With a well earned historical place in America’s history of agriculture, the role of equine operations in the Orange County has taken on a new look. While the equine population is diversified, and the deep rooted Standardbred industry driving on, the pleasure horse numbers have greatly increased, lending to the accelerated growth of boarding and training facilities to meet their demand. 

Orange County's Equine industry ranks second in the state and has over 26 equine associations and clubs, 10,500 acres of parks available for riding and more than 60 stables with indoor riding arenas.
