“Horse Capital of the World” Tour in Ocala

During the Ocala farm tour, expect a beautiful drive in a Mercedes or Ford van through the heart of horse country, with stops at three locations of approximately 30 minutes each. Throughout the drive, our guides give a background on Ocala’s history. The conversation ranges from why fences are painted black, to Ocala’s rich lime rock base, to how Scotch Tape and Campbell Soup have a lot to do with the development of Florida’s horse industry.

You then see what one of only four major thoroughbred centers in the world is like. Marion County produced American Pharoah, Triple Crown Winner of 2015, Nyquist, winner of the 2016 Kentucky Derby, and other famous horses.

The group’s horse experience can range from people that have never touched a horse in their lives to professionals. You enjoy very close encounters with horses of all disciplines and breeds. Depending on the time of year, you might be sniffed by curious foals, watch potential Kentucky Derby favorites thunder down the track, get nudged for more carrots by a retired earner of $2.8M, or stand in awe of a magnificent stallion.
