Do they have to dribble the ball the length of the court, or just a flat sprint? Barrel racing could be used for judging time.I’m sure someone has a time and distence it takes a horse from third barrel to end.Might have to add the time it takes to get around the barrel to estimate the accelaration from standing still. Acceleration will play such a huge roll in such a short distance. The cheetah went from 0 to 60 in a fraction of a send and nearly won despite the horse’s huge head start. on human stride length, stride rate, and other interesting parameters.

Now, it is general consensus that a horse would outrun a cheetah over long distances but is no match over short distances. What about a man riding a horse vs. a horse riding a man? My experience with horses has told me that horses don’t require much of a start (10-15 yards) to reach max speed, and, given that a horse has a max speed higher than the human, I would predict a win for the horse.I know the question is framed around a thoroughbred horse, but considering that 2-year-old QH winners on small tracks in South Dakota generally post times of 13.5 - 14 seconds over 250 yards, I feel as though a top thoroughbred could maintain something similar for the length of a basketball court. If the horse is trained for short distance—as well-trained as the human—my money’s on the horse. I would say man would beat the horse on a basketball court. If you take the 3.3 secs for a human to cover 94 feet and the 7 seconds(from both articles) for the thoroughbred to cover 394 feet, and then assume it’s a tie at 94 feet as the horse overtakes the human - the horse would have to cover the remaining 300 feet in 3.7 seconds, or 81 ft/sec, which is roughly 55 Mph - the high end speed for a quarter horse referenced by Jason above. Barrel racing times are under 20 seconds (good times are under 15) and although the long last leg after the final barrel is when a lot of horses make their time, they’ve still gotta hurry to and around those three barrels and the first two are less than 100-feet apart.
