Beautiful facilities in Florida's horse country. 

Longstride Training Center is 40 acres dedicated to full service equine boarding and training. We are located in Morriston, northwest of Ocala. We break yearlings and train-to-race thoroughbreds for other trainers as well as maintain a Florida Racing Stable. All sets are accompanied to the track by a pony. We have spacious paddocks and fields with access to a swimming pool for lay-ups and rehabilitation.

We offer 72 stalls in 3 barns for rent which include full use of the 1 mile track, turf course, regulation starting gate, European walkers, breaking pens and paddocks.

The mild winters of the northwest Ocala area are ideal for getting a head start to the winner's circle!
