Wikipedia supports this, with a claim of 30 miles (50km) per day for a small mounted company. This involves the horse walking for most of the duration of the day, with short breaks. Of course, a fit horse can travel further than this. Mounted soldiers would ride their horses 50-60 miles (80-100 km) in a day.

Quick answer: if you use mostly highways and some country, 13 hours and 15 minutes, using mostly country roads and some highway, 7 and a half hours, if you use all highway roads possible on your journey, 9 hours and 40 minutes, using all country roads 3 hours and 20 minutes.
Heck, it’s possible for a horse to RUN (with or without rider) to death all by itself, if it already had heart or breathing issues. … Most horses, though, will stop or at least slow down when they reach the exhaustion point.

On average, horses cost $60, pigs $5, milking cows just over $20, and goats only $2. A farm worker earned $23 per month, a place to sleep, and meals.
While your body is made for walking, the distance you can achieve at an average walking pace of 3.1 miles per hour depends on whether you have trained for it or not. A trained walker can walk a 26.2-mile marathon in eight hours or less, or walk 20 to 30 miles in a day.

Some pioneers did sleep in their wagons. Some did camp on the ground—either in the open or sheltered under the wagon. But many used canvas tents. Despite the romantic depictions of the covered wagon in movies and on television, it would not have been very comfortable to travel in or sleep in the wagon.
Major threats to pioneer life and limb came from accidents, exhaustion, and disease. Crossing rivers were probably the most dangerous thing pioneers did. Swollen rivers could tip over and drown both people and oxen. Such accidents could cause the loss of life and most or all of valuable supplies.

Well-Known Member. An average horse walks at around the same speed as a human so about 4-5 miles per hour. If you are adding trot into it then I reckon it would take about 1hr.
The first stagecoach started out from San Francisco on September 14, 1858, at ten minutes after midnight. This was John Butterfield’s time schedule that set the goal for the time of arrival at each “timetable” station. The average distance between them was about 160 miles.
