I wouldn't use Oregon as your location then because we do have some plenty of western riders here who do a lot of trail riding and stuff. But a lot of them ride English, too. Still, if that's what you're going for in your story, I don't think it would work so well... :)

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,
Northern Va
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.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

1.What state? SE PA.
2.Majority of people Western/English? My specific area is about an even split. Move 10 mins South to Chester county, and it's mainly English.
3.Most common breed? Quarter Horse, Thoroughbred, Warmblood.
4.Average boarding price? 250 would be about the cheapest, up to $1500+. My average is $300-400, but I am not a serious rider. The overall average is probably the 600-700 range.
5.Most common Discipline? Least seen? Most common, hunters. Least common working horses (cattle etc)

I know of a few barns that focus on western riding but they're pretty far out from where I am. This has just been my personal experience though. I'm sure it varies a lot....
Yep. We mostly hang around people who do the same type of riding we do. So if jumping is your thing you'll mostly see and know English riders using jumping horses. If rodeo is your thing you'll mainly see QH chasing cows. Showing is usually broke down by breeds too but likely will have English/western classes. I would say trail riding is where you'll see the most hodge podge of horses but even then you'll likely find a divide between gaited and non gaited riders.

I don't ride English though... my horse and I are into reining and stuff like that but it doesn't seem like there are a lot of people here who do that. I wish there were more people like me but oh well..

Don't know where you're boarding and don't want to know but you'll likely find more like minded people the further you get away from Portland. Of course the downsize to that is you're stable is further away...
