Why Sponsor?

Numbers support why Ocala/Marion County lives up to the moniker of Horse Capital of the World.” According to the 2018 American Horse Council Economic Impact Study of Horse Ownership in Marion County, there are 80,260 equines in the county with an economic impact of $2.3 billion.

Equestrian businesses have a proven track record of passionate loyalty to products and services that support their common interests in this community. Many of our Ocala Industry Leadersequine services contribute tens of millions of dollars into our overall Marion County economic growth and tax base on an annual basis.


“The Ocala Horse Alliance is dedicated to developing a unified horse industry designed to promote, educate, strengthen and assist the industry and its many stakeholders. I am also thrilled that the mission of the OHA includes a major literacy project for our school system. What a winning formula The Ocala Horse Alliance brings to our unique City and magnificent Marion County”

Kent Guinn, Mayor of Ocala

Horse Capital of the World

Sponsorship Opportunities:

A Customized Approach

The Ocala Horse Alliance
and OHA Summit

Given the scope of the organization and the multitude of programs and communications to be delivered over the next few years including The OHA Summit and the Black Stallion Literacy Project, we believe OHA can offer sponsors a unique and value-based program specifically designed to support their corporate marketing goals. The OHA is a new and long overdue entity needed in our community which we believe, based on our Alliance’s plan and an out pouring of corporate and media inquiries to date, that our coverage in the Ocala Marketplace will be extensive and ongoing on many media platforms.


The OHA does not offer “cookie-cutter” sponsorship programs at the top tier of our sponsor packages. Rather we are opting to design a specific customized program based on a sponsors’ marketing needs and goals in order to achieve success. We have a vast array of marketing inventory that the OHA can package in direct response to an overall corporate promotional campaign that fits any sponsors’ objectives on a 12-month a year basis.
