Winter Equestrian Festival • Jan-March • Wellington, Palm Beaches

Each year from early January until late March, the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in Wellington hosts one of the world’s premier winter equestrian events. During 12 weeks of competition, Olympians, adult amateurs and professionals, juniors and children from more than 42 countries converge to compete in 70 unique divisions, making it the largest and longest running horse show of its kind.

Hundreds of riders from 2 to 70 years old, plus 6,000 horses, compete for over half a billion dollars in prize money! But there’s plenty more to do here. Walk leisurely through the popular Vendor Village. Savor the food, f un and flavors of the Oasis Café and discover upscale fashion and art at Hunter Hill and The Bridge Deck. You can even take an “up-close-and-personal” tour of the horses and stables.
