New Orleans is still on the top of my list. I feel like I probably have 'found' my new place to live. I'm glad to get so much confirmation of my decision!

My top choice for you would be Salt Lake City. Though they get some snow, it melts pretty fast and winters tend to be sunny. It's surprisingly liberal, they have the lowest unemployment in the nation, and a phenomenal library system. There's also lots of ranch country in the area for raising a horse. Though, on the down side, it's not the most diverse city in the world, and it's rather isolated.

Why don't you like Cleveland? If it's just because of the weather, St. Louis might be a warmer, less snowy alternative (18 inches compared to Cleveland's 70). It's terms of parks, zoos, conservatories, and cost of living, St. Louis is great. I imagine that there's cheap places to keep a horses nearby, as it's surrounded by farms and prairie. Though, much like Cleveland, it could be a little rough around the edges.

Providence, Rhode Island could work too. It's the least snowy city and least expensive city in New England. Brown University attracts a lot of culture and diversity. Though, I'm not sure how expensive it is to keep a horse nearby, given real estate prices out East.

People rave about Nashville and the North Carolina cities, but they seem to be too spread out, too sprawling, too car-dependent, and too suburban for my taste. But, not everyone is like me. Perhaps they could work well for you.
