WELLINGTON, Florida, Sept. 11, 2017–Hurricane Irma’s winds and rain left South Florida’s horse communities water-logged and littered with tree damage but no serious issues with horses and farms were reported Monday.
Although an estimated six million residents throughout Florida–including much of Wellington and neighboring Loxahatchee–were reported to be without electricity life was rapidly returning to normal.
Dressage-news.com visited several farms and found that most of the damage appeared to be trees and shrubs downed by high winds, flooded polo fields and paddocks, a few “live” power lines cut making a small number of roads impassable but no serious structural damage and a massive sense of relief.
