Best-of-the Best Tour

Enjoy a guided insider’s tour of Ocala’s working farms and discover why Marion County is the
“Horse Capital of the World!”

Relax and let us take you on the Best-of-the-Best Tour. Your experience will include 3 stops with scenic views along pastoral oak-lined country roads. 

Depending on the day of the week, time of year, tours include a selection of the following:

  • Meet Retired Former Equine Champions
  • Watching Thoroughbreds in Training-Rail Side
  • Stud Farms
  • Newborn Foals
  • OBS Sales
  • Show Jumping
  • Dressage
  • Polo

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.
