. In a race, a horse is, without doubt, faster. But when cornered in a corral, both can be just as fast as the other in terms of reaction time.
The answer would be both yes and no. A Quarter horse can sprint for a quarter mile (440 yards) at speeds of 40 to 55 MPH, after that however their speed will decrease greatly as they are not bred to have endurance. A mustang will gallop at speeds of 18 to 25 MPH, they would likely be able to pass th…e Quarter horse after the quarter mile sprint. ( Full Answer )
Some horses are fast, others are slow. Some horses are faster than a hare, others are not. This may be due in part to many contributing factors including size, medical conditions, or the gait the horse is using.
The greyhound is faster than the horse because it has a flexiblespine that coils and extends to increase both speed and changes indirection. The energy expenditure is very high and, like the cheetah, greyhounds reach a state ofexhaustion very rapidly. Horses have a relatively inflexible spine impar…ting both speed andendurance. This configuration also makes them good at carrying theweight of a rider. ( Full Answer )
Oxen are large, heavily muscled steers bred to pull carts and wagons. They could not out run the average sound horse.
Both could be used in different situations: The horse ran fastest of all the horses in the race. The horse ran faster than all of the other horses. When the man, the horse and the dog ran, the horse ran fastest. The horse ran faster than the man and the dog.
