The Horse Trials are underway in Barrington Hills this weekend. About 300 upper-level riders from around the country are competing with their beautiful horses today and tomorrow at the Barrington Countryside Park District Riding Center.
These experienced competitors will be jumping larger obstacles, including a challenging water complex this weekend.
