Eventing scenes across the country...
DH and I were talking about possible future moves, especially if he gets out of the military. We are hoping he doesn't do that, but we realize that some (most) things are out of our control in regards to that.
We are both from the Midwest, and I have no desire to live anywhere near where I grew up. Loved it, but there is *nothing* there as far as jobs, and eventing is unheard of. Yikes. He wouldn't mind moving back there, but I would only consider living near a major city such as Des Moines or St. Louis. Chicago is out of the question.
I LOVE the East Coast, but he despises it. He really likes Texas, and I'm not a fan. Neither of us care much for extreme cold 8 months out of the year or humidity. I would love love LOVE to stay here in SoCal, but realistically that will be unlikely. Plus we would like to be a little closer to family (preferably a couple states away from my in-laws, though).
If you were looking at a move like this, where would you want to end up? What venues would you like to be close(ish) to? I am putting my foot down when it comes to having access to eventing. It's what I love and I hope to make it my business one day, so not living anywhere near an eventing scene is not acceptable. :lol:
