The World Equestrian Center will provide a host of unique experiences for visitors to Ocala and Marion County, known as the “Horse Capital of the World.” The grand venue, in the final phase of construction, will feature indoor and outdoor arenas for equestrian and other events and is designed to offer exclusive amenities on-site.
Construction of the World Equestrian Center Ocala has been documented from the first shovel of soil moved on the property. It’s exciting and amazing to see the transformation of the facility on such a magnificent scale.
If visiting Ocala to compete in an event or just watch from the grandstand, enhance your time at the World Equestrian Center by enjoying a delicious meal at one of the premiere restaurants or shopping at any of the select boutiques opening on-site. The Expo Center will be available for event vendors to provide additional retail options.
Once arriving at the World Equestrian Center, there is little a visitor may need that is not available on site. It’s been designed to put everything at the fingertips of each visitor. As an example, a commissary will keep basic supplies on hand, along with an assortment of gourmet selections and seasonal goods. It will be a one-stop shop to make life easier for those traveling.
While spending time at the facility, relaxation is important to those who may be competing or just a spectator. Visitors can schedule an appointment at the salon, spa or fitness center via one of our vacation reservation agents to have a fresh haircut, massage, or make-over before hitting the ring to compete in a horse show.
Miles of bike lanes are incorporated throughout the picturesque property for visitors to also enjoy walking or running. A trail is available for casual horseback rides to take in the elegantly appointed grounds that make up the World Equestrian Center.
