3.Most common breed? Quarter Horse, Tennessee Walker, Thoroughbred
4.Average boarding price? 250-300 for a nice place
5.Most common Discipline? Least seen? Trail riding is the most common in my area, and eventing the least common. But more South there is a lot of hunter/jumper
Not too sure where exactly "northwest? Va would be-maybe Winchester area? But I an in Nova Leesburg, to be exact (at least in the winter) and have to drive nearly to Winchester to find a place that will let me even RIDE western without looking at me like I am from an alien planet. So, Generally,
ENGLISH-big time. From eventers to dressage to hoity toity field hunters in Middleburg.
Mostly Warmbloods and TB's. An occassional "american WB" (they would never think of calling it a draft cross)
Avg boarding-with indoor $750+
I also live in central NY part of the year-different world, but still primarily English. More western riders, it is more accepted, and more trail riders. Board runs about $500 with an indoor. I pat $275+ tax for no indoor on 300 acres. Yes, I am blessed.
