The 11th week of the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) is teeming with excitement, offering 2* and 4* international jumper events, hunter derbies, and the WEF Equitation Championship. This week, Equestrian Village will host national and international hunter derbies. On Thursday evening, the spotlight turns to the WEF Equitation Championship presented by NetJets, where Wellington International’s most promising young equestrians will display their skills in the International Arena. The excitement continues into Saturday with the “Saturday Night Lights” event, highlighting the $150,000 Hermès CSI4* 1.50m Series Final Classic, a pinnacle of fierce competition that our riders have been eagerly anticipating all season. The week concludes on Sunday with the $200,000 IDA Development CSI4* Grand Prix, capped off with the weekly Parade of Champions and Leadline, marking a fitting end to a spectacular week.
