With hundreds of thousands of protesters across America taking part in #MarchForOurLives on Saturday, March 24, Wellington’s horse community came together at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center to support school safety and to remember the victims of school violence. In light of the school shooting that took place on Feb. 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, less than an hour south of Wellington, the equestrian community showed its support. Olympic show jumper Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum and Katherine Bellissimo of Wellington Equestrian Partners spearheaded the effort. Reprinted with permission from the Town Crier Newspaper.
