There are several barns within 5-10 minutes from me, but I chose a barn that is 40 minutes away. It's the best facility for my rescue mare, since she came to me over 400 pounds underweight about 6 months ago. She now still needs about 150 pounds, and the barn where she is has huge, beautiful pastures, lots of trails for muscle building, spotless barn and stalls, best quality feed, hay, and alfalfa, and knowledgeable horse people on site 24/7. Even the full care boarded horse are turned out for at least 14 hours a day. She has been there a month, and is doing amazingly well. I went from seeing her every day(I kept her at a friends house in exchange for self care), to seeing her about 3 times a week. It's tough being away for so long, but I know she's in great hands. Definitely well worth the drive, knowing she's so well taken care of.

My barn is 20 minutes away (11 miles) and sometimes it feels like a chore just to drive out to see my horse.
