UNITY, There is
And with more people united for one goal, comes new pos-sibilities, new partnerships, and new opportunities. A united and communicating equine industry means more attention, stronger positioning, enhanced marketing initiatives and a more uniﬁed voice on issues that can affect our horses, our businesses and our quality of life. The Ocala Horse Alliance is a new organization that is uniting ALL aspects of the horse industry in Marion County. The newly formed association will be creating a ﬁve-year Strategic Plan for the equine industry... and we want everyone’s input into the plan. It’s our future.
We are United by the Horse
Whether you breed it, ride it, braid it, shoe it, dress it, feed it, house it, show it, train it, drive it, treat it, ship it, trail it, write about it, lease it, judge it, appraise it, massage it, photograph it, promote it, whisper to it, or just love it... you are an integral part of the horse industry. For just $10 you can be a member of The Ocala Horse Alliance and begin to socialize, make new connections, explore vast partnerships, be a part of industry marketing initiatives, and avail yourself of educational seminars and programs. The Ocala Horse Alliance is “Giving Spurs to the Ocala Horse Industry”. You’ll want to be part of this new association!
You’ll want to be part of this new association! Ocala often calls itself the “Horse Capital of the World”. Given the size, diversity, scope of equine activities and the unique representation of a spectrum of breeds and disciplines, Ocala clearly has rights to the title. Now, there is a unifying entity to harness the collective power of this diverse industry to help grow, educate, unify and promote the horse industry in Marion County. The Ocala Horse Alliance (OHA) is the newly formed organization that will champion this effort. After conducting a market condition analysis, the Leadership Group was formed to begin to address a unifying, growth and advocacy impact effort for the equine industry. The OHA Leadership Group is comprised of key stakeholders from various sections of the horse industry including breeders, trainers, trail riders, discipline representatives, manufacturers, feed companies, therapeutic riding, horse rescue, elected ofﬁcials and numerous other groups representing the diversity of the horse industry in Marion County. The OHA is now positioned to launch the new organization and create a ﬁve-year strategic plan designed to unify, promote, educate and grow the horse industry in Ocala.
