Golden Ocala’s Equestrian Community Offers Finest Amenities
If you’re not an equestrian, you probably won’t understand. It’s the majesty of the horse, the quiet nobility, the gentle brawn, the humble bravado. The passion for horses comes from deep within – an ancient bond, an ethereal, electric connection to something wild beyond ourselves.
We at the Golden Ocala Golf & Equestrian Club have a good grasp on this sentiment. That’s why we offer our members the finest amenities for an equestrian community this side of the swaggering Old West.
Golden Ocala Golf & Equestrian Club is the place for horse lovers. Here a few reasons why:
- A 20-stall horse barn
- Covered round pen
- Large jumping arena with new footing and separate dressage arena
- Jumping ring
- Large grass paddocks
- Climate-controlled tack room
Golden Ocala Sits At The Center of the Horse Capital of the World
But there are more reasons to take up residency here in order to embrace the golden equestrian provisions. Golden Ocala makes its home in the heart of Central Florida’s horse country. This area of the Sunshine State is designated the Horse Capital of the World, and we dedicate ourselves to preserving this gorgeous gated community as an equestrian wonderland. Bridle trails weave through rolling hills and mighty oaks from the vantage of our state-of-the-art Equestrian Center.
Behold exquisite equestrian elegance with private barn suites and the opportunity to rent the entire barn. This is a place for our equestrian members to board and care for their horses. Our experienced staff provides excellent care and makes a wide range of services available.
Human-Horse Bond Profoundly Unique
Although the human-horse bond dates back thousands of years as both species – the bi-pedal human more so – struggled to survive, some researchers say a unique relationship, a kind of interspecies “co-being,” is formed between equestrian and horse.
“As riders get to know their horses, they attune to them—they learn both mental and somatic (physical) ways of acting versus their partner,” said Anita Maurstad, PhD, professor and researcher in the Department of Cultural Sciences in the Tromso University Museum at the University of Tromso in Norway. “Horses, too, attune to their humans; thus, co-being is a good analytical concept for speaking about these aspects of the relationship.”
