I used to have to go half an hour to the barn. If I get lucky, I'll be able to ride at a barn near my house, which is a half hour bike ride.

I guess I am really lucky! our horses are on our property and only about a 15 second walk from our backdoor :-D less from our front door !!!

Pokey (my bay mare) is about 10-15 minutes away. My friend is keeping her at her place.

Jack (my pinto) is 5 minutes away! The boarding stable is right around the corner from my house. I'm usually there 5 times a week.

Same her I'm about 15 minutes away by car from my horse but I'm only 14 so I dont get to see him as much in the summer because my mom works all day, so I usually get out two or three times a week, but since I dont see hime as much when I do I make the best of the time I have, so I ride and groom and do some work with trailer loading and he is doing good and staying in shape, so I think as long as you are making and honest effort to see your horse its all worth it.

The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire

About 200 feet Home horsekeeping has its downside. You can't go anywhere without finding someone to feed/water them while your gone. Its a 24/7 365 days of the year responsibility when you are the main caregiver.
Just wanted to throw that out there so all you folks who have to drive a ways to see your horses don't feel so bad

Our kids are 8 miles away. I wish I could have them in my backyard but I guess this is good for now.
