The Winter Equestrian Festival kicks off today in Wellington, Florida. Every year I get a little nostalgic and a small part of me wants to jump in my car and head down there, most certain I'd be able to find work as a show groom. The caliber of horses and riders there is outstanding. This is a place to go to watch trainers train and see some of the best horses in the country jump around.
There is plenty to see, do, and experience. If you get an itch for a winter road trip, this should be it. The Winter Equestrian Festival lasts for twelve weeks at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center. For more information on the event, check out their website, http://pbiec.coth.com/ .
