By Jan Westmark-Allan There are always horses in need of help and people in need of help – but the story I bring you today is about a horse and rider who both need help. The good news is, as fellow equestrians we can help. This story is about Lori Gilman Gailbreath of Pennsylvania, a Para Dressage rider, who hopes to compete on the United States Para Equestrian Team

By Jan Westmark-Allan The courtyard at The Brazilian Court Hotel in Palm Beach. I feel very fortunate to have “hotel hopped” while in Palm Beach – and at my last hotel I was treated like royalty!! The Brazilian Court Hotel & Beach Club Palm Beach – another partner with WEF and another partnership I truly enjoyed — had a few tricks up their sleeve and they all included the royal treatment. I stayed at The Brazilian Court twice – because once wasn’t enough! On my second stay, our Sidelines WEF winner Jack Lube and his mom and sister were also staying at the hotel – along with the Queen

By Jan Westmark-Allan The Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach – very grand! Last month my daughter Abby and I went to the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) for a week and had a wonderful time! Not only did we enjoy the horse show and all the wonderful showing, but we also stayed at three amazing hotels! In my blog yesterday I wrote about staying at the Four Seasons Resort in Palm Beach.

By Jan Westmark-Allan I came across an article in Ocean Drive magazine the other day called “The Perfect Day in Palm Beach” and it made me smile. The article talked about where to stay in Palm Beach and how to “do as the uber-chic Palm Beachers do.” Several times this year I have “done” like the Palm Beachers and experienced the uber-chic lifestyle! Over the next three days I am going to tell you about the three luxurious places I stayed (yes, being an Editor can be tough!!) – and I will start with my first ultra swanky home-away-from-home: The Four Seasons Resort in Palm Beach.

By Jan Westmark-Allan I have spent many years at WEF (the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, Florida) and I love the show grounds. I was in Wellington this past weekend and there were even more improvements! While I remember when Littlewood was behind WEF and that is where we showed when WEF wasn’t running, Mary Jane Scott remembers even more of the “old show days!” Mary Jane is my guest blogger today and takes us back to the days when WEF was simply called the Show Grounds
