I just uploaded my garmin recording from last night’s ride and got a bit of a surprise when I took a look at max speed:
Wow! That’s one fast horse!
Lets compare this to some things.
Speed of sound = 768 mph therefore my horse was travelling Mach 2.2
Fastest animal (with the exception of Bentley), cheetah = 70 mph therefore hes 24.2x faster than a cheetah
Fastest car, Bugatti Veyron = 270 mph therefore hes 6.3 x faster than a bugatti
Fastest plane recorded, SR-71 Blackbird = 2,242 mph therefore he travels at 75% of this speed.
