Facility Rentals: HITS Lamplight Equestrian Center – Wayne, IL

As one of the country’s most beautiful equestrian facilities, the incredibly charming Lamplight Equestrian Center is the premier horse show facility of the Midwest. Located on 55 acres, the showgrounds are landscaped with thousands of trees, perennial gardens, and flower-lined walkways. Dedicated sand and rubber walking paths for horses lead the way to barns and arenas. The main arenas feature individual pavilions offering excellent viewing for spectators. The Ringside Café and Hitching Post Bar, with indoor and outdoor seating, offer food service and catering and are perfect for hosting any event.  

Lamplight’s five outdoor competition arenas, schooling arenas, and lunging areas are equipped with world-class GGT Footing, suitable for a variety of disciplines. With 450 permanent stalls and additional tented stabling options available, the facility has the space to accommodate up to 1,200 horses, all with water, electricity, and cement wash racks. Ample trailer parking and RV hook-up spaces are available for those remaining on-site.

Situated in the scenic Fox River Valley, the area is home to dozens of horse farms, riding centers and boarding facilities near the historical towns of St. Charles, Geneva, and Batavia. These Fox River Valley towns are, individually and collectively, a paradise for diners and shoppers alike. Located approximately 35 miles west of Chicago, competitors and spectators will appreciate Lamplight’s proximity to O’Hare International Airport, downtown Chicago, and all the activities and entertainment the city has to offer.
