This winter, Wellington welcomes back the world’s top dressage competitors for the Adequan Global Dressage Festival competitions at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center’s Equestrian Village. This month, our annual Faces of Dressage issue once again highlights the diverse group of athletes who participate in this majestic sport, offers a look at the sponsors that support it and provides an overview on what to expect when visiting the AGDF showgrounds.
     On our cover this month is Paralympian Rebecca Hart, a para-dressage rider who has not let her disability keep her from participating in the sport she loves. Fresh off her medal-winning victory at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon, she has big plans for 2020. Also featured is the mother-daughter team of Diane Creech and Vanessa Creech-Terauds, who love their time wintering in Wellington and competing together at the AGDF. 
   From elite, international dressage to the sport’s more introductory levels, to the uplifting sport of para-dressage, all levels of this unique discipline are on display here in Wellington — and we highlight just a few of these amazing riders in our Faces of Dressage special pictorial section.
    Also this issue, we visit with holistic equine therapist Sherry Chesler of SherAl Farm, and we learn about how equestrian entrepreneur Elizabeth Ehrlich has used her time in Wellington to help build and promote her growing equine supplements company, Equine Elixirs. Next, we check in with Quentin Judge and Cayce Harrison, the unstoppable husband-and-wife duo behind the international training, breeding and sales operation Double H Farm. Looking for equestrian artwork? Profiled this issue, you’ll meet artist Weatherly Stroh, who fuses her love of horses with her passion for painting.
   Our Wellington Program series this month looks at the new boardwalk promenade project nearing completion that will open up the Lake Wellington waterfront. Wellington Professional profiles Julie Tannehill, the glue that keeps Phelps Media Group together. Haute for Season, our fashion feature, looks at the timeless styles available at Nantucket Whaler, sister apparel brand to U.S. Polo Assn. Wellington Real Estate visits with Brady Walter of Century 21 WC Realty, while Wellington Health chats with Dr. Diego Rubinowicz of the Urology Center of Palm Beach, who uses a state-of-the-art therapy to treat Benign Prostate Hyperplasia or BPH. Finally, Wellington Table dines at India Grill & Bar, which puts a focus on quality ingredients and great presentation.
    Once again this season, we turn our gratitude toward all of our community partners, loyal advertisers, our dedicated staff and all of those involved in helping us continue creating a publication that brings you the best that Wellington has to offer since 2004!
