There’s a New Equestrian Sports Venue Coming to Ocala

And World Equestrian Center Ocala is it’s name.

Get ready Florida! The World Equestrian Center (WEC) is coming for you.

Hot off the press release, WEC has partnered with Golden Ocala Golf & Equestrian Club to develop a world-class equestrian sports venue in Central Florida. What’s the new venue to be dubbed, you ask? Why, the World Equestrian Center Ocala at Golden Ocala.

According to the release:

“More than 1,000 acres of land has recently been procured to establish the World Equestrian Center Ocala

and related 1-10 acre residential lots, which will allow equestrians who want to compete in Florida during the Winter season to combine the best of equestrian sports and country club living.”

Amenities at family owned and operated venue already include championship golf and tennis facilities, an equestrian center, full service fitness and spa experiences, luxury living, fine dining and more. All of which will be part of their National Membership package.

Again from the release:

“In celebration of its 30th Anniversary, Golden Ocala is offering a special membership for equestrians in 2016. This exclusive ‘National Membership’ waives the club’s initiation fee and gives equestrians the opportunity to gain access to state-of-the-art of equestrian amenities, as well as access to golf, tennis, spa services, the fitness center and fabulous dining and hospitality, all for just $2,000/per year.”

Only a select number of National Memberships will be available this year. Riders at this week’s World Equestrian Center Invitational get first crack at the “try-it-before-you-buy-it” offer.
