The Fox River Valley Hounds’ members exercise hounds while riding horses on Horizon Farms. These horse and hound exercises simulate a hunting tradition that began in Barrington Hills in 1940 and function as historic reenactments or pageants. They are not live hunts. They are conducted eight to ten times per year after the bird nesting season is complete from late August through early December, run about two hours and consist of horses and riders following mounted staff and hounds around the farm’s 420 acres.
