If you could live any of these places...
As a hunter/jumper person, where would that be and why? I am in Ocala (which is heaven!), but I am seriously considering going back to school for another degree (eek! I'm becoming my mother...but I have a few more degrees to go if I want to catch up to her 5 masters and her PhD!) and while UF (Gainesville) is my very first choice and USF (Tampa) is close behind, I am also very interested in:
-UCSF (San Francisco)
-UNC (Chapel Hill)
-Texas A&M (College Station)
I may also apply to a few places in Boston, but I have a second home there and know more about the area (and the cost of horse keeping!) than I actually care to :lol:
So out of that list (and ignoring the two schools in Florida as my horses would stay on my farm), which are the most horse-friendly? The least? Average cost of full-care board at a training facility? Nearest LBNTs or BNTs? I have an A/O hunter and an Adult Eq. horse that will most likely come with me and while I don't expect to show too often, I want the option to be there if possible. I'd love the barn to be within an hour of the city and I'd like to live somewhere in between (I'll be bringing my two dogs, two cats, and my house pig with me, so city living probably isn't for us!). If worse comes to worst, my cats and pig can stay in Florida on my farm with my manager (my parents are also building right next door), but the horses are a must.
Thanks for the input!
