Most recommend you to board in a stall only, because Florida can get scorching hot in the summer for horses if they just stay outside.. unless the place has a nice big run in shed/shelter.
Hay is expensive in Florida.. so try to get a boarding place that feeds your horse for you.
And I'd think all you would have to worry about rather than sand colic, is bugs, gators, and fungus growth.. I've never lived down in Florida, but I have been there enough to know how the stable life is different from ohios. =]
Really, you are getting a better deal moving to Florida! Lots of shows, warm weather, being able to ride in the winter, being able to ride on the beach! Having the best vets available, HUGE stables, and HUGE breeding programs. And also, since there are so many people coming and going in the state, there will always be many many horses for sale and auctions.
If it doesn't challenge you, It won't change you.
