Not only is the horse marginally faster (higher base stamina -- Horses can sprint much longer than the Dohvakiin!), but he also flaunts a blatant disregard for physics that can quickly turn into an incredible timesaving path.

Consider: When you're on foot, you must run around any mountains in your path.

Horses, on the other hand, have no qualms with running straight up the mountainous slopes. Image credit to Emperorr of Reddit: www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/ma565/bethesda_we_need_to_talk_about_your_horse_physics
