distance from barn

Hi, I was just wondering how far everyone lives from the barn they board their horses at and/or take lessons at.

Roughly about 30-40 minutes from our place downtown. I would love to tally our gas bill over the last two years since we moved downtown, I'm pretty sure it'd give us a heart attack.

However, we keep them on my roommates moms farm, so we often spend weekends there, so it's not so bad.

Mine used to be in the 20-30 minute range, and I'd been at that ranch for 6 years last summer when gas prices got so high. My truck is my daily driver AND takes premium, so I had to move them or lose them... so I moved them. Now that my boyfriend bought a house down the freeway from them, they are only about 7 miles away and I LOVE it. Except Tally's whole attitude change since I moved them... don't love that...

When I was a working student that the Eventing/Fox Hunting Barn I drove 1/2 hour one way. Spent up to 14 hours a day and then drove another 1/2 hour home. I did that Monday - Friday and even the weekends because I would ride - schooling or compeating.

Now, that we are at a new fascillity, I drive 5 mintues max to and 5 minutes home. It's quite nice :) :)

My barn's about 35 minutes. It's not that bad, but then again...it's not 15mins either. I don't mind the drive though, 'cause there aren't many turns & rarely any traffic! It's totally worth it though, I love my trainers.

My current barn is between 40-80 minutes away depending on traffic. At home the barn is 30-40 minutes away.
My poor little car :P
