Wellington

Saddle up for an equestrian adventure.

Sandy beaches give way to greener pastures for horse lovers in Wellington. Home to an internationally recognized equestrian community (with a social scene to match), this city in The Palm Beaches offers endless opportunities to play by day and ride off into the sunset at night.

Each January through April, Wellington’s equestrian season leaps into action. The Winter Equestrian Festival welcomes the world’s top riders in show jumping and dressage for 12 weeks of competition. During Palm Beach International Polo Season, you can’t swing a mallet without hitting a daily event, field-side brunch or champagne-soaked party. Capping it all off is the International Gay Polo Tournament, with non-stop excitement happening on and off the field. Find a fabulous hat for the match (or just a little retail therapy) at The Mall at Wellington Green.
 

Had enough horseplay? You’ll find a variety of beaches near Wellington, like nearby Lake Worth Municipal Beach with its popular fishing pier (don’t forget to snap a selfie!) and Palm Beach Municipal Beach, a public beach only steps from shopping mecca Worth Avenue.
 
You could easily spend an entire day at the Wellington Environmental Preserve, featuring nature trails, a six-story observation tower and, of course, an equestrian trail. Designated learning areas reveal insights into the surrounding environment. More outdoor adventure awaits at Peaceful Waters Sanctuary and Scott’s Place Playground.
 
In Wellington, the best of The Palm Beaches is at your fingertips.
