  • About the Facility

    Established in 1954, the Winton Woods Riding Center (WWRC) in Winton Woods has grown into a regionally renowned lessons facility. The facility boasts approximately 40 horses, three barns, two lit outdoor arenas, an indoor riding hall and a cross country style jump field. The facility is staffed by talented, highly-trained employees, as well as more than 100 hard-working volunteers.

  • Equestrian Team

    The Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) is a great opportunity for middle and high school students to prepare for collegiate equestrian competitions (IHSA). Since the IEA is structured after the same model as the IHSA program, it gives younger riders a chance to polish their horsemanship and sportsmanship. In IEA there is no need for any rider to own a horse, because competition horses and tack are provided to contestants at each venue. Since the horse is new to the rider, scores are based upon horsemanship and equitation.

    The Great Parks Equestrian Team is aimed at Hunt Seat riders in grades 6–12 who have prior riding experience up to walk, trot and group canter on a variety of horses. For more information on the competition season, team try-outs and eligibility, please contact the Winton Woods Riding Center.

  • Horse Camps

    Designed for children ages 7–17, summer horse camps cover all aspects of horseback riding, including barn safety, breeds, colors and markings, the anatomy of the horse, grooming, tacking, and riding. All camps are very popular and fill quickly. Registrations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until camps fill and/or begin.

    Registration begins January 3, 2024 online or by calling 513-931-3057.
