OCALA, Fla., Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Equiventures, LLC is pleased to announce the BG Equestrian CCI* with a $5,000 purse. Sponsored by Bobby Genovese, Chairman of the Board of BG Capital Group and owner of BG Farms in north central Florida, the BG Equestrian CCI* will be held during the Ocala Horse Properties, LLC Three Day Event, April 11-14, 2013. This generous sponsorship will be the perfect addition to the Rebecca Broussard CCI** with its $10,000 purse.
Genovese rides the winning edge in the boardroom and on the polo field with a portfolio of winners that keeps this accomplished equestrian and board chairman in the winner's circle. Marrying his love of horses with his passion for acres of wide open pastures, BG Farms in north central Florida is a dream come true for the venture capitalist and accomplished equestrian who hopes to share his distinctive country retreat with other like-minded travelers.
Surrounded by nearly 1,000 acres of pristine green pastures, the elegant year-round destination features an impressive six-bedroom main house that spans nearly 7,000 square feet, five three-bedroom luxury cottages, a water park, and a working diesel train that transports guests through the private BG Equestrian theme park — which includes elephants, giraffes and alligators. "The discovery of this stunning property in southern Marion County is a dream come true for me and for my children who love to ride as much as I do," explained Genovese, an accomplished polo player, having won the Canadian Open, and numerous American, Argentinean and Chilean tournaments, with his Vancouver polo team. In addition to its unique amenities, guests enjoy the services of a full-time chef, housekeeping staff and grounds/stable workers. The five star accommodations extend to the horses with more than 70 manicured stalls, a 250' x 150' covered arena, a large outdoor arena, two Equi-cisers, round pens, and acres of beautiful pasture. Daily activities include trail rides and riding lessons along with outdoor activities that include golf, scuba diving and mountain biking. The idea of this farm is to provide horse-loving people with an incredible place to relax and have some fun for a day, week, month or longer, says Genovese. "Guests can rent the entire main house for a wedding, family reunion or corporate retreat or any one of the three-bedroom cottages while they compete at a local riding event or while enjoying the miles of adjacent trails. We have made every effort to offer our guests, both human and equine, every comfort possible."
Featured in the January issue of Whats Up Ocala magazine, (http://whatsupocala.com/bg_farms_ocala) Publisher Joel Wiessner was delighted to find more than the ideal location for a lifestyle photo shoot. "Bobby has created the ideal place for visitors to experience the essence of the tranquility and beauty of Ocala. It's such a precious, unspoiled place."
A must-see destination, plans are underway for a soft opening this spring. For more information contact: 352-245-7779; www.bgfarmsocala.com
