This was an especially busy and productive year. Thanks to the support and guidance of our residents, the Park District completed an impressive list of projects and held events that we believe added to the enjoyment of those living in our unique village.
Saturday Walk-Only Rides!
Members of the Barrington Hills Riding Club welcome all members and non-members for Walk-Only Trail Rides which start at the Barrington Hills Park District Riding Center, 361 Bateman Rd, Barrington Hills, IL, Saturdays at 11 AM.
The ride lasts approximately an hour and everyone is invited. We only walk the horses which allows for a leisurely ride through the Park District Property and trails in the Forest Preserve District of Cook County. This is a great social event for the horses and the riders.
Riding Club of Barrington Hills Walk-Only Trail Rides are a great way for people to meet people and horses to meet horses.”
All are welcome. Please join us.
We meet at the wash rack and ride for about an hour. The ride is a great way for horses and riders to socialize. Helmets are required on Park District Property and Cook County Horse Tags and Rider licenses for riding on the Cook County Forest Preserve trails.
