Ocala is an unbeatable location for eventing, with great weather, exceptional footing, and multiple nearby events. In less than an hour’s drive, you can compete and spectate from beginner novice, to CCI ** and all the way up through advanced. Regularly offered schooling events run year round, making Ocala the perfect choice for both a newcomer to the sport and a seasoned competitor -and everyone in between.
It’s no wonder so many Olympians and 4 star competitors already call Ocala home. In addition, while most parts of the country are lucky to have a single cross country schooling facility, in Ocala there are too many to count. Combine the convenience with top notch veterinary and horseshoeing services, as well as plenty of tack and feed shops, and you’ll see why so many consider Ocala the ultimate rider’s paradise.
Ocala hosts USEF team training sessions, ICP workshops, and numerous clinics with eventing’s best, which are only a fraction of the constant “horsey” activity that make Ocala truly live up to its title as the “horse capital of the world.”
