Who We Are:

A handful of people met to discuss working with the Will County Forest Preserve to allow horses on the trails in Will County. At that first meeting an alliance of trail riders formed calling themselves the Will County Trail Riders (WCTR).

Since that time, WCTR, speaking as the organized voice of the county’s equestrians, has worked with the forest preserve and other public entities with the request to include equestrian use of public land. The WCTR have received positive results in the past and is working towards the future inclusion of equine on newly constructed trails throughout Will County.

In our endeavor to further educate the public, we also choose to educate ourselves so as to represent  the equine population in a responsible fashion. Our meetings provide an opportunity to  plan future events,  assisting our members in becoming educated and responsible horse owner.

The WCTR meet monthly on the third Thursday of the month at: Beggars Pizza in New Lenox
