Equestrian related

 Keystone has one of the largest horse populations in Florida.  Activities such as riding, showing, racing, boarding,  and breeding in addition to feed and tack equipment supply  are staples of the Keystone economic base.  After all, Tampa  Bay Downs is at the other end of Race Track Road.

Cattle, Alpaca, and ...

  Our new comers are pleasantly surprised when our    seasoned Keystoners tell them about the breeding,  grazing, and sales that are another Keystone economic  staple.  Not to mention several animal  rescue organizations, livestock veterinarian specialists,  and dog boarding and breeding services.
