The horses which Tommy and Avram ride into San Francisco are different from the horses in earlier scenes, which were smaller and used for galloping for long distances. The horses in this later scene are of the breed called American Quarter Horses. You can tell this because their heads and faces are smaller, while their bodies are larger and more muscular, and their rumps (which Avram would call the tuchas) are much rounder than the rumps of long-distance-running horses. The Quarter Horse is very swift for a short distance; the earlier horses, perhaps of a mixed breed, were used for their stamina and placidness. See more
The Jewish Sabbath does not necessarily end when the sun goes down, but when it gets dark which could be up to an hour later. Also, an observant Jew would not be able to travel outside a city on Sabbath, even on foot, for more than 2,000 biblical "cubits" (~1,000 yards) from the place he was in when Sabbath began. Therefore, Avram would not have been willing to travel, leading his horse, on Sabbath. It is also forbidden to carry on the Sabbath in a public domain (such as a road), or to make one's animal carry. This is another reason why Avram would refuse to travel. See more
