Come see the sights of what makes Wellington Florida one of the most famous Equestrian centers in the world. Here we host the annual Winter Equestrian Festival which is gearing up to be in full swing. The Winter Equestrian Festival runs through March 29th this year and started today.
This year there are competitors and horses from around the world including Germany, the Netherlands, Great Britain and the Middle East.
Competitors compete for over $6 million dollars in prize money.
Glen Straub and other land owners and developers around here might have a lot of money but Mark Bellissimo has class.
Mark Bellissimo has done a first class job of putting $10 million dollars into sprucing up the showgrounds and surrounding roads and property. Bellissimo visited one of the top rated Equestrian centers in Europe and decided he wanted to turn his Palm Beach International Equestrian Center into the best center in the world.
The transformation of before and after is like night and day. You will really enjoy the new seating that Mark has installed already.
He put in all new bleachers and much more seating to accomodate the spectators that love to watch the Equestrian competition here in Wellington Florida.
Lush landscaping with colorful gorgeous flowers adorn the rings and walkways all around the show grounds.
You can stop off for lunch by walking over the bridge to the Tavern on the Green. Jenny Oz is down here riding her horse.
Take a look around at our photos for a behind the scenes look at the workings of the Winter Equestrian Center.
The horses are happy with the largest improvement; special sandy material that is easy on the horses. This is an Olympic type footing and 3 of the rings have this material.
South Shore Blvd down towards the Equestrian center has been widened to 4 lanes with easier turn arounds for large horse trailers.
Admission is FREE on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Tickets are $15 per person on the weekends. Kids under 12 and seniors get in free.
If you know anyone who is coming down and needs a rental we have a rental right next to the showgrounds for $15,000 per month. Contact us at our office, 561-753-0135 for details.
Enjoy The Show!
