Smile Chicago Area: Best Boarding?

I currently shareboard two horses at one barn outside Chicago. However, my barn is expensive and just downright annoying. They say they clean the horses' buckets daily, and clean out stalls 2x and day, and they don't. They say they feed the horses 3x per day, they get only one feeding. You want your horse given meds? The barn says they'll do it, but then they don't. Basically they overpay us for nothing.

So, some of my friends and I want to move our horses to another barn. One where it's not giant and crowded, but also not overpriced. We're younger, so not really snooty. We all have semi-show horses, but not saddlebreds. Where there's grass turnout and you get what you pay for.

Thank you!!! We have a couple in mind, but I wanted to get some opinions.

Where are you located? I'm near south bend, Indiana. I can be to Chicago in an hour. Depending on your location, if you are in the suburbs, you could go a lil further into the country. Wether towards Rockford or towards NWI. Or south. I've noticed the barns that I've seen in the suburbs look to be geared more so towards the folks from downtown.

That may sound confusing, so my version.

Get outta the sub division and get on a farm.

And I mean absolutely no disrespect. But I know the area.

Lots of boarding facilities in Hickory Hills off Kean Ave. Right by forest preserve. Some in La Grange, Orland Park, Tinley and etc suburbs of Chicagoland but close enough to downtown.
