    Default Foxhunter ISO Housing near Philly

    Hi all,
    I'm a first-timer here, so my apologies if I'm mucking things up, but I'm (desperately) looking for housing within 30 miles of NE Philadelphia. I'm not terribly picky about PA/NJ/DE, providing there's a roof over my head and I can get to work in less than an hour. Am hoping to shop around and join a local hunt in 2013.
    My ideal situation would be a barn apartment (or something similar—cottage, hunt box) where I could exchange some horse/farm care, farmsitting duties, etc. for rent reduction.

    About me:
    Young, single professional (female).
    Very neat and organized.
    Lots of experience with horses, dogs, and farm/housesitting.
    Excellent references upon request.
    I have 1 very well-behaved medium-sized dog, and 1 Thoroughbred gelding.

    Need to move in February 1. In case I can't find this dream situation ASAP, I am also looking for a short-term rental (1-2 months) to help in the relocation process.
    Thanks in advance!

    Admittedly I don't know my Philadelphia geography too well, but you can find a few results on the Philly CL site.

    Just type in "horse", "horses", "farm", "barn" etc in the housing section.

    A few results:

    Thanks for your reply.
    I've been trolling CL for a while, and have come up with some possibilities, but was hoping to raise some other, more horse-y options here. (without much luck so far!)
    Cheers!

    I know the Horse of DelVal has rentals in it, you can look in there. As well as check out any tack shops in the area.
