Kimberden consists of 56 acres of beautiful, lush, double fenced paddocks shaded by Ocala’s magnificent live oak trees. This 50 stall facility offers 14x14 stalls with an automatic fly spray system. The barns are meticulously landscaped, guaranteeing each horse a room with a view. Multiple show quality rings, grass derby fields, and miles of hacking paths make Kimberden a wonderful training center year round.
This picturesque setting is located in close proximity to both HITS Ocala and the new World Equestrian Center. Kimberden serves as a haven from winter weather with year round sunshine, the shade of our aged live oaks and palm trees galore. The resort like atmosphere creates an environment that is second to none for horse and rider.
Kimberden is also home to Ocala’s own Horse Country Carriage Co and Tours. From our renowned horse-drawn farm tours to our Holiday tours around Historic Downtown, or our memorable wedding services, our horses are a fixture in the Ocala community.
