Horsey "Watering Holes" in Ocala, FL and Santa Ynez, CA
I'm writing an article about horsey hangouts and wondered if I could get a few recommendations one place per area to highlight in Ocala, FL and Santa Ynez, CA. Something nice, popular with the horsey crowd, with food and drink, where you can go for dinner or head straight from the barn for a drink and not be out of place. Any suggestions appreciated! Funny tales related to said hangouts a bonus :-)
horse and hounds is really the place to be here. hunters,jumpers, eventers, race trainers, race riders. they all go there. hang out on the patio till late at night shooting the breeze. you just never know who you will meet there. i used to work there many yrs.ago as a bartender. cool place, good food and good drinks
Yep, Horse and Hounds came to mind. But really, you can go just about anywhere in Ocala in barn clothes (OK, wash the manure off if you have been stripping stalls!).
During the OBS sales, some of the high rollers used to hang out at the SKY restaurant. DOn't know if they still do.
