My life is too compactly packed already with life, dogs, house, husband and child commitments to even consider that length of drive.
I am currently using an instructor who comes to the arena 10 minutes down the road.
When Ukon was at a trainers for 8 weeks, she was 50 minutes drive away. I managed 4 visits there, but that was only achievable for me because I knew it was a temporary thing.
In July of next year I am planning on driving 5 hours to a weekend long sidesaddle clinic. But that's as much fun for me as training for the horse :)
Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.
