We re moving from the Northeast (finally! and have the option of either the Dallas area, or southern Ocala (North Orlando). I have 10 horses (mostly youngsters)-we want at least 10 acres (preferably mostly pasture), a horse friendly climate (little to no snow), reasonable real estate (under 500k for 10+ acres 2000sf+ house).
We would like an area that is horse friendly. I have ridden dressage, hunter, western-but mainly raise train youngsters now. We also love to trail ride.
Any input would be greatly appreciated!
I have been to Ocala and it's definitely a horse mecca. It's mostly eventing/dressage/jumpers. Which is great for me It's a great horse place, but nothing else going on down there besides horses. Just to keep that in mind...
