It's not clear to me if the last sentence is referring to the horse's
speed going cross-country, or the horse's speed in combat. My first
impression was it was the former.

Sources I remember about horses said that they didn't really average much
faster than humans, for sustained travel without accumulating fatigue.
What they do do is reduce the human's fatigue, and of course if you are
willing to wear out your horse, you can make better time. Hence _stage_
coaches, pony express, etc.
