Gainesville, Florida Accomodations:

Horse Shows in the Park at Canterbury Equestrian Showplace is located 10 miles west of Gainesville and I-75 on SR-26 in Newberry, FL

We highly recommend eating at Newberry’s Backyard Barbeque in Newberry – just a few miles West of the showgrounds on SR 26 – I’ts GREAT! You’ll find lots of good places to dine at I-75 and SR 26.

A grocery store is also located just 1 miles West of Canterbury on SR 26. Pet boarding is available at Pet Paradise, just 1 mile east of Canterbury at Pet Paradise. Several Feed and tack stores are located on SR 26 just East of Canterbury.

Several Hotels and Motels can be located up and down the I-75 corridor, as there are several exits for Gainesville and Ocala within close proximity.

A good website which has links for various nearby Hotels, Motels and Bed & Breakfasts is: and as always – just “googling” hotels/motels in the surrounding areas will yield lots of links and reviews. For the Fall shows – make reservations early, as due to college activities there are times when it’s harder to get a room. HSITP has tried our best to avoid holding any horse shows on College football game weekends but due to facility availability, there may be a conflict from time to time!
