    I actually don't have to travel anywhere.
    Walk about ten meters to the dressage arena, or twenty to the jump field.

    Right now, 15 min. However if ever I got the money and time to go to a more serious barn for eventing or jumping, it'd be more like 45min in good conditions.

    You didn't mention who would be paying for the lessons & the gas? Maybe they would rather build a college fund, or put something aside for their retirement? Maybe you have siblings? Or their parents might need $$ help. There may be lots of reasons that they aren't as anxious as you are to get you some lessons.

    I travel 45-60 min, my gelding lives with my trainer. He went last spring for 30 days and now he has been there 5 months! My trainer is worth it though, good trainer is worth a longer comute

    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.

    Rich, unfortunately it's the price to pay for the good trainer sometime. My jumping barn is much closer but all good dressage trainers are within an hour as a minimum.
