Saddle Up!

Barrington Hills Saddle Club teaches children the art of horsemanship

Starting in March and through October this year, Barrington Hills Saddle Club will offer four sessions for children ages six to 12. Classes meet on Thursdays after school from 4:30 to 5:45 p.m. There will also be three-day camps on July 14, 15, and 17, with each class running from 9 a.m. to noon. Sponsored by the Barrington Hills Park District, sessions will be held at the Barrington Hills Riding Center.

Saddle Club attendees will learn basic riding skills or enhance their current skill levels. Handling horses will also be taught with emphasis on safety, grooming, and tacking. Sessions will also include training on nutrition for horses, health, first-air, and bathing. The benefit of learning how to care for a horse builds a child’s self-confidence and encourages discipline. Children will also meet others who enjoy horses in the club.

Under the tentative tax levy, Barrington Hills intends to collect about $5 million from property owners in the mostly residential community in 2020. The village projects needing about $50,000 less in property taxes for next year.

“We’ve squeezed a little more out of the orange,” Village President Martin McLaughlin said Friday.

Barrington Hills’ property tax levies have declined annually since 2013. Officials said the yearly levy has been trimmed by a combined 24% over that time.

More than 500 people attended Citizens for Conservation’s harvest fundraiser, Ignite the Night, Sept. 14 in Barrington Hills.

The event at the Barrington Hills Park District featured live music by Beamish, food and beverages, stargazing with professional-grade telescopes, flashlight walks, close-up encounters with raptors, a raffle and horse-drawn wagon rides, all capped by a spectacular bonfire.

Citizens for Conservation hoped to divert as much material from the landfill as possible. Thanks to the assistance of the group Mindful Waste, all packaging used at the event was compostable, recyclable or reusable.

Mindful Waste volunteers were on hand to educate and help with the sorting process, and after recycling 154 pounds of bottles, cans and cardboard; upcycling 11 pounds of plastic film; composting 315 pounds of food waste, paper plates, cups and napkins; and donating 60 pounds of extra corn, only a six-pound bag of landfill waste remained.

All proceeds from the event will support Citizens for Conservation’s preservation and restoration work in the Barrington area. Supporters of the event included the Forest Preserves of Cook County and the Barrington Hills Park District.
