Longwood Farm South's Sponsors

Our Title Sponsor

As Ocala horse farm owners and equestrian competitors, Chris and Rob Desino LIVE the Ocala horse farm market. They don't want you to buy just any Ocala farm; they want you to buy the right Ocala farm... in the right part of Ocala... with the right amount of acreage... the right distance from downtown Ocala. They know which areas are increasing in value and which areas to avoid. They feel it is their responsibility to teach their clientele everything they need to know prior to buying your Ocala horse farm.

Chris and Rob come to you with an uncompromising commitment to take care of you and your investment every step of the way. Their clients become their friends and they absolutely love what they do.


Drew Discount owner and operator of Discount Dirtworks has done a fantastic job installing our new German Geo-Textile dressage arena and round pen.  In addition to his stellar work on Longwood's footing he has been a proud supporter and sponsor of our upcoming horse trials.  He is a perfectionist about everything regarding horse footing which is exactly why we decided to hire him. We highly recommend him!
Ford of Ocala provides Longwood with all of our personal and working vehicles to trailer horses and keep the farm in top shape.  Their support this year is greatly appreciated.  Ford of Ocala will be present at our horse trials with samples of their new 2012 Super Duty pickups.
We have recently installed German Geo Textile in one of our dressage rings and even our round pen. We have been thrilled by the results! Their support for this upcoming year has been greatly appreciated.


The Ocala Polo Association has recently taken interest in Longwood Farms as our new polo field is an ideal destination for their players to stick and ball as well as play small matches. They will be playing a game as entertainment following our horse trial in January, where spectators can watch the game and have refreshments and fresh food.  We are looking forward to this cherry on the pie of our event!

Popz microwave popcorn has been a contributor to Longwood for years.  They are responsible for donating the popcorn moose in our stadium arena.  They have signed up to sponsor our first cross country fence for the January 21 horse trial!  Much thanks POPZ! 

Rebound Hoof Pack is sponsoring our first stadium fence for our horse trial!  They have also offered prizes for our winners and free samples of their highly innovative product. 

For those of you who are not familiar with this product, it is a sticky hoof packing formulated to draw pain, soreness and inflammation out the hoof. The all natural ingredients won't test, and the sticky base eliminates the need to wrap the hoof, saving horse owners time and money!

We have been searching for years for the perfect drag for our different footing options and have finally found it!  Reist Industries manufactures the finest most durable grooming equipment on the market.  We are very excited to announce the sponsorship of these state of the art multi-groomers.
