Arenas, Barns, and Pastures in North/Central Florida

(Last Updated On: October 17, 2022)

I have been gathering quite a few pictures I have taken of different riding arenas, horse barns, and pastures in my area of North/Central Florida. Keep checking back here. I will be updating this regularly with new stuff. I show a lot of horse barn and pasture layouts with beautiful trees.

My neighbors Chris and Dale Dunn’s beautiful pasture.

I’m going to start with a funny comparison between my weedy pasture and my neighbors Chris and Dale Dunn’s gorgeous pasture. They also have equines to eat the grass. I must mow my pasture… leaving my very back pasture to grow the weeds that become flowers.

My Pasture vs. the Dunns’ Gorgeous Pasture in North/Central Florida

Below is a slideshow showing my pasture next to my neighbors’ pasture and how nice their pasture is next to mine, lol. Cute pictures of her equines, 2 minis, a donkey and a pinto. My dog, Emma, is also in a couple pictures. I have a lot of pictures I’ll post in the Animals category.

  • Emma at fence next to my neighbor's pasture
  • Teri's overflow pond in the front pasture.
  • My barn that we built when we moved in 2008. It was built to withstand 150mps winds.
  • Here's Jack! The Dunn's guard donkey.
  • Dunn's guard donkey, Jack's ears.
  • Tucker, one of the Dunn's mini's
  • The Dunn's two mini's at the fence.
  • My dog, Emma, standing next to my neighbor's, the Dunns.
  • Teri's front pasture. I used to have a small Dressage arena here. It was cool in the afternoon, but it also rained almost every afternoon in August-September in our area.

World Equestrian Center Arena in Ocala, Florida

The next gorgeous facility’s arena, barns, and pastures is at Everglades Equestrian in Miccanopy, Florida. This place is just 20 minutes from the World Equestrian Center in Ocala. It’s where my trainer, Kathy Daly, boards some of the horses in training (3-4, currently) that she has. I got these pictures when I took a trip there to watch her ride and take pictures. Most of these pictures came from my iPhone 13 – amazed at the quality! I’m taking my mirror-shutter camera next time. I had lost it in my house, lol.
