1 hour, but it worth it. Unfortunately all good instructors giving privates in my discipline are far away. I WISH it would be 5 miles away!

For my main coach, 15min. My instructor is 2hrs. My protocol coach is 3 hours. And I'm travelling 9 hours to get coaching next week. We generally get coaches to come to us every few months. Tha majority drive 9 hours to the pony club grounds and then we travel the extra 2 hours.
When we got Brett Parbery out, he travelled like a 3 hour flight which is several days in the car. It was SO worth it.
All part of living in a hole in the middle of nowhere. Thank god I found my new coach so it's not a 2 hour drive every two weeks.

...Every rider has that one horse that changes everything about them...

I don't take lessons currently, but the farthest I've had to go for lessons was about a 15 min drive.

5 minutes. Right down the road. =D

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

Less than a mile, about 2 minutes away. I am not currently taking lessons though, this was where I used to take lessons.

I drive about an hour and a half each direction twice a week. Totally worth it.

Holy Cow you guys, I could never imagine traveling more than 45 minutes for lessons!

I drive 15 minutes for my lessons, and my horse is kept there as well.
