Florida is not only an elderly retirement center - Florida Horse Park

According to the Star Banner, the current 500 acre public Horse Park in Ocola, Florida had a $13,000,000 impact to the local area last year. The local governing board seems interested in stepping up the development of this Horse Park, hoping to increase the local impact to close to $63,000,000 having about 40 events a year.
Looks like grandpa and grandma are exchanging their cues and pucks for chaps and spurs on their yearly retreat south. By the number of saddles we send to Florida, they are a serious contender in the arena.
