Horseback riding is also a favorite pastime of Abigail's children, but none have competed professionally. Mrs. Wexner even founded the event called the New Albany Classic, which was a day-long equestrian show at the Wexners' home, where riders competed for $125,000 in prize money. The event also served as a fundraiser for The Center for Family Safety and Healing. As of 2017, the New Albany Classic has been discontinued.

Les and Abigail Wexner share four kids.

The Wexners have four children: Sarah Wexner, Harry Wexner, Hannah Wexner, and David Wexner. Although the personal lives of the Wexner children are kept private, according to Reddit, a profile that appears to have been removed from the Wexner Foundation website reveals that Harry Wexner became an eighth grade language arts teacher.
