Our hunter/jumper shows run Wednesday through Sunday, starting at 8 a.m. and winding down in the late afternoon. We recommend arriving mid-to-late morning and staying through the afternoon to catch the height of our show jumping events and other classes. This allows time to browse our many shops and equestrian vendors and enjoy lunch in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. For information on our Saturday Night Lights show jumping during WEF, visit this page.

Horse shows at Wellington International are casual outdoor events. We recommend sensible walking shoes so that you are comfortable while exploring the showgrounds. If you’ve never been to a horse show before, we recommend visiting our Horse Show 101 guide to learn about some sights, competition and fun you’ll experience at Wellington International!

All of our events are rain or shine —some of the most exciting jumping competition is in the rain! We only cancel or postpone a competition if the weather is severe to the point of risking anyone’s safety. We will post on Facebook and our website for major events such as Saturday Night Lights if there are last-minute cancellations, postponements, or other changes.

Bring the whole family! Kids will enjoy walking the grounds and seeing hundreds of beautiful horses up close. Wellington International is the perfect place to begin your love affair with the equestrian sport! Our Saturday Night Lights events are also great for children and feature activities such as face painting, circus performers, dance contests, t-shirt tosses, petting zoos, pony rides, free riders on the Venetian carousel and lively music!

Come hungry! Our food vendors are open during our horse shows and boast a diverse range of affordable dining options. Whether you’ve planned a Saturday night out with the kids or lunch with friends, we have it all!
