Located in central Florida, Black Prong offers a focused equine training environment and luxurious, peaceful equine accommodations conveniently located near the competition facilities of HITS Ocala and the World Equestrian Center.
For equine and cycling trail enthusiasts, Black Prong offers an expansive facility surrounded on three sides by the 53,000 acre Goethe State Forest with its hundreds of miles of trails that are ideal for horseback riding and cycling. Luxuriously appointed cottages and premium cobblestone RV pads (some covered), all with 50 AMP electric, sewer and water, make living onsite with your horse an all inclusive experience. In addition to luxury accommodations and stabling, Black Prong also offers facility rentals for horse shows, corporate and private events, weddings, seminars, and canine competition as well as community passes for local residents.
With nine rustic single-bedroom cottages, luxury tiny homes, airstream trailers, and full hook-up RV pads our guests can find a home away from home to match their unique style, whether you plan to stay for the season or just a weekend. For equestrians, there are several stabling options to bring along their equine companions, including stabling attached to all of our cottages so you can vacation right alongside your horse.
