Recollections From The ‘Voice Of Polo’

Recollections From The ‘Voice Of Polo’  
Tony Coppola, Owner Of The Tackeria And A Former President Of The United States Polo Association, Has Been There Since The Very Beginning Of Polo In Wellington

By Y.A. Teitelbaum

Wellington The Magazine’s year-long Wellington History feature series includes the recollections of early Wellington pioneers who built the community we enjoy today. This month, longtime polo writer Y.A. Teitelbaum speaks with “Voice of Polo” Tony Coppola, founder and owner of The Tackeria, on the early years of polo in Wellington. Coppola was already a familiar face on the South Florida polo scene when the legendary Bill Ylvisaker unveiled his vision for polo in Wellington.

Tony Coppola is synonymous with polo in Wellington, just as Wellington is recognized as the “winter equestrian capital of the world.” As the iconic “Voice of Polo” and a local businessman, Coppola has been here since the beginning.

Coppola started riding when he was nine years old and began playing polo on Long Island in New York before he turned 13. After serving in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War and spending several winters at home after being discharged, he moved to South Florida and continued playing. He also was a club manager and an umpire before he shifted his focus onto the business side of the sport. He opened The Tackeria in the mid-1970s, selling polo tack to players from a mobile trailer parked next to the fields.

“In 1977, I took a ride with [Palm Beach Polo founder] Bill Ylvisaker west of [State Road 7], the end of the world, and he told me about this great vision that he had [of a polo club],” the 77-year-old Coppola recalled. “Forest Hill was just two lanes. Big Blue was still a dirt road. South Shore was paved only until Pierson, and a dirt road the rest of the way.”

That vision was the catalyst that ultimately materialized into the internationally renowned Palm Beach Polo and Country Club, a gated community where high-end homes were eventually surrounded at its peak by 10 full-sized fields, including a stadium, 45 holes of golf and some two dozen tennis courts.

“The amazing thing was that Ylvisaker’s vision was incredible,” said Coppola, who moved to Loxahatchee Groves in 1979. “Prior to that, the Sunshine League in Boca Raton had four, maybe six teams. He had this thing about making this an international destination. The first couple of years we had 10, 12 teams playing 22-goal level polo. We had two teams out of Colombia, [one from] Nigeria, [one from] France, Argentina.”

It was quite a sight to see when Coppola returned to Wellington before the 1979 polo season started.

“Actually, what I always marvel over was when I returned in the fall, the stadium was only partially finished,” he continued. “The Saturday before the first game on the stadium field, there were well over 100 people working. There was a line of people carrying chairs up the stadium stairs. It was like the ants bringing the crumbs back to the queen. Painters painting, welders welding.”

This year, The Tackeria celebrates its 45th anniversary and is one of the longest continuous businesses still operating in the village. He knows they were lucky to be here at the beginning and still here decades later.

“Schaefer Drugs is the oldest in the community, and probably a couple of real estate brokers,” said Coppola, who remembers the paint store, the deli and pizza shop from the earliest days. “But we’re in the top 5. Businesses have come and gone. If we’re not in the top 5, then the Top 10.”

During the first several years, Coppola operated a small store in the polo club barns to be closer to the players, which made it easier to sell tack, bridles, mallets, bits and other polo equipment.

The business moved to various locations around Wellington as the growth of polo and equestrian disciplines flourished at a steady pace. Coppola’s 12,000-square-foot store and warehouse has been at the epicenter of the equestrian crossroads on the corner of South Shore Blvd. and Pierson Road for the last 15 years. The store is close to numerous polo fields, as well as the hunter/jumper and dressage venues, basically across the street from the original Palm Beach Polo stadium.

“We used to turn in to come to the polo club [where the west entrance on South Shore is] and drive along that canal, it was a dirt road, to get to the club barns,” Coppola said. “And then they finally closed it off, and we had to drive all the way to the corner and make a left-hand turn [onto Pierson].”

For Coppola, the polo in Wellington wasn’t limited to just the stadium. Wellington had less than 10,000 residents in the early 1980s, so locals took advantage of the abundant empty space.

“Where the village complex sits, we used to play polo, three on a side, there, right on Forest Hill Blvd. in the summer for the locals,” Coppola recalled.

In addition to running his business full-time, Coppola was announcing mid-week polo matches at Palm Beach Polo. He has now announced every U.S. Open, the premier polo tournament in North America, for the last 45 years. He has also served on numerous committees for the United States Polo Association (USPA) and recently served a two-year term as president.

In 2006, Coppola received the prestigious Iglehart Award for his lifetime contributions from the Museum of Polo and Hall of Fame, reflecting his years of passion and dedication to the sport.

Wellington, Coppola and The Tackeria grew up together. Coppola has many memories and has seen even more changes.

One sentimental memory Coppola recalls isn’t the first dollar earned from The Tackeria but rather a guestbook that he started while selling polo equipment at Oak Brook Polo near Chicago.

The collection of signatures from nearly every top player in the 1970s is probably his most cherished memory. However, the keepsake was lost and never recovered. It is one of Coppola’s biggest regrets.

“Juan Carlos Harriott [arguably the greatest player ever], all the polo players, [Hall of Famers] Tommy Wayman, Bart Evans, Joe Barry, all the great Argentines, I had this great book, but somewhere along the line, it got lost. That would be a great memory to have,” he said.

Coppola is a Wellington pioneer, and he was in the right place at the right time with the right people to see it all unfold before him.


Wellington The Magazine Celebrates Two Decades

Wellington The Magazine Celebrates Two Decades
Kicking Off Our Year-Long Anniversary As We Reflect On The Past 20 Years

In the quiet embrace of Wellington, a publication emerged two decades ago that would weave the stories of the village into a colorful tapestry. Wellington The Magazine, from its humble inception, has grown to become a testament to the richness of community spirit and the power of storytelling. As we commemorate our 20th anniversary, it’s an opportune moment to look back on the journey, celebrate the milestones, and cast a hopeful gaze into the future.

As we take a walk down memory lane, we reminisce about when Wellington The Magazine was born in January 2004 with a vision to capture the essence of this vibrant community, launching with a feature on Wellington’s unique Aero Club neighborhood and an array of stories on shopping, eating and living in Wellington. The magazine became a unique voice for the community, chronicling local events, profiling noteworthy personalities and celebrating the achievements that made Wellington a fascinating and tight-knit community.

Thumbing through hundreds of pages and skimming through story after story gives us such a sense of pride in the team that brought this publication to life, anchored in the idea that Wellington needed a monthly lifestyle magazine of its own. Even until today, planning and visualizing all the content, layout and design elements still exhilarate the team each and every issue. Although many of the features have since taken on a life of their own, across many plot twists and turns, the stories of businesses and individuals will live on in our archive of magazines forever. On 20 years of magazine pages, we see familiar faces, some who have moved away and some who are no longer with us. Yet their stories and legacies live on.

Over the past 20 years, Wellington The Magazine has achieved many milestones. In our first issue, we laid out an array of content categories and departments, refining each periodically to make sure we were providing the local stories that our local readers want. This has included features on local businesses, community events, personality profiles and human-interest pieces that have resonated with readers, creating a bond that goes beyond the ink and paper. We have profiled local entrepreneurs, sampled the fare at countless area restaurants and brought readers into many of the most amazing homes in Wellington. We have profiled world-renowned equestrians, along with the stars of our own community — artists, business leaders, health professionals, educators and more.

As the community evolved, so did the magazine. It adapted to the changing times, embracing digital platforms and multimedia storytelling while staying true to its roots. This evolution mirrored the transformation of Wellington itself, becoming not just a magazine but a living, breathing part of the village’s journey.

Two decades later, Wellington The Magazine stands as a testament to the power of local journalism, and its impact isn’t confined to its pages. Through events, partnerships and community engagement initiatives, it has fostered a sense of belonging among residents. It has become a platform for dialogue, a catalyst for positive change and a unifying force that goes beyond the boundaries of neighborhoods. One of the magazine’s most significant achievements has been amplifying the voices of the community. Through interviews, profiles and photography, it has given a platform to residents, business owners and community leaders, creating a vibrant mosaic of perspectives that define Wellington.

Although it is fun to look back, we must never lose sight of envisioning our next 20 years. As we stand on the cusp of a new era, Wellington The Magazine is poised to embrace technological advancements that will redefine storytelling. From virtual reality experiences to interactive features, the magazine will continue to evolve, ensuring that it remains a relevant and engaging source of information for the community. The next two decades hold the promise of further expanding the magazine’s scope. As the community grows, so will the stories to be told. We explore new avenues, delve into untold narratives and continue to be the bridge connecting residents with the heartbeat of Wellington.

In an era of constant change, the magazine will not only adapt, but lead the way in fostering innovation. From community-driven initiatives to collaborations with local artists and businesses, Wellington The Magazine will be at the forefront of initiatives that shape our community’s future.

Wellington The Magazine’s 20th anniversary is not just a celebration of the past, but a gaze into the future. As we applaud the journey so far, we are equally excited about the untold stories, uncharted territories and unimagined possibilities that the future holds. Together, as a community, we look forward to the continued growth, evolution and impact that this magazine will have on the lives of residents and the vibrant Village of Wellington. Here’s to two decades of storytelling — and to many more chapters yet to be written.


Wellington’s Winter Wonderland

Wellington’s Winter Wonderland The USPA’s National Polo Center Offers World-Class Polo And So Much More This Season

Situated in the heart of Wellington’s legendary horse country, the National Polo Center-Wellington (NPC) is the perpetual home for polo in the United States and enables the United States Polo Association to showcase the finest that the sport has to offer. The 2024 winter season at NPC is now underway, showcasing many of the finest teams and players in the sport.

Spectating from the stadium, private boxes, fieldside tailgates and special hospitality tents, all overlooking the prestigious U.S. Polo Assn. Field One, is an unparalleled experience.

The 161-acre venue hosts some of the sport’s premier events and tournaments, including the Gauntlet of Polo, which takes places from February to April every winter featuring the world’s preeminent teams, professional athletes and finest horses.

Put on your best outfits and break out your champagne glasses — Wellington’s world-famous winter polo season is underway. Following last year’s inaugural season at the National Polo Center-Wellington, the nation’s “Sunday Field” for polo is ready for the excitement to return. If you listen carefully, perhaps you can hear the thundering sound of hoofs galloping at full speed across the field, led by some of the world’s best polo players. Watching the “sport of kings” on Sundays at NPC is a tradition to be enjoyed by everyone, from year-round residents to jet-setting socialites, longtime polo experts to those new to the sport. Perhaps you prefer cheering from the grandstands, or maybe tailgating is more your style. Others enjoy the sumptuous brunch with all the amenities at the Pavilion. Either way, the United States Polo Association’s National Polo Center-Wellington is the place to be on Sunday afternoons. As we do each year, Wellington The Magazine is highlighting just a small handful of the many amazing athletes you will see on NPC’s pristine fields this season. Turn the page and meet the Faces of Polo 2024.

American prodigy Hope Arellano hails from a long line of polo players. Arellano has held a mallet in her hand since early childhood. At age 12, she won her first 12-goal tournament alongside her brothers, Lucas and Agustin Arellano, and her Hall-of-Fame father, Julio Arellano. The young superstar’s success has catapulted her through the ranks and the record books. At 14, Arellano became the youngest player in history to win the U.S. Open Women’s Polo Championship. In 2022, she became the first woman to represent the U.S. in the prestigious XII FIP World Polo Championship. Come January, Arellano will once again make history as she surpasses her father’s highest handicap to become the first American player since 2015 to achieve a 10-goal status and the youngest American ever to reach a 10-goal women’s handicap. Not just excelling in the U.S., in December, Arellano became the first American to win the Women’s Argentine Open.

Tomas Panelo’s polo career has been on the rise since 2017, when he represented his home country of Argentina and won the XI FIP World Polo Championship. In 2021, the fresh-faced Argentine secured another monumental victory at the Queen’s Cup. Panelo had a record year in 2023. During the inaugural winter season at the National Polo Center, Panelo secured wins in the USPA Gold Cup with Scone and an impressive performance in the Ylvisaker Cup final. Over the summer, Panelo shined as he set the speed during the 2023 summer in Santa Barbara with Brookshire, where he picked up wins in the America Cup and the NetJets Pacific Coast Open.

Kylie Sheehan’s track record speaks for itself. From winning both interscholastic and intercollegiate national titles at Garrison Forest (2009) and the University of Virginia (2012, 2013), to winning the U.S. Open Women’s Polo Championship with BTA/The Villages (2021), Sheehan has proven her polo proficiency time and again. The Baltimore native remains dedicated to growing the sport at home through the Wellington-based Flying Cow Polo Club and the Women of Wellington (WOW) tournament series. The newly formed league provides additional playing opportunities for women and serves as a platform to promote amateur and professional female players, encouraging greater participation in the U.S. Open Women’s Polo Championship.

Dominating the 2023 winter season at the National Polo Center, 18-year-old Santos Merlos of Argentina made his mark with Iconica in his first professional showcase in Wellington last year. Merlos and his Iconica teammates took home the win from the first Florida Circuit 16-Goal Super-Series Championship after capturing the Joe Barry Memorial, Ylvisaker Cup and Iglehart Cup. In the Joe Barry Memorial, Merlos was named Most Valuable Player after a spectacular four-goal performance. The son of former 10-goaler Sebastian Merlos, this young competitor is sure to shine again this season and is one of the top players to watch!

A long-time legend in the sport, Argentine Adolfo Cambiaso is a name synonymous with polo itself and an integral part of American polo. At just 19 years old, Cambiaso earned the distinguished 10-goal handicap status, and in 2000, he founded La Dolfina, one of the most successful Argentine teams in history. Now 48, the veteran player has a record to match with one of the most successful careers in the Argentine Triple Crown, as well as victories in England and the United States. Throughout his time competing in the U.S., Cambiaso has acquired eight C.V. Whitney Cup victories, 15 USPA Gold Cup titles and nine U.S. Open Polo Championship trophies, including five Most Valuable Player awards during the final. A seasoned professional, the industry titan has now begun focusing his attention on his legacy — his children — competing in the prestigious Gauntlet of Polo series alongside his son, Adolfo “Poroto” Cambiaso Jr. in 2021 and 2022.

Born into a family of horse lovers and polo players, California native Santi Torres was riding horses as soon as he could walk. Torres started playing peewee polo at age four. By age eight, he was caring for and riding a full string. By age 11, Torres had gone pro. In the years since, he has continued to perfect his craft and add to his trophy collection, winning the Pacific Coast Open in 2012. As a former Valiente competitor, Torres won the C.V. Whitney Cup, the Joe Barry Memorial, the USPA Gold Cup and the Ylvisaker Cup with the powerhouse organization. Most recently, Torres competed in the 2023 Gauntlet of Polo series with Dazos and represented the U.S. against Ireland in the international conclusion to the National Polo Center’s inaugural season.

Adolfo “Poroto” Cambiaso Jr., son of polo legend Adolfo Cambiaso, is following in his father’s footsteps — literally. The younger Cambiaso emerged on the high-goal scene in 2021 when he competed alongside his father in the Gauntlet of Polo for the first time, winning the USPA Gold Cup and the U.S. Open Polo Championship with Scone. In 2022, Cambiaso picked up another American win in the Pacific Coast Open in California, as well as his first Argentine double, winning the Hurlingham Open and the Argentine Open with his father’s organization, La Dolfina. Now rated at 10 goals, Cambiaso competed in his third Gauntlet of Polo season with Scone in 2023 — this time, without his father at his side — and led his team to victory to take home the sixth prestigious title of his career, the USPA Gold Cup.

Born in Argentina, Hilario Ulloa grew up immersed in the sport thanks to his father, world-renowned trainer Carlos “Polito” Ulloa. Reaching the elusive 10-goal status in 2017, Hilario Ulloa has remained among the top players in the world, competing on the global stage in the United States, England and Argentina. A four-time-winner of the U.S. Open Polo Championship and the C.V. Whitney Cup, Ulloa and Park Place have dominated the winter season at the National Polo Center in recent years.

Facundo Pieres is modern-day, professional polo personified. Born into a family of polo players and descended from polo great Gonzalo Pieres, Facundo grew up playing polo in Argentina with his brothers Gonzalo “Gonzalito” and Nicolas “Nico” Pieres, as well as cousin Pablo “Polito” Pieres. Facundo Pieres holds an extraordinary record in Argentina, England and the U.S. Of all his accomplishments, the most notable may be Pieres’ 2019 Gauntlet of Polo victory, when he led Pilot to capture all the tournaments in the series in its inaugural year. To this day, Pilot remains the only team to do so. Most recently, in December, Pieres won the 2023 Argentine Open with La Natividad

These are just a few of the amazing athletes competing at NPC this season, which kicks off with the Continental Cup (Dec. 31 to Jan. 7). The Continental Cup is also the start of the NPC 16-Goal Championship series, which consists of four qualifying tournaments — the Joe Barry Memorial (Jan. 11-28), the Ylvisaker Cup (Jan. 26 to Feb. 24), the Iglehart Cup and the Outback Cup — with each winning team advancing to the NPC 16-Goal Championship, set for April 10-14. The season’s most anticipated competition, the Gauntlet of Polo series, runs from February to April and features top teams and players from around the world as they contest for the coveted C.V. Whitney Cup, USPA Gold Cup and U.S. Open Polo Championship trophies. Also at NPC this season is the U.S. Open Women’s Polo Championship during the month of February and the debut of the National President’s Cup, which will unite some of the most talented 8-goal teams in the nation when it is held April 12-21.

The Top Level Of High-Goal Polo In The United States

The Top Level Of High-Goal Polo In The United States The World Polo League At The Grand Champions Polo Club Showcases The Only 26-Goal Polo Played Outside Of Argentina

By Sharon Robb

The World Polo League, the only 26-goal polo played outside of Argentina, opens its sixth season with a star-studded lineup at the Grand Champions Polo Club in February.

The season-opening All-Star Challenge Tournament kicks off the high-goal season Feb. 6-25 on the club’s well-manicured fields. The All-Star Challenge is the first of four grass tournaments. The others are the Feb. 22 to March 10 Founders Cup, the March 6-23 Palm Beach Open and the March 20 to April 13 Triple Crown.

The WPL then moves to the sands of Miami Beach for the April 19-21 Beach Polo World Cup, and the popular WPL Polo Pride also returns.

The star-studded lineup showcases some of the sport’s best players in the world. Argentine 10-goalers Pablo MacDonough and Jeta Castagnola head the lineup. The pair are coming off winning the 130th Argentine Open with their La Natividad team, capturing the final with a 13-10 win over Adolfo Cambiaso-led La Dolfina Saudi.

MacDonough — ranked as a 10-goaler in Argentina, Great Britain and the United States — earned the Gonzalo Heguy Most Valuable Player Award at the Argentine Open. The crowd-pleaser has won 12 Argentine Opens, 10 Hurlingham Opens and 12 Tortugas Opens. He is one of the most dominant players in the World Polo League and never ceases to amaze fans with his ability.

Castagnola won the Javier Novillo Astrada Award as top scorer of the tournament with 38 goals. Ranked third in the World Polo Tour rankings, Castagnola is one of the sport’s rising stars. He is ranked at 10 goals in Argentina and 9 goals in Great Britain and the U.S. He has won two Argentine Opens and Tortugas Opens, and one British Open, Hurlingham Open and Queens Cup.

The pair will be joined by 10-goaler Juan Martin Nero, a member of the La Dolfina Saudi team. Other top players are former 10-goaler Gonzalito Pieres, Alejandro Novillo Astrada and hometown favorite Nic Roldan, the second highest ranked American player at 8 goals.

The popular World Polo League, with its world-class horses and fast, wide-open play, was created by club owners Melissa and Marc Ganzi. It filled a void left when the United States Polo Association, the sport’s governing body, announced it was lowering high-goal polo to 18-22 goals and would not have 26-goal polo.

The Ganzis wanted to make sure that the world-class league preserved the highest level of polo and its rich tradition in the U.S. The WPL has its own set of simpler, fan-friendly rules to improve the flow of the game, and world-class umpires including top-ranked Gaston Dorignac.

In addition to the successful WPL, four other high-goal tournaments will be held: the Feb. 1-11 Sterling Cup (20 goals), the Feb. 1 to March 31 USPA Butler Handicap 18-22 Goal, the Feb. 7-24 $100,000 World Cup (0-40 goals), and the Feb. 27 to March 10 Santa Rita Abierto (20 goals).

The January through April winter season offers a full array of tournaments for players at every level. Men, women and junior players have a choice of competing in 6-, 8-, 12- and 16-goal leagues, in addition to the weekly Polo School Women’s League, WCT Finals, several junior tournaments under the Polo Training Foundation umbrella and special events.

The Polo School Women’s League, created by Alina Carta and Melissa Ganzi, is for all level female players with an emphasis on beginners and intermediate players. Held every Wednesday from January through April, games are held with an umpire.

Grand Champions will host several spectacular social events including “Chukkers and Cocktails at Sunset” for all levels of polo players and guests.

The various tournaments attract a large, international field of players from all corners of the world, including Argentina, Spain, India, Mexico, New Zealand, Costa Rica, Canada, Ecuador, Brazil, Switzerland, France, England, Germany, Uruguay, Azerbaijan, South Africa, Venezuela, Chile and England.

The Grand Champions Polo Club and the Santa Rita Polo Farm is the largest and most unique private 102-acre polo facility in Wellington with 212 stalls in nine self-contained barns, two exercise tracks, five climate-controlled tack rooms, a vet room, staff quarters, guest house and four polo fields with state-of-the-art underground irrigation, a short work arena and stick-and-ball fields.

Wellington-based CTV Sports, formerly ChukkerTV, is live streaming the entire winter season, the only club in the world to do so, with Dale Schwetz and Jan-Erik Franck calling the action.

The Grand Champions Polo Club and Santa Rita Polo Farm expert staff can customize a complete playing experience, including horses, pros and certified umpires, in addition to lessons and practice sessions as part of its Polo On Demand program at the turnkey facility. With Polo On Demand, there is an opportunity to tailor an experience to one’s skills and schedule, along with learning from top pros to bring out the best in a player or team.

The Polo School, a nonprofit organization and stand-alone USPA club, is dedicated to teaching polo to all ages, particularly grassroots youth. Its mission is to provide individuals opportunities in polo at every economic and ability level. The Polo School operates January through May for the winter season.

Unbridled Equestrian Pursuits

Unbridled Equestrian Pursuits Michael And Natalie Nicodema Are On A Quest To Transform Wellington’s Legal And Wellness Landscape


By Vyla Carter and Olivia Parr

In Wellington, where equestrian pursuits reign supreme, a dynamic duo has emerged as transformative figures, seamlessly blending the worlds of law, wellness and the love of horses.

Michael and Natalie Nicodema, a husband-and-wife team with more than three decades of shared history, have not only made indelible marks in their respective fields but have also left an enduring impact here in Wellington.

Michael Nicodema is a seasoned trial lawyer and principal shareholder at Greenberg Traurig PA’s West Palm Beach office. With a career spanning 30 years, he has earned a reputation as a versatile trial attorney, tackling everything from intellectual property cases to civil rights issues. However, it was his keen observation of the underserved legal needs within the equestrian industry that led him to initiate a groundbreaking venture.

“Two and a half years ago, during COVID-19, I finally decided, ‘You know what, I’m going to see if this is going to work,” Michael recalled. “So, I got together more than 50 top lawyers in my firm to cover all the practice areas you might think an equestrian, or someone in the polo world, or even the racing world, would need for their everyday business ventures.”

This initiative resulted in the formation of Greenberg Traurig’s Equine Industry Group, a legal sanctuary catering to the intricate needs of the equestrian world. Michael emphasizes the group’s vast expertise, covering areas crucial to equestrians, polo enthusiasts and racing aficionados alike.

As part of one of America’s largest and most prestigious law firms, the Equine Industry Group serves as a legal advocate for those deeply embedded in the equine sector.

Michael sheds light on common topics within the industry, ranging from transactional concerns like horse import taxes to litigation issues tied to buying and selling horses. “Whether it’s environmental, corporate, the sale of a barn or a dispute over a horse sale, you gotta know horses. And we know horses,” he said.

Beyond his legal endeavors, Michael has embraced the world of podcasting, providing a unique lens into the equestrian lifestyle. “That’s when I started thinking about a podcast,” he said. “And I started doing it, very low tech, by cell phone, interviewing the guests at really nice equestrian venues, the polo club or Global… Now we’re going to start doing some at Wellington International.”

One of Michael’s favorite podcast episodes delves into the unexpected synergy between law and cuisine.

“I think my favorite podcast was with Tim Gannon, the co-founder of Outback Steakhouse. Great polo man and a great entrepreneur,” he recalled. “It was such a free and easy discussion. One of the things we talked about was how Tim invented the Bloomin’ Onion, which is one of the signature appetizers on the Outback Steakhouse menu. Whatever topic I teed up, Tim’s words and stories had me 100 percent locked in. I could have talked with him for hours.”

While Michael extends legal support to the equestrian community, Natalie pursues her lifelong passion for riding horses while making significant contributions to community wellness. From her early days riding with clubs to owning and showing several horses throughout her riding career, Natalie found solace and balance in her connection with horses.

Inspired by a year-long illness, she transitioned from nursing to establishing her health and wellness coaching practice. “I’ve always been fascinated by health and wellness,” Natalie said.

Her illness became the catalyst for exploring alternative paths to well-being beyond conventional medicine. Now, through coaching, she assesses individuals’ lifestyles, environments and diets, guiding them to optimal health. Natalie’s coaching has not only transformed lives but also extended the lifespans of those with low life expectancies due to cancer.

“Being a champion or mental toughness comes through the body first,” Natalie advises equestrians. “If your body’s not strong because you slept badly, you didn’t feed it, you’re injured, you’re not going to feel that confidence that you need to be that winner in the ring.”

Her engagement in the horse world has been a conduit for change. “Every time you help somebody, you’re really helping a multitude of other people,” she said, emphasizing the symbiotic relationship between equestrians and their horses, and urging riders to prioritize their well-being to be true partners with their equine counterparts.

Whether in the legal arena or the stables, Michael and Natalie commit themselves to the Wellington and horse-loving communities.

“We are just so passionate about the industry and horses, and we want to do everything we can to make sure that horses in equestrian sports are treated with the respect, dignity, love and care they deserve because for horse lovers like us, they are very, very special,” Michael said.

In the narrative of the Nicodemas, law and wellness converge in a harmonious blend, enriching the Wellington community and echoing the timeless bond between humans and horses. Through their unwavering dedication, this power couple continues to shape the narrative of Wellington’s legal and wellness landscapes, leaving an indelible imprint on the community they hold dear.

Times Change, But Memories Remain Forever

Times Change, But Memories Remain Forever
Wellington Pioneer John Herring On How A Fledgling Community Came Together To Build The Original Wellington Boys & Girls Club, Now Slated For Demolition

Story by John Herring  |  Photos by Frank Koester

This issue, Wellington The Magazine launches our year-long Wellington History feature series. This series will include the first-hand recollections of early Wellington pioneers who built the community we enjoy today. First up is longtime Wellington resident John Herring with his recollections of the creation of the original Boys & Girls Club on South Shore Blvd. Opening in 1986, it was the first facility offering organized recreational programs to young residents of the fledgling Wellington community. More than 10 years ago, the Boys & Girls Club moved to a new facility, and the original building that Herring and his pioneer compatriots struggled to bring into existence is in the process of being torn down, to make way for a new sports training facility.

When I heard that the old Boys & Girls Club building on South Shore Blvd. was going to be torn down and the park renovated, it was with a nostalgic mindset that I wanted to write something down to preserve the history and value that place had in the makings of Wellington. Once it is gone, I hope there can be a place for the pictures and the stories that happened right there on that site.

Let’s go back to the early days of Wellington. It was designed to almost be a retirement community. Golf courses, clubhouses and tennis courts were the norm. The Acme Improvement District was the governing entity, run by the developer and its managers — and they had a problem. Young married folks were buying right along with the retirees. And the young folks very quickly outnumbered the old folks. Meanwhile, there were no ball fields or soccer fields. In fact, there were no public recreation locations at all; there were not even any schools in Wellington yet.

With about 1,500 folks living here, and sales going wild, kids were everywhere. And they were playing soccer on polo fields and baseball in empty lots. Parents were the organizers, the field maintenance crews, the keeper of all sports gear, and collection agency for all fees to play tee-ball. No one was in charge. So, through the Rotary, Exchange and Lions clubs, all fundraisers were focused on these kids’ needs.

Then Gould Florida, the developer, sold the land to the Vadia family, known as Corepoint. The first thing they did was construct entrances as you see them today. Fountains defining the entity “Wellington.” In the meantime, a not-for-profit was formed called YAW, which stood for Youth Activities of Wellington. That became the clearing house for charity funds, sports fees and management control of the burgeoning sporting activities for local youth. However, it was struggling to keep up with growth and needs.

In short, conversations were on the table with Acme about this problem before the Vadia family arrived. So, when the fountains went up, many asked, why can’t they (Corepoint, the new developer) spring for a building and ball fields? It is in their best interest if they want to sell houses! Luckily, the Vadias and Corepoint’s George de Guardiola were baseball born and bred. They loved baseball and kids’ sports.

First there was a need for land, then a building to store and keep equipment, parking, maintenance, upkeep and all that stuff. The result? Acme, the Palm Beach County Commission, the developer, YAW and almost the entire community sat down and solved the problem.

In the agreement, the county donated the land, Acme would own it and maintain it on the tax rolls, and partner with the developer to build it and pay for it.

But the caveat was the Vadias were requiring a nationally recognized entity to be the manager of the programs. Their directive was that there had to be a solid organization behind this investment. So given that task, we embarked on investigating all programs that fit that bill. It came down to the YMCA or the Boys Club of America. However, seeing that the Vadia boys, Ricardo and Alberto, and George de Guardiola from Corepoint, all grew up at the Boys Club in Miami, it made an obvious first choice.

What is now the South Shore ball fields at Wellington’s Community Park, formerly where the Boys & Girls Club used to be, had its first concept of becoming a reality. I was tasked with making it happen, as a volunteer, and as a member of several Acme committees. I was chair of the Operations Review Committee that set the assessment rates based on spending and budgets, so whatever happened here expense wise, I was accountable.

Next, we needed to design the facility. A young architect named Tom Leiptian was convinced to design the land and building for very little. H&T, Harry Rusbridge and Jim Teets, were building polo fields right across the street. They OKed us donating fuel and paying in beer to operators to clear the land. (No permits were required back then… It was county property controlled by Acme and no one was asking!) The building grew three times larger than we were told to make it, and away we went. We made that facility for about one-tenth what it should have cost. I am recalling about $400,000. Obviously, it was an easy sell, with all of us doing the right thing for the right reasons.

At opening, it was decided it would be a Boys & Girls Club, one if not the first in Florida, joining the downtown Boys Club. As a matter of fact, the daughter of Mary Brink, who worked for Gould, was issued member 001. My son, John Korbet Herring, was member 002. A girl, then a boy. That was significant!

That building entertained local youth through its programs, run by none other than Victor Rivera. If folks only knew how many innings were played on those fields, how many first-time home runs, fly balls caught, runs scored and friendships made between parents and kids alike. Victor was an avid environmentalist who taught kids the meaning of preserving our canals and waterways, and it was he who spent time with kids cleaning canals of debris. Children did their homework there and got help when they struggled with math.

The early days of Wellington looked nothing like it does today. It was programs like this — with the developer, government and private volunteers working together — that made the difference, and I know we did make a difference in how Wellington turned out today. I am very proud to say, I was a small part of making this happen. It will be sad to see our building gone, but it is progress. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County and across Florida and the nation are thriving and continue making a difference in the lives of the children of today, and the leaders of tomorrow.


50 Over 50 Project 2023

50 Over 50 Project 2023 Capturing The Radiance Of 50 Remarkable Women Over 50

It is an enduring truth that beauty transcends time. Renowned Wellington photographer Dannielle Judd has breathed new life into the words “beauty is timeless” in a novel way through her 50 Women Over 50 project. “It was high time to initiate a dialogue on the elegance of aging and embrace the confidence that comes with being at ease in our own skin,” said Judd, a Wellington resident.

Thus began a transformative journey with 50 women, all united by the shared experience of surpassing 50 years. Wellington The Magazine is once again proud to support Judd on this unique celebration of resilience, sagacity and allure.

Though a seasoned photographer for years, Judd’s ardor for photography as a profession took root when she turned 48. Despite having amassed a trove of photographs and harboring a perpetual creative urge, the leap to a full-fledged career took its time. While Judd wasn’t the first pioneer of the 50 Over 50 project, the moment she encountered the concept, she recognized it as her calling. As a woman over 50, she was acutely aware of the prevalent stereotypes surrounding aging and sought to debunk them by showcasing how so many women hit their stride at age 50.

Determined to capture the diversity in nationality, personality and profession, Judd launched this distinctive photography project. Recognizing that many women spend their lives defined by roles as wives or mothers, she utilized social media to invite interested participants to complete a questionnaire.

“Following conversations and a comprehensive explanation of the process, we proceeded to book wardrobe consultations. Participants came into my studio and had access to my ‘Dream Wardrobe Collection,’ which boasts more than 200 dresses and gowns, accompanied by a plethora of accessories for their photo shoots,” Judd explained. “Then came the exciting part — the photo shoot! Typically, the ladies wear three to five outfits during their sessions.”

For many participants, this experience proved to be a metamorphic journey. Initial low expectations often transformed into radiant confidence after hair and makeup sessions. “Their inner light shines through; you can see them exuding confidence. It’s truly inspirational for me as a woman and a photographer to share this experience with them,” Judd said.

In an effort to foster trust in the process, Judd shared her own experiences with clients. Many had been eagerly awaiting the chance to shine, challenging the notion that women over age 50 are slowing down. The project spanned approximately 12 months, and the outcomes were beyond measure.

Judd, however, never doubted its success. “These women fed my soul,” she reflected, attributing her sustained enthusiasm to their inspiring stories. “With each lady being so unique, I quickly realized that creating customized sessions would be a no-brainer.”

One of the inaugural participants, Amy, a breast cancer survivor, set the tone with her infectious energy, and this year’s models all had amazing stories to share as well. Catherine Carcioppolo loved the experience, adding what a wonderful photographer Judd is in “capturing the essence of 50 Women Over 50 and changing their whole life through photographing them and showing that they are beautiful.”

Judd, reviewing the images, marveled at the beauty, wisdom, creativity and uniqueness that each woman brought to her studio.

When the inaugural project was documented in 2021, Judd eagerly anticipated the sequel — and another round of 50 Over 50 for 2023 was born. “It was such an amazing experience,” she exclaimed, adding that she couldn’t wait to get started again.

While some participants entered without a clear vision of how they wanted to be photographed, others brought grand ideas. “I love empowering women,” Judd said. “They are more than clients; they’re my friends, and some even feel like sisters. The relationships formed are truly invaluable. I believe that as women, we should support, uplift, embrace and cheer for each other. Together, we can achieve anything.”

As a woman approaching 56 in January, Judd wanted to convey that women are inherently beautiful at every age. “Beauty knows no bounds,” she emphasized. “You deserve to be celebrated and honored.”

The unveiling of the 2023 year-long 50 Over 50 project took place with a celebration on Oct. 28 at the Mall at Wellington Green. This year, Judd partnered with two local charities that do amazing work to help children in crisis — Grandma’s Place in Royal Palm Beach and Speak Up for Kids Palm Beach County. A silent auction was held with 100 percent of the proceeds being divided between the two charities. “This is one of the highlights of doing a project like this,” Judd said.

Judd recently announced the exciting news that she has launched a new 40 Over 40 portrait series. She looks forward to photographing these women and featuring them in a gallery exhibition as well, sharing their stories, which will inspire and celebrate the next chapter of their lives.
