Luckily I'm only about 15 minutes away when I'm at home and only about 5 minutes away when I'm at work! About 12 years ago when I was living in CA the horse I had at the time was almost an hour away...........I'll never do that again!

Same here. In fact i don't know of any boarding stables here! lol
I have my horse on private rented grazing. I do all the work myself. Less than 5 mins drive.

I think depending on the facility I would be willing to move up to 30 mins to the barn itself. The place I am at is 15 mins away because I have to drive thru town which slows me down otherwise it would be less than 5 mins away.

my barn is about 15-20 minutes away. I'd love to board closer, but all the other horse stables in the arena keeps the horses in with only 2 hours turnout. I think a horse should be out 24/7 so having my horse in a stall all day was NOT an option.

yeah boarding facilities are few and far between in australia. most people either have their horses on their own property or agist at a private property or pony club. we are at a pony club and we travel about 30 minutes to get there. 25 when there isnt much traffic i do that twice a day

A major reason why people in the US don't board their horses at their house is because there isn't room...

I live in a suburb, so the houses are like 3 feet apart (not including drive way). We would have to move if we wanted land to keep our horses at our house.

It takes me 10 minutes, maybe. I love the barn I ride at - it's a great place.
