alm trees, sunshine, and horses. It sounds like an equestrian’s perfect vacation, but for 21-year-old Eugenio Garza Pérez, it’s home. Based out of his family farm in Wellington, Florida, the young rider — currently ranked in the top 150 of the Longines FEI World Show Jumping Rankings — balances a successful career with his studies at the University of Miami.
Eugenio was born in Monterrey, Mexico and moved with his parents, Monica and David Garza, to Dallas, Texas when he was 15. There they bought a farm named El Milagro, or “the miracle.” The family soon relocated again to Wellington and purchased 10 acres of raw land on which to build their dream farm in the Palm Beach Point equestrian community.
