My 88 year old father is fond of telling me about the buggy rides he used to go on with his grandmother. This would have been in rural Georgia in the early 1930s.
Not knowing much about horses, I’m curious about this mode of travel.
What distance could you travel & still return home in one day?
How far could you travel before having to water & feed the horse?
Hitched to a buggy, did the horse run at a trot? How fast is that?
Feel free to answer these & any questions I didn’t think to ask.
