The cover artwork was designed by Sally Chapman of the Chapman Collection and depicts the equine family owned by OHP. These horses are not just our companions; they are champions in their own right, having competed in some of the world’s most prestigious three-day events. From the thrilling jumps at Burghley, to the challenging courses of Pau, Maryland, Luhmühlen, Aachen, Boekelo, and Kentucky — each horse has a tale of bravery and excellence.

Horse Farms Forever Celebrates Halt of Coastal Connector

Preserving and protecting the natural resources in Marion County, which is famous for its flourishing equestrian industry, is a passionate commitment shared by the entire team at Ocala Horse Properties.

The recent opposition was voiced by Ocala residents in reaction to the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) proposed Coastal Connector, which threatened to cut through the heart of horse country. Ocala Horse Properties (OHP) banded together with other concerned citizens and Ocala farm owners to raise their voices at the county and state level.
