    Question Temporary Move... south Chicago??? help me keep riding

    I am going to be in the Lansing, south Chicago area for a few months (starting next week!) and I am looking for insight (good and bad- rave if you love it, warn me if I should stay away, o.O)
    On local riding stables/ hack barns/ boarding/ leasing/share boarding etc etc etc . I am an experienced western rider, and am happy to share board a horse for relaxed trail riding if that is what seems most appealing. At the same time, 3 months of twice weekly lessons in beginner/advanced beginner english/dressage interests me as well. I am NOT a fair weather rider- in fact I would LOVE the chance to ride in some serious snow! At the same rate, an indoor is handy, though not a deal breaker by a long shot.

    I am hoping to not drag a lot of gear with me...

    Small car + two people's stuff to get through 3-3 1/2 months + dog= not a lot of room for saddles :(

    I ask that you tell me what you know, what you love, what you hate. Is a particular trainer someone I should seek out? Do you know someone who is looking for a short term share boarder/ someone to help keep their horse(s) in shape through the coldest months of the year? Is a particular barn over run with small children? Is the place laid back or super strict? That sort of thing...

    I am hoping to get the local horse community to dish for me- the places I'm seeing on google as location positive, are website-less....
