For horse loves in the Mpls/St. Paul area, a 45-60 minute drive to a barn/livery in the surrounding semi-rural areas is common.

My barn is a mile up the road, so about 1 or 2 minutes :)

35 minutes from home, 1/2 hour from work.

About 5 minutes. We live right on the edge of the city, so it's just a quick drive down the highway. There's a lot of boarding places around here and I specifically chose this one because of it's proximity to where I live. I knew if I had to drive 30+ minutes to see my horse, I probably wouldn't be able to see it as often, and I'd burn through gas/money like crazy.

My barn is about 20-30 minutes away depending on traffic.

I loved when my horses where just outside my doorstep and I will be the first to admit I took it for granted! They are about a 15-20 min drive away now about 25km. However I love the facility that they are at! I did board at a barn where the drive was about 45 mins away, probably an hour in the winter. I wouldn't want to board that far away again!

It takes me 30 minutes, more or less, to get to my barn. Insure do miss the 5 minute drive I used to have, but I DONT miss the politics of that barn.

I will take the extra 25 minute drive over the suffocating show barn environment I was in. Plus now I have EVERYTHING at the barn I'm at.

It's a ten minute drive to my barn! I don't mind, especially since the last couple barns I was at were 45 minute drives.
