What area of Fort Worth are you moving to....north, south, etc.? There are areas with acreage for horses, price would depend on house, size of acreage and location. Lands of Texas is a really good site to check out real estate. You might want to check it out, that way you can enter size acreage you want, price range, county and they have listings from hundreds of real estate companies. Check it out.

will pm an mls site that lets you check listings that allow horses

all depends on where you are working IMO since you don't want to live in weatherford and work in Irving

I'm not familiar with the area, work is going to be at the FAA building at 2601 Meacham Blvd. Just off the 35W?

google the town--I think that might be in FTW city limits but you can see towns around it
check out city data info about the towns
most towns in DFW metroplex do not have mini-ranches now except in a few locations--Keller has some--but they are usually pretty expensive because land is expensive
decent price range usually means less rather than more expensive--but price is relative--what works for some people is too expensive for others--
and some people think you get a good deal just with an avg house here compared to places in CA or back east...

there are some places west of 377 off Golden Triangle that have some half-acre or acre places if they are for sale
might try around Azle/Eagle Mtn Lake
Justin Rhome Argyle are towns north on I-35 toward Denton that have areas allowing horses
just depends on your budget--
that is why I sent the MLS--check a map--search for towns in area you are working--click on the price range and check for horses and see what comes up...

Tarrant county requires you to have at least 1/2 an acre of land per horse. I will double check in the morning.

What price point are you wanting to stay within and what are your housing needs, that would help to direct you to areas.

The further your are willing to drive the more you will get for your money.
on Highway 287 north there are some better deals than I-35 north. The main problem is it can get pretty rocky in some of those areas. South you get in to black land but again you have to go out further for the better prices.

In your price range, there are several homes on the market with good acreage. 1+ acre in Keller, being an expensive area, the homes are going to be older if that doesn't matter to you but the location is highly desirable. There are a couple in North Richland Hills(NRH) and Richland Hills. Within the city of Fort Worth, look at an area called Silver Ridge Estates off Jacksborough highway aka 199. There are some beautiful homes with wooded lots. Then there is Haslet which is a great equestrian area with newer homes on acreage (several to choose from here). Fossil Creek Estates close to there (but city of Fort Worth) is another great area with homes built in the late 90s.

These are all areas within a 30 minute commute or less of Meacham and I35E.

There is a neat neighborhood off of Bonds Ranch Road near Haslet/Saginaw/Fort Worth (I'm not exactly sure which city this is). I don't know much about that particular neighborhood, but we drive by there when visiting family. The houses look beautiful, and have large lots...and, are newer homes. All of the homes we see off the road have horses/stables. I don't think the commute would be too bad.
