Wow, I'm really surprised at how far some of you travel for lessons! I'm a teen so I had to find a stable/farm that is in a reasonable distance for obvious reasons. The barn is about 30 minutes away. I don't think I would travel any farther. It's nice to have a farm close, so that you can go on last minute notice trail rides.
There are quite a few barns that are closer to me, heck there is one right down the road I live on! I would rather travel for a better barn, then settle for one I'm not happy with that is closer.
