About Wellington Florida:
Wellington is a village just west of West Palm Beach in central Palm Beach County and 66 mi north of Miami. Wellington, one of the most successfully planned communities in Palm Beach County, it is one of the premier South Florida communities and is known for its abundant parks, quality schools, attractive neighborhoods and equestrian interests.
Wellington village is deeply rooted in the equestrian lifestyle, so much so that a horse outline appears on its community emblem, and it has been aptly named the Winter Equestrian Capital of the World.
During the height of the equestrian season, up to and sometimes over 20,000 horses can be found in Wellington at any given time.
Many of these horses compete at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center during the Winter Equestrian Festival, the longest-running equestrian event in the world. From January to April, thousands of athletes, some of them Olympians, demonstrate their skills in sports such as dressage and show jumping.
