Is the horse carriage fast?

The answer to this is: the carriage is only as fast as the horse. Walk: Roughly 3-4 MPH. A pleasure show horse can go as slow as 2 mph. Gaited horses-- who do not trot-- can do a 'running walk' as fast as 15 mph. Trot: The trot is roughly 8-10 MPH. Again, a shorter striding horse could trot slower, and a horse with a long stride could move faster. Harness Racing (Trot/Pace): 20-35 MPH Canter/Lope: 10-17 MPH. Gallop - 20-45 MPH NOTE 1: It is generally considered bad form for any horse in harness to canter, lope, or gallop while hitched to a vehicle, as it is dangerous and ill-advised. NOTE 2: Many horse-drawn vehicles are referred to as "carriages" when in fact, they are not. Hearses, wagons, sulkies, carts etc all have different functions and are built to go at different speeds.

How long can a horse trot?

Horses can travel upwards of thirty (and some, even forty) miles per hour. They cannot sustain this pace for long, though. A horse can gallop a couple of miles at full steam, but the same horse can canter (or lope) much farther. Trotting (either a fast trot or a jog trot) isn't a bad way to travel, but you don't get very far very fast. Faster trotting is tiring to the rider as well because you are posting (rising up and down out of the saddle on alternate beats). It all really depends on the breed, fitness and stride length of the horse.
