I have the fastest horse in the world, or ever!

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.
