holding out for an indoor?

I'm looking to take lessons and lease again and i need to find a new barn.I really love the convenienceof an indoor so i can always ride but it looks like the only places i can find with an indoor are about 40 min away the ones with no indoor are 30 there is one indoor with 30 but they seem snooty from their website which would you choose?

Explain what you mean when you say "but they seem snooty from their website"

bummer you're in Jersey. I know of a ton of wonderful places in NY.
Anyway, i would probably die not being able to ride all year round. So for me, an indoor on the East Coast is kind of a must. And you never know... my riding teams website looks pretty snooty too, but we're all a bunch of silly, horse loving people. So i'd say to make the drive, take a couple lessons, and see how you feel. :)

You are only talking about an extra 10 mins, go with the barn that you feel more comfortable with.

Your best bet would be to call these barns and ask for a tour. The only true way of knowing which one is for you is to actually go visit and check them out.

Honestly, I would MUCH rather drive further and go to the place that I would prefer in the long run. However, you might get a certain vibe from the website, but it doesn't mean the people are like that. You should go and look at both places and see which one you like best. If you want a barn you will be motivated to stick with, pick the place you HONESTLY love more. (:

God bless, englishaqh (:
