On the hunt for a new boarding barn

I reside in Andalusia IL. I am on the hunt for a boarding barn for 2 horses. Would like it within 20-25 mile radius of where I am without having to cross into Iowa. I am willing to do evening feeding for mine or all horses for a reduced board at least 5 times a week, and/or will clean stalls. A barn with few people or a private barn who know horse nutrition. I ride western. Looking to show at local level only and just a couple of times a year, mostly just a for fun and pleasure rider. Contact me for more information. Thanks for reading.

I'm about 60 miles further than you'd like to go but am considering doing some boarding. I'm closer to Peoria.

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?

Crud! Well, that wouldn't work, I am currently traveling 34 minutes one way to where I am now and gas sure isn't going lower! I had this problem last summer when gas was outrageous and I think it's going to happen again. I hate this. I want more than anything to be able to ride my horse like I used to 4 days or more a week and it's not fair to just ride on lesson night, that sure isn't curing the riding bug for me, nor does it get my horse ridden more - I hate western IL!!

Thank you anyway.
