Where to Move? Good Horsey Locations?
I have been out of the USA for awhile and am now ready to return. I am taking early retirement, I am almost 45, and will not have a great deal of money, but have decided the trade off of not working is worth it. I want to enjoy my life while still young and healthy enough to do so.
I will be arriving in the USA horseless but plan buying a new horse and spending a lot of my free time riding so one of the requirements is a good location for riding. Trail riding specifically. I don't like cold weather, so anywhere that there is lots of snow is out. Humidity? Don't care for it much!
1) I need somewhere inexpensive. I plan to rent, not buy, and board my horse
2) I want warm, dry weather.
3) I would like to be in an area where I can leave the stable and trail ride for hours, I don't care at all for riding in the ring.
Tell me where I should concentrate on researching. Due to my previous career, I have LOTS of airline miles and can fly to several different locations just to get a feel for the area before I have to decide.
