My area is so rural, but not alot of horse people in my side of the county. In order to board at a nice big facility with lots of amenities its a 30-40 minute ride. I asked one of my fellow riders about boarding around here and her facility is booked with no openings any time soon and she suggested the ones that are 30-40 mins away. Unless I can find a needle in a hay stack, small owned barn and then I won't be getting any help with feeding or putting my horse in and out. I really do need the full time help even if I have to pay more. Is that too far? What if an emergency happens and it takes me time to leave work and then travel that far? I think of it the same way as if it was my child.
