Will County Trail Riders

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.
