Partners in Education

The Florida Horse Park offers an ever expanding array of educational programs covering everything from driving to basic horsemanship.

The Park is developing partnerships with a variety of educational institutions and equine professionals to offer classes and programs for both adults and children. If you or your organization are interested in getting involved with the Park, please email or submit your inquiry here.

Because Marion County has more horses per capita than anywhere else in the United States, we have a responsibility to the animals which contribute so much to our state's economy, our history, our national identity, and our quality of life to educate the next generation of horse men and women. The Florida Horse Park continues to seek opportunities for equine education for young people as well as continuing education for horse owners and caretakers.

Currently the Florida Horse Park is taking part in the following educational partnerships:

Central Florida Community College Equine Studies Program
The Park offers hands-on educational opportunities to students participating in the Equine Studies Program at CFCC. Currently, students use the Park to learn about event organizing, but there are plans to continue to develop the relationship so that the students can take advantage of the Park's facilities, knowledgeable volunteers, and staff.

The Florida Horse Park offers a variety of clinics and schooling days throughout the year. In the past, we have offered clinics by renowned equestrians including Silvio Mazzoni, Ann Gribbons, Clinton Anderson, and Gunnar Ostergaard among others.
