My horses are outside all day in the winter, usually 7ish to 7ish, then they spend the winter nights inside. In the summer, they are out 24 hours a day. I would never board in a place that required my horse be in for longer than that.
45 minutes a day really isn't enough time for a horse to be a horse, I'd try and get him as much time as possible.
Oh, and once my friend's horse is moved somewhere else and it's back to just my two, my 16 month old will stay outside with a run-in during the winter as well. She has the coat to handle it. My mare gets clipped, and it quite the princess, she would be miserable if I made her stay out in the icky winter weather. =]
