I've left Armidale now and looked at a horse agistment place today.

It was okay, really nice surroundings and big paddocks, but no real arena and at least half an hour from where I'll live, probably further and on not a good road. Which is a fair bit to drive everyday. How far do you guys travel to where you keep your horses?

Wow Nyx! Are you still considering Equine Science? It would be good to get a discount too. I'd probably buy too much. I'd like to own a second hand tack store one day I think.
I looked at a house too which I liked but they said they had someone else organised to look on Monday, and they'd let me know after that. So I'm not sure if they were keen or not. They asked to meet my dog, which is a good sign right? I hope I get that place but I am a bit worried.

my horse is a 3 minute drive and a 10 minute bike ride away lolz

Good luck on the houses! I think the dog meet is a good sign, they want to make sure your dog won't tear up the house so I guess it means they could see you living there

that's exciting saskia!
I travel out to my parents farm to see my horse such is 12 ks outta town, but they are selling the farm so I have to find a new place for my horse fast! Which is proving to be very difficult. :(

And yes still want to do equine science or something simullar. But I plan on doing my cert III and maybe a diploma first. :)

I'm lucky enough to be able to keep my horses at my parents' farm,which also happens to be where I live. So my girls are all of 400 yards away from my front door. :)

He's currently 7000 miles away ;)

But when I was there, 40-45 minutes.

Once he was only 10 mins from my house. I went there a lot!

Well I'm lucky enough that Lizzy is about 5 miles from me. So 10 min drive max. I was out to the barn 3 times today. I love living so close.

Lizzy also did so good today. She tried bolting on the same stretch of highway she bolted on last time but I was able to get her back down to a slow controlled canter. She has gotten so much better in the last few days.

I contacted the local Pony Club to see if they know of anywhere closer but they haven't got back to me.

My worry is that a 30 minute drive (probably 40 - 50 minute in bad weather or traffic, neither of which is uncommon) is going to be too much when I get a part-time job to go everyday. Do you think she would be okay if I went maybe every second day or even third, sometimes? Someone checks the horses daily, but they don't do anything with them.
