Is there further context for these?

I see angles, but no lengths. How much ground are these legends covering per stride?

Absolutely. Most are in different stages of the gallop.

John Henry,s stride length was 24 feet.
Secretariat, s was 25.5 feet.
Man o War,s was 28 feet.
I only know this from a measuring stick at the Kentucky Horse Park.
Monty Roberts always said Affirmed was the most physically correct horse he ever saw.

The Stride angle stuff is complete bullgelati. I've had a good look at it and written a post on it.

Thanks for the link Byron Thumbs Up

What I'd forgotten is, no matter how long the stride, more relevant is how quickly those legs move LOL

Bit similar to why he couldn't take the gap, it was going quicker than him.

Wasnt there someone who measured the stride length of Bernborough , and pronounced it to be some massive length ?  I vaguely recall reading about it some time ago now.

It is interesting, as the difference between  Black Caviar and Karuta Queen when they raced together, Looking at the little chestnut, she seemed like a sewing machine going flat out, while BC just looked comfortable covering ground with ease.
BC obviously had a huge stride together with amazing pace.
 
We use an Etrakka on our horses which measures stride distance, so it is not size of the animal that always counts, - Two horses of the same height and build can have almost a metre difference in their length of stride at 15spf.
 
So with that in mind rate of motion being equal, longer stride length will be the determining factor for overall speed from A to B.
My thoughts!
