Some core facts about the Riding Club of Barrington Hills
We are an all-volunteer 501(c)7 (social non-profit organization) riding organization formed in 1937. The Club seeks to maintain the old tradition of neighbors riding to visit neighbors, and is dedicated to preserving, expanding, and riding the bridle paths in Barrington Hills, Illinois.
The bridle paths have been developed by the RCBH through the generosity and cooperation of the landowners of Barrington Hills and the Forest Preserve District of Cook County. The paths are maintained by the RCBH. Trails located outside the Forest Preserve are for the exclusive use of RCBH members and guests.
We are dedicated to preserving the equestrian traditions of Barrington Hills, which in turn helps to protect our town's five acre minimum zoning, open spaces, and availability of a variety of facilities to care for neighbors horses.
The Club's purpose is to serve as stewards of the bridle path system; to create and maintain interest in horseback riding and preserve equestrian traditions in the Barrington Hills countryside; to obtain the best possible facilities for trail riding on private trails in Barrington Hills and on public trails on county-owned property; to foster social interaction and to work for the benefit and pleasure of all who ride horseback and enjoy horses.
