My horse is roughly 35-40 minutes away, depending on traffic. I don't like it and there are other barns in the area, but I have yet to find one that I like. Every barn in my area has something I don't like, or alot of somethings I don't like. The only good thing to where I am now is the large indoor arena and the hot/cold wash area. I have yet to find another barn in my area where the wash area has hot/cold water to bathe the horses with. I could go on and on, but I won't. I am currently on the hunt for somewhere new that is not listed in the phone book. I put out some help to other horse friends I have and to the vet and farrier. Nothing yet, but hopefully soon.

I have always been able to keep my horses in my backyard, but since I'm going to college, it's a long drive to make everyday, even every weekend. I was so spoiled! I have one horse up here with me, staying about 10-15 minutes away at a private boarders house.

It's just so odd having to drive somewhere, when i could just walk out my back door before. But it is well worth it =]

my horses are at my parents house, which is 90 miles away. That is why I'm currently not showing or riding. I miss them. My Max Man was my stress relief and also really made me feel complete. Someday, I'll have another pony and they'll be with a trainer which will probably be at least that far away. The hope is for hubby and I to buy a farm, but with the cost of land here (3K & up), that will probably be a good piece down the road. We found 80 acres that we loved but it was $400K...

My barn is about 5 min from my house. I love that it's so close. It's not the best or fanciest barn, but I love the horses and people there and my girl is happy.

My horses are always anywherefrom five to twenty minutes away... it just depends on how long it takes me to find them in the pasture and whether or not they decide to play 'keep away' with me... Lol.

They're in the pasture behind the house...
