Equestrian Homes and the Equestrian Season

Palm Beach Point Homes for Sale with Large StablesWellington equestrian homes are generally used seasonally, although some properties are used year round. Over the past 10 years, Wellington as a village has bloomed. There are about 50,000 people living in Wellington now and during the season from January to April, the number goes up to about 300,000. The huge influx of people is due to the equestrian crowd and has the effect of increasing interest and desirability for the equestrian homes in town during each season. Hence, the best time to shop for equestrian properties is after April and before October. Although January starts the peak season, many people start showing up in October to train and enjoy the great weather.

Wellington is an Equestrian Paradise


Wellington wasn’t originally an equestrian area in the 1950’s when Charles Oliver Wellington, an accountant from Boston purchased the land for a farming venture. And it wasn’t equestrian in the 1980’s when the Gould family tried to create an Indy car community with a private airport so they could fly in and race their cars around the winding streets. Wellington only became an equestrian area in the 1990’s when the polo crowd moved west to take advantage of the sod farms that made great polo fields. And now, the weather is perfect for riding on the miles of scenic bridle trails all year round, equestrian facilities are common and some of the best equine medical professionals live and work here.
