Ok, my company has offices in Austin and DFW and after considering Austin my horse contacts there told me that I'd be much better off heading to the DFW area instead because the Austin area is a wasteland when it comes to horse activities. Can anyone tell me what horse friendly areas might be the best to look into - a place that also has a great high school. This one might be a toughy because we're coming from one of the highest rated school districts in the country.

I'm also a Realtor so it needs to be an area where houses actually sell or close to areas where houses actually sell!

Thanks for any information

Well...I just went to the High School Rodeo over in Fort Worth (also check out that side of the forum) at the Stockyards. It was the area finals and it was amazing to see all these kids. There are also roping events over at Wendy Ryon arena in Saginaw which from my understanding (which is kinda slim admitedly) has quite a few weekly high school events.

There are a lot of really nice horse properties north of Fort Worth as well (Roanoke, Fort Worth, parts of Keller, Haslet).

This is definately a buyers market. Houses are selling, but its like everywhere, it has to be priced right for what you get.

Hope this helps!

You might want to hit greatschools.org for high school information. Carroll ISD has a great high school, Northwest ISD as well as Keller High School in Keller ISD.

Don't know what area of DFW you'll be working, but Aubrey is a great area for horses. Plenty of land and extremely horse friendly. Definitely more ranches than anywhere else around.The high school is small, but well rated. Very friendly area.

We go to a vet in Mesquite that is across the road from a horse type thing. Too bad Willow Bend is no longer there.

Default horse town

Flower Mound is a horse town and has very good high schools. Produces more merit scholars than the schools in Fairfax County, Va where I used to live. My property backs onto horse pasture. The neighborhoods: Bridlewood, Saddle Oaks...you get the idea.
