The Gypsy Horse

The Gypsy horse (also known as the Gypsy Cob or the Gypsy Varner) was bred by the Romany people, better known as Gypsies, of England and Ireland. Bred from Shires, Clydesdales, Freisian, Fell and Dale ponies, these horses have been in existence for hundreds of years.

The horses were an integral part of life; they pulled the colorful wagons that were what these people called home. Often cared for by the children, it was essential that the horses be kind and quiet, with a willing disposition. They also had to be hardy, sound and easily kept due to the nature of their lives.

Easy to recognize, these magical horses come in nearly all colors. They have amazing amounts of hair. Manes that grow below the shoulder, tails that drag on the ground and feet that appear to be floating is only the beginning.
