Wellington Edge Equestrian Center hosted an open house Sunday, June 24 at its grounds in Loxahatchee Groves.
Although the weather was a bit rainy, it did not interrupt the afternoon’s festivities. There was plenty of food, drinks, and ice cones available. Visitors got to walk through the center and see the facilities, which include a new 28-stall barn for horses, a large 1-acre riding ring, paddocks, riding areas, a feed and supply store, clubhouse, pool area, small RV park and more. There was also an exciting equestrian presentation enjoyed by all those attending.
Owner and operator Seth Brier announced his new summer camp program, which is now available to children in the area. The camp’s daily curriculum includes horse riding lessons by a certified trainer and indoor equestrian study time utilizing PowerPoint presentations to analyze and understand proper riding skills. These studies are then incorporated into the outdoor lessons. There is also swim, sports, art, movie and reading time on the schedule. Children may also help out around the farm and interact with the horses. For the more studious campers, the curriculum also includes “Action Academic,” which is a review of basic math and reading that is made fun and presented in a classroom setting.
The camp starts Monday, July 2. Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The cost is $228 per week. Wellington Edge Equestrian Center is located at 556 B Road, Loxahatchee Groves.
