Ocala Jockey Club

Training Center, Special Event and Wedding Venue in Marion County, Florida

(352) 591-1212

The 950-acre Ocala Jockey Club was developed in the early 1980s as a family oriented Thoroughbred horse farm community located on the rich soil of Marion County and reminiscent of Virginia's rolling hills. The Clubhouse was the centerpiece: known for stunning sunsets, great food, popular Sunday brunches, ambience and tranquil views over the farm in all directions.

Building on Thoroughbred History with Equestrian and Special Events and Real Estate


Today, owners Pavla and Erik Nygaard are building on the Thoroughbred tradition of the farm and creating a world class eventing center for international competitions, training and teaching.

Concept planning is underway for distinguished real estate development, a boutique hotel, retail village, and renewal of the Clubhouse to become a vibrant special events venue, spa, academy, restaurant, meeting center and a favorite place for weddings.

The vision for the Ocala Jockey Club is an acclaimed international destination resort and club for those who love horses, equestrian events, beautiful scenery and Florida.

The Ocala Jockey Club is planning the second edition of the International CIC3* 3-Day Event, to take place November 16-19, 2017.
