Ocala, Florida: Equestrian Farms and Historic Downtown in the Heart of Horse Country

Ocala is a charming city located in a region of central Florida known as “horse country.” As the name suggests, it’s an area marked by all things equine: sprawling horse farms, international polo matches, a horse-and-carriage tradition—there’s even a set of horse statues downtown. The local farms and training centers that dot the countryside have produced a number of award-winning thoroughbreds over the years, including Triple Crown winner Affirmed in 1978. At Florida Horse Park, you can watch Olympic-level competitions such as hunter/jumper and dressage events. Additionally, several ranches throughout the area offer guided horseback riding and even swimming with horses in the Ocklawaha River.

Other ways to explore the landscape range from canoeing down the waterways of the Ocala National Forest to taking a cruise on a glass-bottomed boat at the Silver Springs natural theme park. Take a stroll along Fort King Street in downtown Ocala to look at Queen Anne and art-deco buildings framed by blooming azaleas and dogwoods.
