How far is your horse stable?

Well most of the properties that are decently priced here are about under 10 miles from my house, but they're also "in the country" as in there aren't as many cars as outside of my neighborhood kind of thing. All of the farms I have ridden at or worked at are all about 10 or more miles away! How far are your personal barns from your house or the ones you ride/work at?

It takes twenty minutes to half an hour to drive to the barn for me.

The one I am at right now takes about 10-15 during high traffic hours, and about 5 during low traffic hours. I've gone as far as a half hour each way before, but I was living in a much larger city and I had to get past all urban areas.

Help me horse forum! You're my only hope!

I am about 12-13 km's from my house, or 12-14 km's from my boyfriends house, depending on which way I go....according to google maps.

12 kms is roughly 7.5 miles.

It takes me about 20 to 30 minutes to drive the 15 miles to the pasture my horses are at-- they don't have a barn or anything, just 20 acres of woods and grass that I'm renting.

I hate that they don't have shelter besides trees in this weather!!!

Takes me less than 5 minutes to drive to the yard

In Va I have to drive 40 minutes to get to a barn that meets my criteria-caring knowledgeable people, indoor arena, affordable and I can ride western. Most places are strictly english.

In Ny when I am there-10 minutes to my friends farm. Lovely.

I'm in rural Ga., and I ride English, so I have to drive about 50 miles/1 hour to the barn where I ride. (Funny enough, all the rest of the barns I looked at are about the same distance from my house.)

If I rode western, it would only be about 20 minutes.
