Imagine living and training in the warmer climes of Florida, when Covid restrictions allow. Well, you could make the dream a reality, thanks to this equestrian property which has come up for sale in Wellington, Florida.
It has been the U.S base of an Olympic showjumper and other top names in the sport too, and has everything you could ever wish for, for both horses and humans.
You will be just two miles from Palm Beach International Equestrian Centre, less than five miles from Wellington Equestrian Centre, in the heart of Florida’s equestrian community.
The beach is only down the road, roughly 30 minutes’ drive from your front door and just 25 minutes away from Palm Beach International Airport. The city of Miami is 70 miles away.
