Toward Lakeland I'd guess..... Bartow maybe???

Haven't been in that area in 10 years, it may not be as rural as it used to be.

Wedgefield is an area about 10 miles east of Orlando. Lots of people have horses there. The land is parceled out between 1-5 acres.

You may also want to try areas around Ocala that are still close to Orlando and are known for horse culture and semirural living.

It would be worth the drive to live in a rural area regardless of how long it took. I'm not fond of city living at all. Of course, gas prices have to be considered.

It's hard to pinpoint great rural areas online. Would you have the opportunity to come down for a week and then take drives out from the point of employment until you run across what you are looking for? There are some great areas surrounding Orlando.
