How far do you drive to visit your horse?

So in regards to boarding, how long does it take for you to get to the barn?

About 10 minutes @ the most. ;)

My fiance and I don't live far from the barn, but we were considering moving them further away for better service. We never did as we plan on buying a house this summer and we don't want to be moving them every couple of months.

Right now I board my horse at a place that is about 10 min. Away.
However, back when I lived in NJ, I kept my horse at a place that was over an hour away - because it was the place where she would get the best care.

My theory is... my horse LIVES there - it has to be the best place for HER... and any inconvenience that I have to suffer is worth it so she is happy and healthy. :)

My barn is about 10 minutes away, AND its a really nice place. :P lucky me.

No more than 10 mins. I don't know what I would do if my horses were any more than 15 mins away

Half hour on a good traffic day. Sometimes it can take upwards an hour.

Yikes you poor thing. Good thing your drives are worth the effort!

Haha agreed. I live in downtown Calgary, so there are absolutely NO barns "near" me. The last place I boarded at was 45 mins away on a great traffic day, 1 1/2 hours on a bad traffic day (**** Glenmore trail!)
