Am not even close to local to you, but it is available, it just depends on how much you can spend. You live in a part of the country where land is a premium, so you will pay for what you want, or you will travel.

Yep, near big urban areas like that you tend to have to go pretty far or pay a high premium to get pasture board, and it may still be more crowded/smaller than ideal. I looked briefly into what it would take to have a horse in the SF Bay area, and it was a real eye opener

My horses go in during the day, their choice, and out at night. In the winter they'll have nothing to do with the barn. Oftentimes in winter the night weather is better than during the day as the wind usually dies down.

In California , where land is very costly, and you get a 12 x 30 pen, it is up to you to take the horse out, round pen it, exercise it, etc. I would not pasture board anyones horse due to the liability issues. TO many people in CA sue over the slightest thing, and Insurance is very costly. I would Never turn any ones horses out. There is no Equine Liabilty law that covers property owners as in other states.

Thats why I rented a place w some land. Pasture isnt as big as id like....and its 100 percent dirt, no grazing....but better than a paddock.

You may find a place around here with pasture board, but it might be a bit of a chore!
You're in CA lol everythings 100% dirt

Depends on what part of Cali. I have ten acres and 7 acres is in pasture.
SO Cali, you can find some pastures, Tehachapi areas have pasture, Some Coastal areas have pastures, Fresno, Tulare Modoc etc have Pastures.
Bigger more urban areas, not so much pasture. The Desert areas , well those are more sand than dirt.
