Ours are here at home. I do envy those who board. I know that sounds weird, but they can go away for a week-end or more and not have to find someone to care for the horses. I can set out auto feeders/water for the dogs, cats and chickens but the horses need some sort of care every day.

My horse is about 15 minutes (give or take) from my house in town at my boyfriend's place. He is boarded there with their mare. =)

Depending on what traffic feels like doing it's anywhere from 30-45 minutes. It's totally worth it though. The place is a private barn in the middle of nowhere with a 225x100 indoor heated arena, large box stalls, customized feeding, turnout, blanketing, etc.. And it is very reasonable. The only thing that sucks is that you can't bring your own trainer in and it is the perfect facility for clinics!!
I however am one of those crazies that would probably drive up to an hour one way for my horse to be perfectly taken care of and am willing to pay for it too.

About 20 yards, lol....and that's only because I'm on the far side of the house in relation to the pasture at the moment.

That's about what mine is like... it's AMAZING! So I feel like the 30-45(sometimes HOUR ) drive will be worth it in the end. I just got back from picking up a boarding contract there and it took me almost an hour to get home because there was an accident. But the barn is so great, people are so friendly, and my horse will be taken care of like a little king... so I feel it's the right choice!

I miss living at home where he was about 400 feet from my bedroom window though :(

MIne are less than a mile away.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.
