What makes the Gypsy Horse special? Glad you asked! This is a small draft breed – often the height of the average quarter horse (14-15 hands). They are known for their flowing manes and tails, as well as for their feathered feet (like you see on the Clydesdales). Originally bred to pull the wagons and vardos of the Traveling People of the British Isles, they are very versatile and excel in many disciplines, such as dressage, jumping, western, trail, and even working cattle! Form and function at it’s finest.
