How far would/do you travel?

So I've finally found a place that has good facilities, an accredited instructor and with good horsey reviews from horsey peoples in my area and they lease horses.

BUT (yes there is always a but)

According to google maps it is 45minutes away, but my mum thinks 30mins would be more appropriate.

So my question is;

How far do you travel to your boarding place or how far would you be willing to travel?

Well I drive fast so I would get there in 35 mins. I wouldn't go more than 35 minutes away though unless I REALLY loved it.

Anything under an hour is reasonable for me, for regular boarding. My coach's place is close to four hours away so when my horse is there, or both him and I are there I have to drive a lot! Usually I stay with relatives, but if I'm just visiting for the day it is a lot of driving.
I am really really really picky about where I board and there's about 3 places near me that I would consider boarding at (out of like 50ish). I am at the closest one right now and it can be up to a 45 minute drive. The others are 60 to 90 minutes away.

Anything under an hour would be ok with me, except in addition to working full time, I also go to school online through my community college. Because of study time, I need to be around 15 minutes away, or else I'd never sleep! Great facilities, instruction, and care is definitely worth it!

Yeah well the way I see it, there is pretty much nothing under 30minutes that works for me so I don't really have a choice.

I'll have my own transport so it shouldnt be too bad.

If there isn't anything suitable for under 30 min it doesn't really sound like you have a choice! What's another 15 minutes anyways? I say go for it!

Yeah, well that is what I figure. Now I'm just waiting for the BO to get back to me!
