Embrace the elegance of a unique equine experience in a remote haven of natural beauty located in the heart of horse country: Marion County, FL. Where horses graze on acres of emerald green pastures sprawling beneath towering Spanish Moss-laden oak trees, this intimate all-inclusive retreat offers one of Ocala’s most sophisticated equestrian experiences.
That’s the BG Polo & Equestrian Resort experience.
Located just a short drive from Orlando, the 10,000-square-foot, seven-bedroom Main House features classically designed accommodations with stunning views of the surrounding paddocks, while three luxurious three-bedroom Cottages and three-bedroom Farmhouse offer the ultimate in privacy and comfort. Guests can rent the entire property for a wedding, family reunion or corporate retreat or just the main house, cottages or Farmhouse while enjoying all of the amenities. The well-appointed equestrian facility includes immaculate stables with 70 stalls, three newly renovated barns, a 38,000-square-foot covered lighted arena, an outside arena for instruction and demonstrations, multiple paddocks, long and short term horse lodging, and accommodations for RV hook-ups.
With support from the equestrian training staff, explore and enjoy the adjacent 110-mile long Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway or indulge in taste of polo led by international polo veteran Marcos Bignoli who oversees the Ocala Polo Club* located at the adjacent Florida Horse Park, which is home to a turnkey trail riding program. Afterward, reward yourself with a relaxing swim and spa massage, and a glass of your favorite wine by the pool, before settling in for a sumptuous gourmet dinner prepared by a private chef. (*BG Polo & Equestrian is a collection of four equestrian teaching and competition polo centers for all skill levels in Florida, Canada and Argentina. Renowned polo player and British Open finalist Max Secunda oversees the facility in Vero Beach, Florida.)
For children, there are plenty of offerings. In addition to horseback riding and mountain biking on miles of protected trails, a backyard video arcade, waterpark and swimming pool, diesel train and carousal provide hours of fun. Off property activities include zip lining, golf, tennis and fishing as well as spectating at the world-famous Ocala Breeders horse auction. It’s also a perfect getaway to combine with the family fun of nearby Disney World and Ocala’s Silver Springs Adventure Park and the ideal setting for the perfect Ocala Florida wedding, extended family reunion or corporate retreat.
