OCALA, FL - HORSE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD
Ocala, FL….. a name that evokes strong images of rolling green pastures lined with undulating board fences, populated with rainbow herds of chestnuts, grays, blacks and bays; a full spectrum of equine colors. Welcome to the Horse Capital of the World and Young’s Paso Fino Ranch.
The Ranch is located approximately 3 1/2 miles west of I-75, on State Road 326, in the middle of horse country. This twenty acre spread was purchased in 1987 by Barbara and the late Arthur Young and over the years the ranch has grown to become an Ocala, FL institution. Currently the ranch is home to 21 horses. They also board horses. A few hand-picked stallions and carefully selected broodmares carrying the bloodlines of such Paso Fino greats as Bochica, Resorte II, Resorte III, Resorte IV, Pistolero, Desvelo, Gaucho and Pijao provide Young’s Ranch a firm foundation to build future show champions. Young’s continues to breed and foal future champions and promote the Paso Fino horse for show or pleasure. The ranch is a working ranch and offers the following activities and services;
