I'm looking for a small horse property (2-4 horses) with a small house. I was thinking somewhere from Ocala to about halfway to Gainesville. I used to drive through this area every year when visiting my father, but haven't been back for a number of years.

Would anyone have info to share on areas to look or to avoid? I've seen a couple listings for around Reddick, I think another area was Citra(?), Anthony(?) - I looked at so many I'm confused now what was where.
Not having been around there for awhile, I'd appreciate input. Quiet area is ok, safety is important. Any thoughts are welcome and I appreciate your time. Thanks!

If you want to be in between Ocala and Gainesville, I would recommend you check out Micanopy and Mcintosh. I am not sure there is good horse property out there. I assume as long as you go to the outskirts, you probably could find good something good. Personally, I like Mcintosh. Their downtown is adorable. There seems to be a sense of community.
All those areas are safe. Anywhere you get property that is big enough for 2-4 horses, you will probably be safe. If I had to guess, I would rank Reddick the lowest.
Personally, I would rank the places like this:
(1) Micanopy
(2) Mcintosh
(3) Citra (not really on the way)
(4) Anthony
(5) Reddick
But then again, what I like may be different than what you want. And I cannot say that this order has anything to do with horses, but more just my opinion of the areas.

Yes, Reddick has some good horse properties available. Check with a local realtor to help search for properties.
