Horse Articles :: Gypsy Vanner Horse

Gypsy Vanner Horse

For many years the Gypsy Vanner horse has been known as a steady cart horse and an excellent addition to the family with young children and inexperienced riders.

Many, many years ago... Up a rocky slope moves a slow line of boxy carriages piled high with kitchen wares and belongings rattling from every corner. The caravan is pulled by determined teams of horses with long, a beautiful sight these horses are as they so carefully pound along with flowing manes blowing in the breeze. One step in front of the other, these large, docile animals clod along through the rock and brush. Relentlessly, these horses would continue on until they were stopped for the day.

A larger horse, the body of the Gypsy Vanner is generally of a stocky build with unique white and black markings that were once said to be used as a type of anti theft device for horse thieves. The Gypsy Vanner is said to have originated from the time when the gypsies of Romany roamed in caravans. With the strength and stamina these horses exhibited, they were used primarily to pull these caravans of people, their families and their belongings on to the next stop. With the temperament of a gentle giant, the Gypsy Vanner was also commonly found transporting women and children to and from destinations.

With a flowing mane and plentiful amounts of hair at the hooves, the Gypsy Vanner horse is set very much apart from other breeds in many ways. The temperament of the Gypsy Vanner horse makes it the perfect breed of horse for any rider to feel comfortable saddling up. The temperament of this horse makes it an even more popular choice for a variety of activities due to the trustworthiness and calmness of the breed.

Whether the purpose of your Gypsy Vanner is as the family horse, for harnessing, jumping, dressage, or just plain old riding the Gypsy Vanner will be the perfect horse for your needs. Associated Content mentions in an article on the Gypsy Vanner, that "while some horses may have more spirit than others and many horses play up when running and bucking in the field, this should become manageable when you lay your hands on the horse. That said, all horses need training and the Gypsy horses are no different!"

In consideration of the level headed temperament of the Gypsy Vanner, the average horse person need not worry.
