Debut date set for Ocala equestrian center

A new equestrian center coming to the horse capital of the world has set an opening date.

Ocala's World Equestrian Center is expected to open in January 2021. The site is currently under construction north of State Road 40, west of NW 80th Avenue, and south of US 27.

It will include restaurants, condos, and hotels and more than 4,000 acres of land. It'll also include 17 multipurpose outdoor arenas.

Marion County staff estimate the new project could generate hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue annually.
