Insider`s Tour of Ocala`s Horse Country. Get "Behind the Gates" and get an exclusive look behind the scenes of 3 locations to get up close to horses of different breeds, disciplines and meet the people train and care for them. Marion Country is rich in history, 1700 Sq Miles! Between the farm stops, we will note points of interest, and facts about different farms, disciplines during the drive. Each stop is about 20 to 30 Mins with a lot of walking. An avid horsewoman and and long time resident of Ocala`s Horse Country, Karen shares her enthusiasm, knowledge and ability to enter the inner circles of some of the most beautiful farms in the area. M-SAT. Tours are by reservation only. Once a day, start 8:45 to approx 12. This is a small "Boutique" trip with not more than 17 people. Children welcome but, please' THIS TOUR IS NOT SUITABLE FOR SMALL CHILDREN. You will see this in some of our reviews. We go behind the scenes, misbehaving kids are a danger to horses and people at our stops.

Loved touring the amazing horse farms in Ocala! Rode in a air conditioned van and got to feed and pet the beautiful horses and donkeys. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the farms and area. I highly recommended this tour

This tour was 3.5 hrs of beautiful ranches. We toured 3 ranches and had wonderful tour guides. The group was kept to 6 people per van. The horses were beautiful and we wee told history of the horses etc. I would recommend this tour.

My apologies, we have discontinued afternoon tours to the farms we visit. Afternoons became too disruptive with feed time, breeding times. Farm owner`s personal schedules. -Karen Grimes, Owner
