Smile Best Place For Horses?

Not sure if this is where I should be posting this.

I live in Montana right now, but I grew up on the east coast and spent awhile in NZ (I have a dual citizenship.) I am getting sick of the cold and having to drive an hour to get to the nearest town.

I am supposed to transfer an hour from here for an Equine Studies school in the fall, but I was wondering if you could live anywhere with your horses, where would it be?

I want to be by the water and leafy trees. These are my requirements =P

Where is the best place in your opinion to own horses at?

I love my home of Kentucky, my roots are buried here. It gets plenty of rain most of the time, half the state in in timber. Plus it has mild temps year round.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

I love right where I'm at. I love that we get snow in the winter, lots of sunshine in the summer and tons of great places to ride. I can race thru an open field, cross a river or climb a moutian all in one day. Hay and grain is plenty and the grass is some of the best in Canada.

Never been to Canada but I have always wanted to. I always thought it was really cold though. I am a wimp when it comes to the cold...

We like it here in North Carolina, but land prices are getting out of this world.

Well I have to say that I love Ohio, but it's not really my *ideal* horse place, only because of the winters here and the SNOW and wet crappy conditions practically half the year! :-p

I would love it if I could be by a warm beach area with my horses! Well... I don't have horses yet, but when I do!

The best thing for a horse is being outside. The things that prevent this are extreme temperatures, wet ground and lack of land. Anywhere that doesn't have these three things is where I'd have my horse.

You know I had to make this decision as well? :)

I really contemplated the fact of living in a colder place, as to a warmer place.. Being so close to you, I can relate! I lucked out with the benefit of having lived in a tons of places, and even all over the world (thanks to uncle sam). And you know.. I am going to stay where I am at!

Its either the cold, or bugs, or heat, city or rural.. I guess you would have to make yourself a top 10 list of what you want, and what you dont like.. Then decide!

Mine was the bugs and heat! LOL!

Ireland! or Anglesey (beach & hills) but Cheshire grass is the best

A good horse can never be a bad colour...
