Welcome to R.O. Ranch

Experience R.O. Ranch

Visitors to the R.O. Ranch Equestrian Park will take home a wealth of memories in the many photographs and images taken in the park. The park offers a natural and cultural setting that exhibits the beauty and simplicity of North Central Florida.

Visitor Education Center

The theme of the park is set in the Florida "cracker" style of the 1920s. All of the buildings and facilities are reminiscent of that era with white board siding and tin roofs. The inspiring scenery at the park is like a step back in time. Visitors will experience the sights, smells, and sounds of the original Florida. The sight of cracker cows grazing in the flatwoods, the smell of flowering magnolias, the sounds of rustling cabbage palms, a horseback ride down one of the many trails offers the visitor time to reflect on the past and present-day lives.

 

Every aspect of the park will cater to horses and their owners. While other recreationalists are welcome, the facilities will be designed with the horse, the owner, and the environment in mind. The park is ideally located adjacent to 20,000 acres of public land that's open to horses.
