FRVPC Horse Trials, hosted by the Fox River Valley Pony Club, are held annually at the Barrington Hills Park District Riding Center and over the adjacent Spring Creek Forest Preserve.   The Fox River Valley Pony Club and the running of this event, along with the FRVPC Mini Event held annually in May, play a vital role in protecting the Spring Creek Forest Preserve and uniting the community to preserve a legacy and lifestyle unique to our area! 

The Spring Creek Forest Preserve is protected through the preservation of its exclusive use as equestrian and pedestrian only park land.  This is made possible by an intergovernmental agreement and partnership between the Barrington Hills Park District and the Cook County Forest Preserve, through which the Fox River Valley Pony Club assumed responsibility for much of the related land management and all of the maintenance of the equestrian jumps and paths over which the event is run, and in turn, the preservation of the unique equestrian nature of the Forest Preserve.  Part of the work of the Club involves clearing invasive species which contribute to the restoration of native plants and animals in the Forest Preserve.  This forest preserve, with the Barrington Hills Riding Center as its primary access point, serves as a "hub" of the trail system in Barrington Hills.
