 A standard coach would be four. Six horses would allow for greater speeds but would also need changing at every coaching Inn to maintain the speeds.

I first read "How many daft horses are required to draw a carriage?". I expected some kind of joke, but well. I guess it depends on the carriage, but 4-6  seems to be the normal number of horses needed.

If you are using daft horses though, you might want to go for as few as possible to minimize the risk/damage if (or rather when) something goes wrong.
