Welcome to Pleasant Acres Farm

 

Located just outside of Ocala, Fl, Pleasant Acres Farm is a beautiful 400-acre property owned by Joseph and Helen Barbazon. Nestled among lush pasture land and majestic live oaks, our award-winning facility was ranked third in the nation for leading breeders in 2009.

Established in 1983, our full-service commercial breeding facility houses multiple mare, yearling, and weanling barns, and a 10 stall, state-of-the-art stallion barn built in 2016. We provide our clients with world-class services by representing all facets of the Thoroughbred industry including breeding, mare care, yearling and weanling care, and sales representation.

At Pleasant Acres Farm, our horses come first. We’ve been home to the 2009 Florida Broodmare of the Year, 2008 and 2009 Florida Turf Champion of the Year, Multiple Graded Stakes Winners, and the 2009 Florida Horse of the Year, Presious Passion. Our farm has been honored by the Florida Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners’ Association as the 2009 Florida Breeder of the Year, in addition to being awarded the 2008 Needles Award for Outstanding Small Breeder.

Launched in 2014, our new stallion division is poised to bring Florida Thoroughbred breeding and racing to the forefront of our industry. We’re committed to bringing some of the most sought-after bloodlines to the state to give Florida-based mares a chance to breed with top-rated stallions with proven track records.

Our unique hands-on approach to stallion acquisition, breeding, and expert care allows our owners to work closely alongside our team. Joseph and Helen are involved in every aspect of our operations – from nutrition to breeding and foaling. Their commitment to quality is what allows Pleasant Acres Farm to pursue our passion for breeding champions.
