2015 Tack Sale was a success thanks to our MEMBERS!!

Thank you all for making this year's tack sale a success!! This event would not be successful without our wonderful members that contributed. From the raffle donations, to the cookie bakers, and the raffle ticket buyers we all raised money for the club. Thank you! Remember we are only as strong and dedicated as our members, without a strong base, we have nothing to stand on.

Brookdale Check Presented to MCCD!

New Brookdale Multi Use Trail to Open A new 4.25 multi use trail at the 1,645-acre Brookdale Conservation Area in Woodstock is scheduled to open in late May. The first phase of the project also includes creating a temporary horse trailer parking lot off the existing Paulson Road entrance.  The mowed grass trail crosses Paulson Road and runs a loop along trees and around agricultural fields, staying west of Deep Cut Road.  This trail addition will complement the existing 1-mile looped nature trail, picnic shelter, 11-acre fishing pond and observation deck accessed off Route 14 or the Paulson Road Entrance. 


The Equestrian Coalition of McHenry County (which is comprised of the following equestrian organizations: McHenry County Horse Club, Bull Valley Riding Club, Riding Club of Barrington Hills, McHenry County Saddle Club and Northern Illinois Horseman’s Association) and  the McHenry County Conservation Foundation have been working to raise funds for the Project.  A check was presented in the amount of $16,765 towards Phase 1 of the Brookdale Site Master Plan Multi-Use Trail and Parking Lot at the Regular Meeting of the Board of Trustees Meeting on January 15, 2015 and pledged to raise and provide the local matching funds in order for the District to submit an Illinois and Department of Natural Resources 2015 RTP Grant for Phase 2 & 3 of the project.

Commitment To Conservation

We Adopted the Glacial Park, Ringwood Equestrian trailer lot on Keystone Road. Each time you go and clear litter from parking lot, trail, or report something unsafe, Please forward time/concerns to McHenry County Horse Club. We will be keeping a record of Volunteer hours!

We are a Horse Club that is located in McHenry County, Illinois.The McHenry County Horse Club NFP, was organized to provide the local horseman in the McHenry County area the ability to communicate about Equine Activities in the area. We also provide, through our affiliations with other organizations, other services that could be of interest to horsemen in the area. We are a 501 (C) (7) corporation.

This is where horse owners and riders can get together to share information about everything from locating good hay, farrier or equine veterinarian information: as well as finding a riding partner or someone to share a trailer ride.
