Riding in Illinois
A livestock permit is required in the state of Illinois for horses coming into the state for showing, trail riding, etc. You do not need one if simply driving through. More information and permits can be obtained by calling the Illinois Department of Agriculture's Bureau of Animal Health at 217-782-4944. The phone line is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Electronic permits also will be issued through the department's Web site at www.agr.state.il.us.
If you need more information on this subject, Rus Wright has received copies of the flyer that the state of Illinois publishes and I can send you electronic copies of the flyer. Contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org
