Wellington is nestled west of opulent Palm Beach. This community is where horse lovers go during the winter months and has earned its way to being called the Equestrian Capital of the World.
Each year in January through April, a wave of visitors descend on Wellington for its Winter Equestrian Festival. The town has become a winter mecca. Celebrities, athletes, world-famous musicians, and CEO’s of million-dollar companies all flock to the small village like snowbirds to enjoy the equestrian season in full bloom. The festival attracts more than 250,000 visitors and more than 2,800 riders from over 40 states and 30 countries. Palm Beach International Equestrian Center
