You have to have a taste for cold weather and rural living in Vermont. Riding is a 3 season sport for many horse folks here. The largest cities, all 3 of them, aren't even properly cities by most urban standards. It's also an eccentric, politically progressive state.
If you live on either the eastern or western border you have closer access to NH and NY, both offer much more in the way of conventional shopping opportunities.
It's horsey and beautiful, everything is 30 minutes away unless you live in town, the taxes are high, housing and land are expensive, and I wouldn't live anywhere else in the world.

Can you give me an idea of what town we should look into? I am hoping to find somewhere with lots of trails!!
Thank you! DP
A friend of mine lives in Maine. It's beautiful there but she has a lot of problems finding in state specialists capable of caring for her son who has multiple disabilities.

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?

I'm in Connecticut. It's surprisingly loaded with trails. I keep my horse in Durham which is in the middle of the state. The prices vary a lot from town to town and it can get VERY pricey. Check around before you decide on a town. Where my horse is, it's 150 miles to Boston or NYC, and fairly short trips to New Haven, Hartford and Providence. I love this state, but a lot of people find it overpriced and crowded. Winters can be a bear if you don't like cold.

I live in Maryland and I think it's nice. One town you could look into is Davidsonville. There are lots of farms there, although I'm not sure about the trails but you would be close to Annapolis and there's good shopping and things there.
