West Central Florida is horse country. Many of the communities along the central Gulf coast of Florida revolve around an equestrian lifestyle, and Citrus County Florida is right in the middle of this horse lovers paradise.
It all started 1916 when highway construction expert Carl G. Rose moved just North of Citrus County to Ocala, and later established the first horse farm on a pasture now occupied by the Paddock Mall and the Central Florida Community College.
Ocala is one of only four major thoroughbred centers in the world with 600 thoroughbred horse farms that have produced 45 national champions, 6 Kentucky Derby winners, 20 Breeders’ Cup champions and 6 Horses of the Year and in 2007 was officially named the “Horse Capital of the World™”.
The same love and enthusiasm for horses is found in Citrus County and the gentle rolling hills and pastures of Citrus County and its villages are home to many horse and cattle ranches.
No wonder that many people have retired from the hustle and bustle of their big cities and moved to Citrus County to hold or breed horses on a smaller scale on their own pastures.
There are many horseback riding groups and clubs. And many children get involved early in the equestrian lifestyle through the 4-H curriculim.

There are of course the County Fairs and live stock expositions as well as bronco and bull riding tournaments throughout the region.
The countryside is traversed with horseback riding trails for leisure and recreation. There is even an old fashioned horseback cattle drive that goes through the area, complete with chuck wagons.

Welcome to Citrus County.
If you’ve ever wanted to swim with a manatee, relax in front of a gorgeous sunset, or reel in the “big one” on one of our scenic rivers… then you’ve come to the right place!
Citrus County was created in 1887 and was formerly part of Hernando County.
It was named for the county’s citrus trees. The rich historical culture and variety of shops, water recreation, golfing, and dining experiences, make Citrus County one of the most enjoyable places on the west coast.
Citrus County is a county located in the U.S. state of Florida.
As of the 2010 census, the population was 141,236.
Its county seat is Inverness, and its largest community is Homosassa Springs.
Citrus County comprises the Homosassa Springs, FL Metropolitan Statistical Area.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 773 square miles (2,000 km2),
of which 582 square miles (1,510 km2) is land and 192 square miles (500 km2) (24.8%) is water.
There are a number of uninhabited and/or sparsely inhabited coastal islands that can be accessed via watercraft. While some of the Citrus County islands are state lands thus available for public use for recreational opportunities, many other Citrus County islands are private property and are either wholly or partially owned by private parties.
According to the US Fish and Wildlife Services’ aerial manatee surveys, as many as 400 of these unique creatures can be found in Citrus County at one time. This typically occurs only during the coldest months of the year.
Manatees can also be viewed in the underwater observatory at Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. Most of the park’s residents are injured animals either undergoing rehabilitation for future release to the wild, or will be permanent due to their inability to be released to the wild. The notable exception is Lucifer, an African hippopotamus that had prior movie roles. When a permanent home could not be found for Lucifer, then-Governor Lawton Chiles named him an “honorary citizen of the state”,thus allowing him to remain at the Park.
