We’re thrilled to bring you the CDI5* dressage competition this week at Wellington International, featuring events on Wednesday and Friday evenings. Seize the opportunity to witness some of the world’s most skilled dressage athletes showcase their talents in the prestigious International Arena.

Mark your calendars for an enchanting evening of dressage on March 15th! Before the excitement of the CDI5* Grand Prix Special & Freestyle kicks off this Friday, indulge in the Helgstrand Jewellery Sip & Shop event at the International Club Shops from 5-6:30 PM. Enjoy a splendid time shopping while savoring delightful passed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails.

Remember to register for the Groom’s Class at 3 PM this Friday in Ring 10. Thanks to the generous support of Double H Farm, The Gotchman Family, and Evergate Stables, we’re offering over $6,000 in prizes to honor the dedication and hard work of our hunter and jumper grooms.

This week is packed with must-see events, including the $10,000 Manestream 5-Year-Old Developing Jumper Classic, the $15,000 North Star 6-Year-Old Developing Jumper Classic, and the $25,000 Lovsta Future Challenge 7-Year-Old Young Jumper Final. Don’t miss out on these spectacular showcases of young talent on Friday!

Beyond the competitive events, our Sustainability Saturdays are a must-attend. Friends of Manatee Lagoon educate the community about the challenges manatees encounter in Florida. By raising funds and awareness, they are able to offer life-changing opportunities to learn about protecting manatees and marine life conservation. We invite you to join us and learn more about their impactful work. Learn more here.
