You don't want to get many more than that on a woods trail ride or you can get hour long back ups that will make the people in the rear just plain miserable. They have to wait and wait while the ones in the front a half mile up get to see what is going on. We learned that with Jeep trail rides and ended up limiting them the 25 vehicles. Even then it could get to be a pain for the people further back, especially if it is dry and dusty.
