Hello, I am researching relocation to the general Albuquerque area with horses, dog, and cats.

Asked by A. Feary, Austin, TX Sun Jul 27, 2008

Besides the Chamber of Commerce, do you have recommendations for networking sources? This will be a major move requiring a new job (Environmental Health & Safety, Quality Assurance, and Project Management experience), as well as a place for the critters and me. Thank you for any advice. A. Feary

Have you concidered Corrales?
It is the best of both worlds! I have an.98 Corrales acre, my home is nice sized, 2835 sq ft, and almost 1/4 of the lot is ready for horses. Depending on how many horses, and how much you like the comfort of rual living, and just being 10 minutes from all shopping! Of course the area demands a bit of life style changes...enjoying your home is a must, and taking time to entertain friends, is calling to you, if you move here. Some people can not committe to comfort, relaxation, and a bueatiful home. But if you are strong, call I 'll give you a the 10cent ture./ Denise 106 Watson ct, Corrales NM 87048

I am selling a beautiful home in the North Albuquerque Acres area that is zoned for horses. We also live on an acre with a dog-door access. The equestrian center is down the street for riding and our next door neighbor has two horses & teaches riding on the weekends. It is a large house(4150 sf) & is a French Country style with a metal roof ( northern NM). The schools here are the #1 in the city. If you are interested, you can e-mail me at: goodman737@aol.com & I will send you some pictures.

There are many different areas that are horse and dog friendly. Albuquerque has limits on animals and the property has to be zoned for Horses, not as many places to ride as there were years ago. Check with the Bosque Farms Rodeo Association. It is a local group and they have events most of the time. Bosque Farms is about 15 minutes south of the airport with probably one of the highest horse population around. East Mountain area (about 25 minutes from town) and Los Lunas (also about 25 minutes from Albuquerque) are a little bit further but worth it , if having a nice horse property without paying big money for the land is what you want.

I am sure your biggest concern beyond getting the right situation for your family is the horses you will be bringing. You may wish to contact either the New Mexico Horseman's Association or the New Mexico Quarter Horse Association for general advice.
If you plan to explore housing that permits horses on site, then close in locations would be Corrales or the North Valley, while the East Mountain area or Los Lunas/Belen are more distant alternatives.
