Wellington, Fla. – August 9, 2021 – Phelps Media Group (PMG), an international leader in equestrian sports marketing and public relations, is excited to welcome Next Level Performance Center to PMG’s elite clientele during the 2021 competition season.
Next Level Performance Center is an innovative training, boarding, and sales facility with locations in Southwest Ranches and Wellington, Florida. Seeking to provide a boutique environment to a select number of both dressage and show jumping clientele, the professionals behind Next Level designed the state-of-the-art facility with the serious competitor in mind, and the European equestrian spirit as an inspiration.
The main training and boarding facility is located in the horse-centric town of Davie, just outside of Miami, FL. This central location provides easy access to the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and is a short drive to Wellington, the equestrian capital of North America. With the opening of these two locations housing exceptional amenities, Next Level aims to reach clientele throughout South Florida.
“We are excited to launch our new business concept with the help of PMG,” Aaron Goldsmith, founder of Next Level Performance commented. “We look forward to collaborating with the experienced team at Phelps to take our business to the next level.”
With 32 Roewer & Rueb stalls available for top horses and competitive riders, Next Level is setting the bar for premier care, boarding, rehab, and training at new heights. All stalls are spacious and are equipped with individual cameras for 24-hour monitoring of every horse, as well as Nelson automatic waterers to monitor each horse’s water consumption. Additionally, 16 of the stalls include a runout. The facility is also able to accommodate stallions, providing special stalls and turnout. All 12 paddocks contain permanent concrete run-in sheds fully equipped with fans, and the indoor and outdoor arenas contain premier footing and an innovative underground drainage system specifically designed to be able to withstand hurricane season in South Florida.
Equipped with the world’s top international managers and trainers, Next Level clients will have full access to unparalleled education and knowledge. In addition to a stellar line-up of in-house staff, Next Level Performance Center has partnered top German Dressage rider and trainer Madeleine Bendfeldt, as well as Brazilian show jumper and World Equestrian Games rider, Celso Luis Camargo Ariani, to provide Next Level dressage and showjumping clientele with the best training opportunities in South Florida. Next Level Performance Center is also excited to offer the high-tech Pixio virtual training program to connect riders with trainers from all over the world. In addition to regular training sessions, clientele will also have the opportunity to clinic with two different Olympic riders.
Seeking to provide an all-inclusive experience, Next Level Performance Center will house a private rehabilitation center and lab that includes electromagnetic therapy, hydrotherapy, dry treadmill, and indoor and outdoor walkers. The hydrotherapy includes a sea salt water spa and Aquatred, an underwater treadmill renowned for its ability to rehabilitate and condition horses without additional stress to their joints. The lab also provides clientele with blood tests, meaning results and treatment are immediately available.
Seeking to provide their clientele with the best the South Florida equestrian scene has to offer, Next Level Performance center has locations in both Davie and in Wellington. With the main facility located in the exclusive neighborhood of Southwest Ranches, riders will have the luxury of having a home base as well as a satellite training facility located just minutes from the World Equestrian Festival showgrounds as well as Adequan Global Dressage Festival in the heart of Wellington. Experience world-class competition without the hassle of hauling and renting stalls. Next Level Performance Center will ship horses to and from the facility at no additional charge.
In addition to on-site exercise and training equipment, the Davie facility is uniquely positioned just a five-minute ride away from Vista View Park. Unlike most of South Florida, Vista View Park houses over 70 miles of trails as well as rolling hills. Set at one of the highest elevations in South Florida, Vista View Park is a highly sought-after destination for training and conditioning horses.
Next Level Performance professionals will also operate a world-class sales program featuring some of the best talented, young dressage and show jumping prospects in the country. Currently, Next Level Performance Center is developing top Dressage prospect, Sonata MF, a 6-year-old mare by Sir Donnerhall out of EM Duet MF. Sonata MF has been named the 2017 USDF Champion 2-year-old filly, Reserve Champion Filly for Dressage at Devon, and just recently qualified for the USEF/Markel Young Horse National Championships at the Lamplight Equestrian Center in August. Sonata MF has racked up a streak of impressive scores with Austin Webster and Madeleine Sarah Bendfeldt.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with professionals so invested in the progress of our sport”, said Lenore Phillips, President of Phelps Media Group. “Our team looks forward to developing the Next Level brand to serve elite equestrians with their horses’ best interests in mind.”
