Backyard Barns & Stables

One of the most distinctive aspects of Barrington Hills is the ability for residents to enjoy housing, raising, riding and breeding horses on their own properties. Many of our residents provide access to neighbors through a network of private riding trails throughout the village.

Village Ordinance

The Village of Barrington Hills welcomes and accommodates private ownership of horses and perpetuates the tradition of small-scale “neighborly boarding” of horses which allows neighbors and friends who don’t have barns on their own properties to enjoy our country lifestyle. This privilege extends to other home occupations which are allowed by our code, which permits some business activities to take place in an unobtrusive fashion in a neighborhood setting while preserving the tranquility of the natural surroundings.
