    Thanks for the links, I will be showing them to Mom as soon as she is back inside.

    Yeah I know what you mean about being millionaires, we found the perfect place in 'the meadows' I do believe, and everything there is big $$$(because its right on the track and xc course, litterally), but it was a cute little farm house with beautiful property and a polo barn w/ loft and when we saw that the price was only $1800 a mo. Jaws dropped! Unfortunatly someone snatched it up before us.

    The property doesnt have to be set up for horses per se, it just has to be big enough for them. We can work lol

    Grr. Why can't they have house browsing websites set up like Equine.com?
    I don't know what city I want to live in, and really don't care. I just need someplace within X amount of miles from DC!

    The property taxes are also nothing compared to places north. I pay less than $600 a year in taxes for my property.

    As far as traffic, if I have to sit in traffic for more than 5 minutes, it's an extreme rarity.

    I love this area. Yeah, it's a little backwards and the politicians are just as corrupt as those in D.C., but it's beautiful, inexpensive, and livestock friendly.

    Yikes! I am sooooo envious...and a little depressed that I looked at the price of that place and thought "seems right!" >.< I need to pick a new career and get out of this area!

    I'm also depressed because this morning I took the GW parkway for a change, and when I was mere minutes away from my office, I took a wrong turn and ended up having to go through downtown. GRRRR

    GrayRay, if you haven't already, look on Virginia Equestrian.com. There's a section in the classified for just horse properties.

    Dont worry, mom can never remember wich GW she needs to be on lol. The roads are so stupid here... If every road is going to be George Washington Something or Other, they atleast need to properly mark them.

    No I hadnt looked there yet, Thanks!
    I was mostly looking at sites like Rent.com, and all the others on the first google page >.<

    If you guys can drive down to Spotsy, there's a cute place on Brock Rd. It's between Courthouse Rd and Orange Plank Rd. I very rarely drive by, but my friend told me that it has a sign out front "for rent or sale" by the owners (no listing with realtors). I think it has a 3 or 6 stall barn *not quite sure* and a paddock area. My hubby used to make the commute everyday to Alexandria, then on to DC for the bulk of his work, until they moved his office to Woodbridge. If I can get by there, I'll get you the number.

    Yeah I know what you mean. Me and my sisters go on trail rides by oursleves because in the middle of Amish land, noone believes in riding for fun.

    These are in Falmouth. The commute from there is around an hour... but train station is close by...

    This looks like a house that still needs to be built but it's in a good location. How much land do you need? The further north you go the more expensive it's going tot get...

    Not crazy about the red but the yard and the inside are pretty

    That's a couple anyway. If you look towards stafford, that would put you at a 45 minute commute with tons of park-n-rides/van pools/train station etc. Aquia Harbor is a gated community with a stables you could look into....
