The Ocala area has 1200 horse farms. There are hundreds on the market at any given time, but if you are a horse person, you know that no two are alike. The requirements you have for an Ocala horse property may differ greatly from another equestrian enthusiast. Pasture, cross fencing, barn style, round pen, riding ring, automatic watering, shade, and trail access may be more important to the serious horse person than the amenities of the home itself. So we suggest, when selecting a realtor, make sure he or she is a) a veteran horse person, b) lives on an Ocala horse property themselves.
Whether it’s the love of competition or enjoying a leisurely ride through our nature trails, the history that comes with a long legacy of champions being born, bred and broken in Ocala/Marion County makes it a true equestrian escape.
In 2007, Ocala/Marion County was officially named the “Horse Capital of the World™,” a testament to the County’s unique involvement in all things equestrian and its record of producing some of the finest champions in the sport. With a beautiful, mild climate all year long and soil rich with limestone calcium for strong bones, Ocala horse properties are home to more horses than anywhere else in the country.
Aside from producing some of the biggest names in racing, Ocala/Marion County is also home to national and international equestrian events and competitions, including the HITS Ocala Winter Circuit, Live Oak International, Ocala Breeders’ Sale, the Florida Horse Park, and the new World Equestrian Center. From renowned thoroughbreds to jumpers, drivers, hunters and show horses, our County is rich with equestrian legends.
The U.S. has 9.2 million horses.
6 million Americans work in the industry.
2 million Americans own horses.
The horse industry in the U.S. generates $39 billion annually.
The industry pays $1.9 billion in taxes.
More than 70 percent of horse owners live in communities of less than 50,000.
