The New Year is upon us, and with that comes the excitement of the 2017 Equestrian Show Season!

Wellington is known as the equestrian capital of the world. Only one week into the season, and we’ve already seen the Equestrian Sport Productions Holiday Finale kick off! Only a day into competition the first winners of 2017 have been crowned, from Mara Picciochi taking first place aboard Quixotic Z in the Puddle Jumpers, Daniel Coyle with Farona claiming the top spot in the 1.30m, and Maria Rasmussen was head of the leaderboard in Performance Hunter 3ft3 on Rendezvous Farm’s - Prologue.

With the fun from the first show already getting us in horse show mode, we decided that there would be no better way to welcome the season than by taking a look ahead to some of the most exciting events happening in 2017!


The Winter Equestrian Festival will be kicking off once again in 2017! Starting on the 11th of January and running until the 2nd of April, we’ll see riders from more than thirty-three countries fight for their chance for the top prize, and a share of the generous prize fund - which currently stands at just over $9 million!

While the pros might have us all clambering for a seat to watch the big prize money classes, there’s no worry of forgetting the amateurs and pony riders! As one of the most competitive arenas in the world; the quality of horses and expertise of riders in every division is a remarkable sight to behold.

One of the biggest crowd pleasers has to be The Battle of The Sexes! On the 14th of January, the girls will go up against the guys to compete for charity in a series of match races, and speed classes. With the girls having won every Battle Of The Sexes since the competition's inception nine years ago, we wonder whether the girls can hold on for a full decade, or whether the boys will step up their game!


The Global Dressage Festival has long been known as one of the most esteemed dressage competitions on the circuit. Taking place at Adequan Global Dressage between the 12th of January and the 25th of March 2017.

The show organizers are well known for their ability to put on a great competition that has riders coming back year after year, and with crowd favorites including the CDI 5* and CPEDI 3*, we expect to welcome some big names to our small corner of the world.


The oldest event on our list is the US Open Polo Championships, this event was first held over one hundred years ago in Van Cortlandt Park, NY but has since migrated to the warmer climes of Florida.

The show has a lot of anticipation this year due to recent developments in the Polo scene here in Wellington. Currently going through some significant changes, Wellington Polo aficionados will likely know of the recent sale of the International Polo Club to Wellington Equestrian Partners (WEP).

With an extensive list of competitions, circuits, and venues already under the successful ownership of WEP, we see their partnership with the Polo world signaling a bright future for the local Polo scene. Don't miss the battles at Gladiator Polo January 26th!

If you’re familiar with the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center then you are already aware that their facilities are world class. So to keep up with ever higher expectations from a demanding public they have undertaken major renovations, as they explain in their most recent press release from September 27th.

The International Ring, as well as the warm-up areas right beside it are getting an improved drainage system and arena base as well as a complete install of the newest technology in footing material in order to enhance the stability and quality of competition at the facility.

As Mark Bellissimo, CEO of Equestrian Sport Productions LLC, and Managing Partner of Wellington Equestrian Partners explains, they want to “ensure that this facility and its surrounding amenities continue to match the caliber of riders we host during the Winter Equestrian Festival Season.”

In order to provide everyone there with what could arguably be described as one of the finest surfaces in the world, Equestrian Services International, the industry’s leading footing and Surface experts, are engineering all the renovations for the International Ring, which will include freshly mixed all-weather footing.

Although at the top of the list of priorities we can find the International Ring and surrounding areas, improvements in footing and arena base to the Mogavero Ring and the Denemethy Ring are also scheduled. ESI will handle all of them so that they are ready by the beginning of the Winter Season.

This just goes to show that the best are the best because they keep getting better.
