Hi all!

I'm looking to find some small cities or large towns that are horse friendly. What I mean by that is that there is affordable (300 a month or less for self-care) boarding, trails etc?

Thanks!

Aiken SC is a big horse town. That's all I know though. There is a big wooded park in the city where people ride their horses.

There is a horse race there every spring.

Some people play polo on a field in town as well.

Albuquerque. Some very pricy neighborhoods with horses right in town (Los Ranchos, Corrales, the North Valley area), or less pricy a bit further out (East Mountains towns, Los Luna's, Belen).

I would say Ocala, FL, but I don't know how affordable it is to board there.

I agree regarding Ocala and it certainly has the best weather of the other choices.

I'm in Raleigh, NC and there are fantastic trails (both in public parks like Umstead, and fairly close horse only trails/parks in Southern Pines) and the cost of boarding is around 300-400 for full board if you don't mind driving about 30 minutes out. Not sure about self care. If you lived in one of the smaller surrounding, more rural cities, like Pittsboro, Apex, or Mebane, boarding would be a little less, still near trails, and a 10-15 minute drive most likely. Tons of horse people out here!
