horses and distance

How long, at a fairly relaxed pace, on fairly level ground, would it take a rider on a horse to travel 30 miles, say (if you could give me approx times for 15 and 20 as well, that'd be great)? How long would the same distance take at near-enough top speed (as fast as horse could manage)?

Yes, I'm writing a fantasy novel with a *tinsy* bit of horse riding in, and no, I know nothing about horses. In my defence, there are only two scenes, I think.
