    Default Affordable, horsey place south east, east coast?

    If, say, my job was location independent, and I'm ready for a change of scenery, but I don't make very much, but want to be in a more horsey area...where would you move?

    I want my horse to have pasture turnout, if not live out on pasture. Eventing-focussed area would be lovely (eventing barn a plus-plus). Affordable housing, but my personal housing standards are pretty low haha. I don't need to be in a city, but not totally out in the boonies.

    Basically, a fairy-fanstasy land of ponies. Does it exist??

    Like, not Manhattan/Chicago/California type costs (from what I hear).

    I guess affordable would be average cost of living/cost of horse owner ship.

    I don't think any of those places I listed begin to compare with the housing costs of Manhattan/Chicago/CA, so you should be good. NC is beautiful. FL is very hot during the summer. GA and SC would be somewhat of a happy medium.
