    Default Need a barn and rider near downtown Chicago

    I need a barn and rider close to downtown Chicago and I don't know where to start looking. My Hanoverian is five now and needs to be ridden regularly but I really don’t have the time (for the next two years). I can maybe make it out twice a week in the winter. Summers, I'd be able to get out more often. The problem is I can’t afford full-time training and Chicago area board as well. I had been keeping her in WI in full training which was much more affordable.

    I am sure a million kids would offer to ride her but she does need an experienced rider since she was just started this past summer. She is a great ride though and a super fancy potential hunter. I do not want to sell her, lease or shareboard her. Just need to find a skilled horseless rider and barn.

    Does anyone know how much board is? I don't want to waste her time and her site is down.

    I do not know off the top of my head, but you could call her. She would not feel like you are wasting her time. Hopefully her site will be up soon.
