#5 of 10 in Things to do in Wellington
Palm Beach International Equestrian Center is considered the most recognizable equestrian sporting venue in the United States today. It encompasses a total of 500 acres, and the competition rings alone cover over 80 acres. PBIEC has two core facilities containing over 18 competition arenas, including one derby field and the largest covered riding surface in the world. Both show grounds are operated by Equestrian Sport Productions, LLC (ESP). Equestrian Sport Productions owns and operates 42 weeks of United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) rated horse shows from September through June, including the Winter Equestrian Festival and the Adequan® Global Dressage Festival.

The Main Show Grounds house 256 permanent stalls, wash racks, bridle paths for horses, pedestrian sidewalks, and golf cart tracks, along with dedicated shopping areas like Vendor Village, Hunter Hill, The Bridge, Shops at The International Club, and Tiki Hut Row.

The 12 show rings with adjoining schooling rings all feature top-of-the-line footing from Equestrian Services International. The feature of the property is the International Arena (357’x256’) that is surrounded by VIP box seating, general admission seating, and hospitality pavilions. It is highlighted by the famous bridge arching over the in-gate, where horses enter into the arena, and welcomes everyone to the best equestrian facility in the world.
