Host to a long list of sporting, recreational, and community events including horse shows and clinics, RV shows, dog agility trials, concerts, and more, the Jacksonville Equestrian Center in Jacksonville, Florida receives a tremendous amount of foot (and hoof) traffic year-round. Fortunately, maintaining the 80-acre facility’s high-traffic areas – such as its state-of-the-art, 123,000 square foot indoor coliseum – has been more manageable than ever over the past six months due to a generous heavy equipment sponsorship from Ag-Pro and John Deere.
As the Official Tractor of the Jacksonville Equestrian Center, Ag-Pro has supplied the facility with two John Deere 5000 Series Tractors, machines that now allow the center’s maintenance workers to tackle even the toughest jobs with ease. The Jacksonville Equestrian Center is thrilled with the performance of its John Deere equipment and has found these hardworking tractors to be an excellent fit in meeting all of the facility’s needs. The powerful engine power and hitch capacity of the 5000 Series Tractors is ideal for dragging the indoor arena and multiple outdoor arenas.
The John Deere tractors will keep arena surfaces in top-notch condition for visitors at the Jacksonville Equestrian Center at a variety of upcoming equestrian events, including the Ride Lite Dressage show on September 4-5, the Southeast Medal Finals hunter and jumper championship show on September 16-18, and the First Coast Classical Dressage schooling show on September 24-25.
Located just off of I-295 in Jacksonville, the Jacksonville Equestrian Center is part of a recreational park that features an Olympic size indoor pool, an 18-hole golf course, and regulation softball fields.
