WELCOME TO ACADIA ACRES

At Acadia Acres, we encourage you to 'Rent, Ride and Relax"!  Come experience all that Ocala has to offer in a quiet setting that has one of the best locations in town!  You can literally see the new World Equestrian Center from the property, you can drive 10 minutes and be in downtown Ocala for great shopping and restaurants, or you can enjoy the magnificent Live Oak trees in the back yard while sitting in a hammock reading a book.  The new state of the art 10 stall barn will be sure to offer your equine friends comfort and coolness after a day of turnout in beautifully shaded paddocks. There is also a 100' x 200' riding arena with GGT footing for your equestrian workouts.  We strive to offer you a season in Ocala that makes it hard to leave!
