About Us


On Course Riding Academy is a USHJA-recognized and SafeSport-certified Hunt Seat equestrian center in the Chicagoland Northwest suburbs.  We are located at Birch Hill Farm in Wauconda, IL, where we accommodate our herd of nearly 20 schoolmaster horses. On Course’s USHJA-certified trainers are highly skilled with years of professional experience and are experts at teaching anyone and everyone––from those who have never touched a horse to riders with an extensive competitive background.


We are proudly family-owned and operated and have helped riders accomplish their biggest goals, develop stellar horsemanship, and compete at high-level horse shows for 16 years. We happily welcome anyone who wants to begin or continue their equestrian endeavors into the On Course family.
