​​​The winter season has now drawn to a close, but not before months of amazing, top-notch action at Wellington’s world-renowned equestrian venues. On our cover this month is Hope Arellano, one of the best female polo players in the world, who is set to earn her 10-goal rating later this year. Arellano, profiled this issue, is coming off a stellar season in Wellington, highlighted by her becoming the first woman ever to represent Team USA at the FIP World Polo Championship and later being named the Most Valuable Player of the U.S. Open Women’s Polo Championship. Both events were held at the United States Polo Association’s National Polo Center-Wellington.
     Moms deserve the world, and the Mall at Wellington Green has plenty of gift options designed to make every mother feel special. Check out a few of these wonderful options in this month’s Mother’s Day Gift Guide. After Mother’s Day, the next day to mark on your calendar is Thursday, June 1. That’s the date of Flavors 2023, the annual signature event organized by the Wellington Chamber of Commerce. Make plans now to reserve your seat on one of the eight luxury buses visiting 20 local restaurants serving dinner by the bite.
     The summer is not just a time for fun and games. Summertime also offers an opportunity for high school students seeking to gain a competitive edge and secure acceptance to their dream college. We chat with Dr. Sapneil Parikh, founder of Sapneil Tutoring, on how you can help your student gain the competitive edge. Also this month, we speak with longtime Wellington equestrian entrepreneur Dan Carr about his company ArenaMend and the new, environment-friendly Noviun Fiber that he has developed with partner firm Natural Fiber Welding (NFW).
     Does it feel like the intimacy is gone from your relationship? It doesn’t have to be that way! In this month’s Wellington Health feature, relationship expert Richard Heller explains the seven areas of intimacy, while offering an “Intimacy Blueprint for Couples.” In our Wellington Today feature, Village Manager Jim Barnes explains how the Wellington community regularly demonstrates resilience, compassion and determination. In Wellington Table, local foodie Alina Davidov of Real Gourmet Food shows how the hot new brunch spot is your home. Davidov provides simple tips for making an ordinary brunch party extraordinary. Finally, our Wellington Real Estate feature takes a look at Wellington’s thriving and dynamic real estate market from Realtor Andrew Burr of the Andrew Burr Group.
     As we head into the summer months, we hope you find the time to enjoy all the amazing amenities that our community has to offer. We wish all our readers a happy Mother’s Day, and don’t forget to take the time to observe Memorial Day. We will be back in June with our traditional focus on education.
