Only experience I can add is we sometimes have standard patterns with 40' score instead of 60'. The horses usually run about a full second faster on the shorter score so thats 40' feet SHORTER than standard ( 20' coming and going)SO 10' I would PREDICT to be about a 10th or 2.

WrapN3MN - 2017-04-19 1:43 PM I was told once that each stride is a 10th......not sure how much truth there is to that.
Well that cannot be. I have gotten in to the habit of counting strides at the NFR from the time the come in to the arena to when they exit and most do it in I think 36-37 strides. That would make it a 3.7 second run....
I am pretty sure they meant that on a straight away run. A stride around a barrel is going to be much slower then a stride running in or home. that being said its not a super accurate way to measure as my little mares strides are no where close to being able to cover the ground that a big old beast can. she would take 2 to most horses 1.
