In general, horses can generally run as fast as 38 miles per hour (61 km/h).

The fastest breed of horse is the American Quarter horse, which can reach up to 55 m/h (88 km/h) for a short distance.

A Thoroughbred horse can only run as fast as 45mph. A Thoroughbred horse can hold its speed longer than an American Quarter horse, but the American Quarter horse is still faster for a short period of time.
