Cam Scott, originally from Richmond, Virginia has lead a life immersed in the horse world. During his high school years, while he was devoted to learning all things equestrian, he lived with his Grandmother in the countryside of Orange County so he could ride. The catch was that he had to commute every day back to Richmond to finish his high school education.
During this period in time, Cam rode with several hunter/jumper barns in Virginia, competing in the junior hunters throughout his school years. While in Orange County, he began riding with Sally Lamb, who encouraged him to hunt so he could improve his rid-ing skills and become brave riding across the country. While riding with the Keswick Hunt he earned his colors and was the first young rider to be hired professionally on the hunt staff as their Whipper-In. Cam’s professional grooming, barn management and riding career has taken him on adventures throughout the US and abroad, including a 6 month period riding young horses for Linda Courtney Cadem (LCC Show Jumping) outside of Belfast Ireland. He returned to Keswick, Virginia where he gained invaluable A Circuit experience with ‘the king of the working hunter ring’, Tommy Serio. Cam continued to work with several A circuit trainers, including the infamous Bill Schaub, who Cam assisted one year at Pony Finals where they had dozens of pony entries! This is how Cam became an expert at multi-tasking and managing a multitude of different client’s needs and personalities.
Cam has been traveling to Wellington for the past 6 winters to work in the industry, and this is where he met the Desino Brothers and Matt Varney. Due to Cam’s deep knowledge of and connections within the horse world, the Desino’s recognized his potential within the real estate industry. In 2016 he was hired by the Desino’s to work in Marketing, managing the Wellington Equestrian Realty booth in Tryon for 2 summers to market and promote Florida real estate to equestrian clientele.
Through the Desino’s support, Cam completed his real estate licensing in January of 2017, working out of the WER office in Wellington for that season. During May of 2018 he relocated to Ocala to join in the start-up of their newest business venture, Hudson Phillips Properties. Cam’s focus is on marketing and sales of luxury residential properties and small horse farms in the Marion County region.
Cam loves living in Ocala because it is quiet and quaint, and offers a variety of outdoor activities. When not working he can be seen paddle boarding, kayaking, going to the beach or spectating at horse events. “I love Ocala because it has all the benefits of Florida, yet you feel like you’re in a different state since the farm land is so similar to the rolling hills of Virginia!”
