There has been a lot of work to get Ocaladale Farm and Red Horse Stables ready for business.
We have been in Florida for six months and it’s been all go to get a farm which was relatively disused for three years back into shape.
The ponies were all given time to relax and acclimatise to their new surroundings and are now all in work and enjoying life in the sun.
The humans haven’t had much time to relax or acclimatise however and have been fencing and mowing and repairing and renovating!
We have managed to sneak in the odd little trip out though, all in the name of research so that we can recommend some nice places for visitors to go in their non riding hours!
Florida is so much more than Disney and our favourite spots so far have been the beautiful Rainbow River Head Springs, Cedar Key with its old charm and delightful pelicans, and Crystal River with the wonderful Manatees.
