    My current barn is just under 20 minutes away. However, if I catch the lights, it can be as easy of a drive as 10 minutes. The previous barn I rode at was almost 30 minutes away.

    I've read somewhere that if your barn is over 1/2 hour away from where you live, you are less likely to be motivated to visit. Seems pretty logical to me!

    I spent 8 years with a 2 hour trip to get to my horses. They are kept at my Dad's barn and I used to live 2 hours away. That would make for a pretty short weekend and a pretty long one at the same time. It sucked having to drive back and forth to ride then go back to work and school.

    I would DEFINITELY agree with the statistic you give, justsambam! I see my horse twice a week at the best because life just gets too busy and I don't want to drive 30+ mins. I found a barn I'm moving him to july 1st that will be 15 mins from my new apartment- perfect!

    Plus, they have a rule if you don't come out to get your horse out of his stall and working 4 days a week minimum they MAKE you put him in exercise (lounging or hot walker or riding) with them. I'm sure they make a lot of money that way with busy people, but I think it's extra motivation to get out there since I will not want to spend extra money per month just cause I was lazy!

    I live 5 minutes away. So fortunate to be that close.

    Right now I board 45 min away, and my mom drives me so I only get out there once a week. Im moving in 2 weeks and I will be about 7 min away from my barn and I will be there every day. Its a nice change.

    The place where my horse is from is about 10 min away. Short drive.

    I like the idea of that actually only because some people don't take their horses out. Just tie em up or let them in a pen for a short while untill their stall is cleaned. That's no life for a horse. I know there are some days that can be like this but every day I find it unacceptable.Oh and also I can realize if your horse is in stall rest.

    I would do it! I travel 30 minutes in one direction to my job everyday, so what's another 15 minutes? :] I guess it's ultimately up to your mom, though. Just keep talking to her about it.
