Default Best place for raising horses in Idaho

Greetings all! Just discovered this site and all the wonderfully helpful posts about living in Idaho. I have a few questions STILL haven't found the answers to and hoping to get some sound responses. 1) wanting to relocate from North Florida to be closer to daughter and grandchildren 2) have too many horses that I can't bear of selling (many bred and raised from foals )3) where are the best " horse friendly " places. 4) where are the best Real Estate ads/links? Having a hard time finding anything under $500,000 with even the smallest amount of land ( under 20 acres ) with home and barn. I guess I'm a bit shocked at the land prices in Idaho vs. Florida where it sure buys more. Thanks, Yvonne

Where do your Children & Grand Children live?
Are you horses bred to handle cold weather?
I live in North Idaho and there are lots of places to raise horses. I live in the city of Dalton Gardens which is sandwiched between Coeur d'Alene and Hayden Lake and all of the lots here are at least a acre. Our neighbors have Horses, cattle & Donkeys.

You can go north from here to Rathdrum and there are a lot of 5 acre properties that are reasonably priced.
You can find some
North Idaho Real Estate links at Buster & Boo Boo's Website - North Idaho Real Estate Links (http://traviscallahan.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=345&Item id=36 - broken link)

We have been really happy with our real estate agent, Tom Fisher of Century 21 his number is 208-660-9252. He was born and raised here and is very knowledgeable.

In the Sandpoint area, both Sagle (south of town) and Selle (north of town off 95) are very horse-oriented. The further you go north, toward Naples and Bonner's Ferry, the cheaper the land too.

Default Thanks to all who responded

Greetings! Sorry it's taken so long to reply. Horses sure can keep you busy I wanted to thank everyone who responded.


IdahoEagle: daughter and grandchildre live in Boise. It would be nice to be within an hour in any direction from them. The link for Buster and Boo Boo's doesn't work
Here are my needs and wants: 10-20 tillable acres for pasture weather allowing. Comfortable home with out buildings, barn and garage. I expect to have about the same number of horses come with me. TEMPERATE climate = small amount of snow. I'm a native Floridan!!! Must admit I hate COLD!!!! The biggest desire is to be near family.
What areas should I consider to meet my needs? Thanks, Yvonne

Yvonne,

With that statement alone, I must say that while Idaho is a wonderful place, you will absolutely not like living here from Thanksgiving to St Paddy's Day. Maybe start the life of a snow bird wintering in Phoenix?

Hey, I see this post is a few months old, but I would like to know more about living in Florida!! I am terrified of hurricanes and such, but I AM NOT enjoying this snow in Rocky Mountain region of Bozeman, MT!! My youngest child will finish school in 2011, and then I will definitely re-locate!! I love sunshine, but not so hot you have to ride at 4 am in the summer!!! Am looking for some input as to the BEST climate to enjoy my horses!! Would love to find a nice place with a climate somewhere between Seattle's (sometimes too wet and gloomy)area and Bozeman's (too hot in summer, too cold/snowy in winter!) Yes, a perfect world would be appreciated!

We are in the Boise area Eagle very expensive for horse property It might help to know what the price range you will be able to afford.
Ex: 500,000 up will get you 2-3 acres in eagle price may have come down some not sure possibly up to 5 acres but it will need work.
You have outer lying areas such as Emmett, Payette, Fruitland, which are all between Eagle and Ontario, Oregon nice traveling distance to Eagle.
I would stay away from Star, Middleton unless you are on the Emmett side as traffic into town is unbearable. Feel free to pm me if you like.
There is also out the other end of the valley Boise to Mt. Home property in Mt home is still affordable I hear it is about 40 minutes out of Boise.

Default I'm also looking for horse country !

Hi!

We have three horses and two dogs, and the two of us people would love the country area of about 3-5 acres. Not to hot in the summer, no kids, no jobs needed. Not much income on disability, so costs would have to be low.

Thank You for any responses...

Dee
