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.
