The Allure of Horse Farms in Ocala Florida
Marion County’s reputation for equestrian excellence can be traced back to 1953 with a sickly Thoroughbred colt named Needles. Suffering from several broken ribs and pneumonia, the future Kentucky Derby winner had the deck stacked against him from birth. It wasn’t just his health; at the time, Florida-bred racehorses were so ill-regarded that state racing rules gave them a five-pound weight allowance when openly competing.
However, once he was healthy enough to train, Needles proved everyone wrong and put Ocala, FL on the map. His Kentucky Derby win in 1956 was the first for a Florida-bred racehorse and Ocala, Marion County, and North Central Florida have been known as the Horse Capital of the World ever since.
The legacy of Needles and his now-legendary Bonnie Heath Farm continue to this day with Ocala’s diverse equine culture. In Marion County, you’ll find thoroughbred trainers and breeders making their home here alongside hunter-jumpers, polo players, competitive carriage drivers, trail riders, and all types of breeders.
Marion County also plays host to a variety of unforgettable equestrian events every year, including Horse Shows In the Sun, Live Oak International Combined Driving and Show Jumping, Southeast Pro Rodeo, and more that cater to almost every breed and discipline. With a wealth of equine resources, built on a long tradition of equestrian championship, the Ocala-Marion County region is a true home for horse people from all walks of life. It’s the perfect place to find your dream horse farm!
