Nestled amidst the lush landscapes of Ocala, where sun-kissed pastures meet towering oak trees adorned with Spanish Moss, BG Ocala Ranch is a sanctuary that harmoniously marries modern luxury with the allure of equine companionship. The esteemed power couple Bobby Genovese and Dee Dee Taylor Eustace curate this haven, where refined living meets the transformative power of equine therapy.

As the morning sunbathes the ranch in a golden glow, the gentle sound of hooves on grass fills the air. Majestic horses roam in the vast pastures surrounding the meticulously appointed 10,000-square-foot Main House. Here, luxury and nature coexist in perfect harmony, offering guests an unparalleled experience of tranquility and elegance.

For those seeking refuge from the stresses of modern life, BG Ocala Ranch offers more than just luxurious accommodations. It provides an opportunity to host a holistic retreat where guests can immerse themselves in the art of living well while finding solace in the healing embrace of equine companionship.

At the heart of BG Ocala Ranch lies the profound connection between humans and horses—a bond that transcends language and culture. Equine therapy, a centuries-old practice, harnesses the gentle power of these magnificent creatures to promote healing and personal growth. The expanded electromagnetic range that horses have promotes a soothing effect on individuals, contributing to the therapeutic benefits of equine-assisted programs. It has been proven that working near a horse can reduce our heart rate, it can reduce blood pressure, can reduce the amount of cortisol and it can also cause feel-good endorphins to increase in our bodies. There is a physiological reason our moods are elevated by just being around horses.

Under the guidance of experienced facilitators, guests can engage in a variety of equine-assisted activities designed to foster emotional resilience, enhance self-awareness and promote stress reduction. Whether grooming, leading or trail riding, participants discover the therapeutic benefits of connecting with horses on a profound level.

The tranquil surroundings of BG Ocala Ranch provide an ideal backdrop for these healing experiences. As guests explore the sprawling grounds and immerse themselves in the beauty of nature, they find a sense of peace and serenity that rejuvenates the mind, body and spirit.

But it’s not just the equine opportunity that sets BG Ocala Ranch apart—it’s the immersive experience it offers. From exhilarating stick and ball games to leisurely trail rides, every activity is crafted to perfection, ensuring that guests leave feeling refreshed, inspired and renewed.

At BG Ocala Ranch, the philosophy of “The Art of Living Well” extends beyond luxurious accommodations and impeccable service. It encompasses the healing power of equine therapy, inviting guests to embark on a journey of self-discovery and renewal.
