Every Sunday during the equestrian season, you can find a polo match at the International Polo Club including the championship matches of USPA Piaget Gold Cup and the Nespresso U.S. Polo Open.

Wellington is an Equestrian Paradise
Wellington wasn’t originally a farming 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 a farming 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, horse stable facilities are common and some of the best equine medical professionals live and work here.
