Oh, yes. All the English barns in my area are an hour away, if not more. My current barn is one hour exactly, driveway to driveway. Thankfully, 90% of that is on wide open roads and only a few minutes of city traffic.
The drive is long, but it gives me time to visualize what I need to work on, and then the drive back gives me time to think about the lesson and things I liked or didn't like, things I need to work on ... Although I do have to confess that I drive 45 minutes to work 5 days a week -- in the opposite direction of the barn. So, I'm used to lengthy commutes.
Having XM/Sirius has helped tremendously. When I get tired of the music, there's always comedy or news/chat channels.
