Looking Forward To Another
Amazing Equestrian Season
Dawn Rivera, Publisher
With the upcoming winter season nearly upon us, Wellington The Magazine is proud to once again present our Official Equestrian Season Preview this month, including all of the information you need to get ready for the best show jumping, dressage and polo available.
However, before we look forward, we look back to the amazing competition at the FEI World Equestrian Games Tryon 2018, which captivated the global equestrian community from Sept. 11-23 at the Tryon International Equestrian Center in North Carolina. The two weeks culminated with an impressive gold medal win for the United States show jumping team, featured on our front cover this month.
Our Official Equestrian Season Preview section takes a look at the upcoming 2019 action at Wellington’s world-renowned equestrian venues. The Palm Beach International Equestrian Center, the Adequan Global Dressage Festival and the International Polo Club Palm Beach are each predicting record-breaking seasons this winter. Also featured this month is a look at the new World Polo League debuting this season in Wellington. Keeping with our equestrian theme, we profile para-dressage rider Eleanor “Ellie” Brimmer, who refuses to allow her physical challenges to hold her back from her love for equestrian competition.
We feature Visions Hair Salon this issue and join owner Tom Monticello in celebrating the long-running hair studio’s 30th anniversary, which will be marked with a party on Sunday, Nov. 11. From one of Wellington’s oldest businesses, to one of its newest, we explore the exciting indoor cycling studio CycleBar, which opened this summer in Kobosko’s Crossing. This month’s issue also features a profile on top golfer Brooks Koepka, the current U.S. Open and PGA Championship winner. Did you know that Koepka grew up in Wellington and got his start at a local public golf course? We track the roots of this current golf superstar.
Wellington Professional this month visits with longtime financial experts Ben and Joanna Boynton of the Boynton Financial Group. Our Wellington Senior series stops by the Vinceremos Therapeutic Riding Center to chat with founder Ruth Menor, who has dedicated herself to a life of helping others through horses. Wellington Real Estate profiles Chris Heine Jr. of Chris Allen Realty, while Wellington Health interviews Alison Roloff of New Beginnings Medical Spa, who helps area residents lose weight and look younger. Wellington Home stops by a recently remodeled, spectacular equestrian estate in Grand Prix Farms. Finally, Wellington Table speaks with co-owner Rob Gray of the Trophy Room, a new, upscale restaurant opening soon on South Shore Blvd.
As we look forward to the upcoming equestrian season, we also pause to give thanks. May this month of Thanksgiving be one of peace and harmony for everyone in your family and the entire Wellington community
