Lol I visited California a few years back in the winter and absolutely loved it. It doesn't feel "big" to a small-town country girl like me and it's so beautiful...I guess maybe I should look there, huh?
I have family that lives in NorCal up by the OR border close to I5. They get snow, cold weather and usually a week a two of 0* or below. But the summers are awesome! However there isn't a whole lot going on as far as english riding activities.
I spent some time in the Bay area. A ton of equestrians, but very expensive.
I like the Sacramento and San Joqeuin(sp) Valleys. Or the mountains east. Fairly affordable in comparison to the Bay area/Central/South Coast. There are always horseshows somewhere close. And it is not too far of a drive out to the coast or south to shows. And plenty of little towns to choose from.
I also agree with caco, Reno, Fallon or Yerrington is nice too.
