boarding in IL

I need to find a place to board my horse. I live in Joliet, IL, but might be moving. Need to find a stable some where near Joliet will to go 50 mile radius.

Take a look at horsetradin.com or even on craigslist if you haven't already. It's a start.

Gladstone Ridge in Wheaton or Harmony Hills, not sure what city but it's in the suburbs. I live in Illinois too...what discipline and what rate are you looking for?

Hmmm...it's pretty hard to find stuff for that price around here, I live a little bit more north and the cheapest I could find was $425. There is a place called Galusha Farms that is right by the forest preserve, but I have not heard good things about it :/

It is A Ranch 394 and I looked it up. They have pony rides, horse rides, and rental horses, but there wasn't anything about boarding. Thank you though.

I'm not sure how far from you...

My cousin boards out of Collison, IL. For $185/mo, full board. Will have to find his number again if you want it. He is stationed across from Middlefork's equestrian trails (Circle L Stables).

I also work in a boarding stable in Danville, IL. There are 10 or so very nice, horse-safe stalls. Hay provided; great grass hay. Indoor riding arena & daily turn-out. Stalls mucked daily, horses fed 2x daily. Also not far from Middlefork; nearer to Kenekuk & Kickapoo.

With your own grain, $250/mo. $300/mo if the barn provides grain. Also includes anytime use of the riding arena.

Can get either number easily if you're interested. I have the number for "my" stable (not my cousin's) on-hand.

I would love to talk to your cousin. We could afford 185.00. Thank you so very much.
