Gypsy Vanner horses are renowned for having an exquisite, royal, and distinctive appearance.

The Gypsy Vanner, a domesticated pony breed with Irish ancestry, is also known as the Gypsy Cob and Irish Cob. It was eventually introduced to the US in 1996 after having been bred for over a century to pull Gypsy caravans. Smaller breed members are far more prized than their bigger counterparts since they require less feed and are therefore less expensive to keep than larger horses, in addition to being selected for endurance and strength. They have a calm and welcoming disposition and are highly athletic.

The Gypsy Vanner originated in the UK and Ireland.

They are little horses ranging in height from 12.2 to 16 hands. Their draft-style build gives them the strength and power of a Clydesdale. They have a gentle, sensitive disposition and are quite easy to teach. Gypsy Vanners are among the most popular pony breeds available today because of their intelligence, docility, and simplicity of training. They are popular with families and make wonderful starter horses.
