About Wellington, FL

The once modest village of Wellington, historically an agricultural and then primarily bedroom community in the Palm Beach area, has become the nation's premier competitive equestrian sports venue. Shaped by the historic Flying Crow Ranch, the 18,000-acre horse farm of namesake C. Oliver Wellington, the city has an easy-going yet fairly well to do character. Not as trendy as neighboring Palm Beach, or as placid as the adjacent Greenacres, Wellington is a small city with a definitive place in state tourism.
