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 !!!

About a minute if I run my little 3 horse barn is down the street and around the corner (its at my grandparents house). And since I kinda feed, hay,water and turnout the horses im there atleast 3 times a day . . . 4 if I ride that day.

Mmm...I guess 15 minutes from work, 20 from home. Usually go every day straight from work.

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 don't 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 don't 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.

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

At present..... I am about 5 hours car drive away or about 7 hours bus drive away... depends what type of transport I use.

Im at uni so only see my boys for a couple weeks every 2 months when I go back home for holidays.

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