Everglades Dressage’s Premier Facility Sold To Artemis Equestrian
Wellington, FL (May 16, 2014) – The exquisite equestrian facility that was once the backdrop for Grand Prix dressage trainer Bethany Peslar is now home to some of the best show jumpers in the world. Everglades Dressage’s 14 acre Wellington facility, located in Grand Prix Village next to the FTI Consulting Winter Equestrian Festival show grounds, was sold in early May to Artemis Equestrian Farm. The new owners have lost no time and have already bought in horses to be ridden by international show jumping’s Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum.
The stunning, state-of-the-art facility which was built by the late Norm Peslar and his wife, Rose, for their daughter Bethany includes a covered arena, outdoor arena, 18 box stalls and elegant appointments. “We’re beyond delighted that the new owner’s appreciate the farm as much as we did,” said Rose Peslar. The Peslars are looking forward to moving into their exquisite new barn in nearby Grand Prix Village South as soon as the finishing touches are completed in June.
“We’re very excited about our new farm,” Peslar continued, “It has 20 box stalls and lots of paddocks, a great environment for Bethany’s competition horses and her young prospects.” The new barn has every amenity one would expect in a world class Wellington show place, plus a few surprises, including an elevator! “Friends and colleagues will be invited to join us for the grand opening soirée later this year,” Peslar confided.
Bethany Peslar’s training program includes top Grand Prix prospects as well as young horses she bred herself. One of Everglades’ horses, Donatus, had top finishes in the Developing Horse Grand Prix with friend and fellow trainer, Endel Ots during the 2014 Adequan Global Dressage Festival, and is currently ranked #1 in the United States in that division.
Peslar, a USDF Bronze, Silver and Gold medalist was the 2006 Reserve Champion in the National Young Adult Grand Prix Championship “Brentina Cup” at Gladstone. Peslar’s impressive list of accomplishments also includes earning her USDF Gold Medal in 2003 at age 21.
The Peslars are also strong supporters of equestrian programs in the United States and are founding sponsors of the Global Dressage Festival in Wellington, so it is great that they will be staying in the area. For more information visit www.evergladesdressage.com.
