Mission of the Gypsy Vanner Horse Society

“It is the mission of the Gypsy Vanner Horse Society to respect, the spoken words of Gypsies who have dedicated lifetimes in the pursuit of breeding the perfect caravan horse…the Gypsy Vanner.  The Gypsy Vanner Horse Society’s mission is to bring honor, recognition, and a better understanding to one of the world’s most colorful and least understood societies and the horses they love so dearly.  This registry was established to protect a vision that was born over half a century ago to create the perfect horse to pull their colorful caravans.

A perfect caravan horse is strong, intelligent, docile, athletic, and colorful and has excellent endurance.  These same traits make this breed well suited for any number of pursuits.

The Gypsy Vanner Horse Society remains quality based, culturally sensitive and socially responsible in the pursuit of our dream.  Come share the dream with us !

Goals of the Gypsy Vanner Horse Society :

  • Establish the breed with the look envisioned by the Gypsies.
  • Establish the breed with the genetics that created the look.
  • Establish the breed with the feelings of the status and pride that Gypsies feel for their selectively bred horse.
  • Establish the breed in parallel to the values that Gypsies place on their selectively bred horses.
