The gypsy horse was developed over hundreds of years by selectively cross-breeding the Friesian, the Clydesdale, the Shire, the Fells Pony and the Dales Pony. The resulting horse of preference, which is thought to have originally emerged some time in the 1600s, was one which had to be sound, strong, intelligent, docile, athletic, gentle, kind, colorful and possessed of exceptional stamina and say nothing of a willingness to learn. According to some historians, the forerunner of today's gypsy horse came into existence around 600 B.C., when metalworkers travelled the countryside with their families in barrel top wagons.

Traditionally used for driving, they also excel at dressage, hunting, show jumping and both English  & Western riding. Years of selective breeding has developed a personality that is likely to be the most gentle and docile in the world.  They are extremely social and eager to participate in your activities and will do so with beauty and style

The original Gypsies didn't refer to themselves as gypsies, nor did they call their horses, gypsy horses. The Travellers of Ireland called their horses Coloured Cobs, Cobs, Coloured Horses or sometimes just Piebalds since over time that colour pattern became prized


Their laid back nature makes them easy to train and enjoy.
Perfect pleasure or competition mounts and for children. This stallion is no exception and is guaranteed to add bone, substance, temperament without compromising quality.

Horse & Pony


The Gypsy Horse was bred by the Gypsy Travellers to pull their ornate caravans and carts. They come in a variety of colours from pinto to solid blacks as well as the rarer buckskin and palamino's. Long flowing mane's and tails and of course an abundant of feather is highly desireable. The Gypsy Horses intelligence, stamina, hardiness and sensibility are unsurpassed by any other breed today.


The Gypsy Cob was involved in just about every aspect of the Gypsy Travellers life. During the daytime the Gypsy Horse pulled the Gypsy Caravan for miles entrusted with the famlies worldly possessions. Once camp was established the Gypsy Horse took watch over the Gypsy children taking them on small rides and allowing them to climb and crawl all over them. These Gypsy horses were so valuable to the Travellers that in some areas these horses took the form of currency.

No other established breed will compare to the history that the Gypsy Horses hold. What other breed of horse do you know of that will fetch tens of thousands of dollars, with no papers and no guarantee? They do just that in the UK and Ireland. These horses are quickly gaining popularity among horse enthusiasts around the world & NZ is no exception. The Gypsy horses excel in all disciplines asked of them.
