Horse Fever Rides Again


With The Introduction of the Fourth Herd


It has been 20 years since Ocala’s record-breaking public art project and auction, Horse Fever. For five months the public delighted in our herd of 53 horses, many of which still adorn the streets of Ocala. Artists and a generous business community came together to ultimately raise over $1.5 million for the arts and 27 other local charities, founding the Marion Cultural Alliance (MCA). We proudly reflect on a 20-year period of growth and consistent support through programming, grants, and scholarships enhancing art and cultural programs across every medium in Ocala/Marion County.

Horse Fever History


The Horse Fever public art project was created in 2001 by Marion Cultural Alliance with help from the Florida Thoroughbred Breeders’ and Owners’ Association. The Horse Fever herd has stood as a testament to the unification of culture and community. Early support for the project resulted in 53 artists’ designs for the hand-painted horses. The herd was displayed throughout the Ocala area. Furthermore, the popularity of Horse Fever has produced unique memorabilia such as posters, mugs, a commemorative book and miniature statues. All of which are available for purchase at the Brick City Center for the Arts, home of Marion Cultural Alliance. In 2005, MCA created a traveling herd of horses, dubbed Horse Fever in Motion. Then in 2011, to commemorate the Horse Fever 10th year anniversary, MCA created a new herd featuring 31 new artists’ designs. These horses have traveled to events all over Ocala and are deeply cherished by our community.
