    Canada is a great place but here in BC, although the best province, it has a price tag to go with it. BC = Bring Cash!

    Hi everyone thanks for all the lovely replies and even a pic.
    I would be moving over with my family so moving to a job with accommodation would probably not be possible. I think you are right that it is best to move first then look for a equestrian property to rent. Defiantly has to be to rent.
    What is the horse market like there. What sort of price for dressage horse/war blood type. I've done a little online searching but just so much stuff blew my mind a little lol.
    Now I have areas to search though so thanks

    I lived in Alberta for a year, while it was lovely, most of Canada is, I really missed the ocean. One thing I really did enjoy was those Chinook winds that blew in and gave you a spring day in the middle of winter!

    Price of horses I think really depends on what province you end up. I think in Ontario and BC you'll find a good price for a good Dressage horse. Alberta is more western. Nothing much happens in either Saskatchewan or Manitoba. LOL

    Yeah, that will get someone.
    Me? I like my mountains. I don't worry about floods, tsunamis, hurricanes, etc. LOL
    Alberta is nice and safe for me. Or I'm just a chicken.

    I find Alberta is very Western-oriented. I'm in the 'horse capital of BC' and in the summer it seems like there's something happening every single weekend / sometimes during the weekday for English disciplines. There are lots of shows / clinics through the fall and winter, etc. Definitely more English riding on the mainland.

    I would dare to say that Alberta is more english oriented!
    We have Spruce Meadows heren along with many other "AA" rated venues (Rocky Mountain Show Jumping, Northlands, etc) and there about 45 english barns right around where I live (Calgary area).
    You will find here that the horse market is quite pricey though - especially for those warmblood types. I'm in hunter land so the horses I see are on average quite expensive.

    I gotta say, if you can find a way into Canada, do it.
