I currently live in Maine, and have been looking to move out west for the past few years. Had made plans to move to Kansas last year, but that fell through due to family difficulties. I am still interested in moving, mid-west or further. Going to put my house up for sale again, and trying to get down on horses. Looking for a horse-friendly state, that is not overly expensive to live in. Looked into Texas, but couldn't afford to buy there. Would like to get out of maine, as it really isn't a horse friendly state, taxes are rediculous, people are horrible and nasty, and just plain don't like it here. Just looking for some good ideas, or opinions. I work at both a hospital and horse farm, so I would like to continue at either one of those. Looking for places that might happen to have houses with land for under 100,000. (keeping fingers crossed lol)
Also, for anyone that moved a long distance with horses, what's the best way to do it, with the least amount of stress on the horses. I imagine stopping at horse type hotels, etc. Just looking for any good ideas, or thoughts. Anything anyone might have would be great.
