We came to Ocala mainly for this tour and we were not disappointed. Karen gives so much information and is just so friendly and knowledgeable. She's a horse owner herself and made sure everyone on the tour had their questions answered. We had a lot to view and learned a volume of information about the area's horse history and their beautiful farms. Don't miss this tour.
My family and I had a great time with these carrying ladies! They know everyone and everything there is to know about Ocala horse farms!
