Gypsy Vanner, related to Gypsy Horses, is a design model that has only recently become popular in the United States. The striking colour and medium height of these horses - between 14 and 15 palms high - can deviate from the standard of the draughthorses. Nevertheless, it is their softness, their sound structures and their powerful work morale that bind them to other breeding herds.
Gypsy Vanner is one of the smaller draught horses directory with about 1,500 members since its foundation in 1996. Several other organisations have since been set up to develop this one-of-a-kind steed, which comes from the Gypsy pig all over Europe. When you don't care to attract your eye during a trip, the draught can be an outstanding pad.
