South Wellington Estate

Welcome to Wellington’s Equestrian Preserves

Otherwise known as the Equestrian Overlay Zone District.

The Village of Wellington is defined by the enormous equestrian preserve area. At around 9,000 acres in size, this unique enclave has a high-end rural feel to it. It features spacious and also boutique equestrian estates, lush green paddocks, sprawling verdant polo fields, arenas, and the famous showgrounds. Grand traditional equestrian estates sit alongside state-of-the-art horse farms in a community with all the international and first-class amenities you would find in a larger town.

The yearly inflow of millions of dollars from the equestrian industry sets the Village of Wellington apart from other inland South Florida towns. It’s similar to having the economic impact of the Super Bowl in the same town every year! Wellington has a first-rate infrastructure, plenty of green open spaces, and great restaurants. There are over 60 private polo fields in this community, 35 miles of scenic horse trails, many equestrian showgrounds, top public sporting facilities, several luxurious golf and country clubs, and thousands of beautiful horse farms and palatial homes all clustered into one small village.

Over 20,000 horses and 7,000 riders call Wellington home during winter, making the community a hub of international sport and entertainment. Many celebrities, Olympians, millionaires, and billionaires keep homes here. The community is connected by the many bridle paths (or riding trails) that beckon riders to explore, leading to the world-renowned horse show venues at the center of the area’s social and sporting life. Wellington’s is host to the nation’s longest-running horse show; the Wellington Equestrian Festival, and on any given winter Sunday, over 5,000 spectators fill the grounds to watch world-class polo culminating in the highest ranked national polo tournament; the US Open.

What to Love

  • Equestrian-centric: Bridle paths connect residents to major showgrounds, and the area is a mecca for top Olympian riders and their clients.
  • Luxurious living: Sprawling estates and newer palatial barns reflect the area's commitment to luxury and the equestrian lifestyle.
  • Exclusive community: With land at a premium, the Wellington Equestrian Area remains an exclusive and sought-after destination.
