Irish Cob History

The Gypsy Cob was created to be a strong, reliable and versatile horse. In addition, the Gypsy Cob is famed for its beauty and natural gentleness. They were expected to pull heavy caravans long distances in England, Ireland and throughout Europe. They had to graze off the land and be trustworthy enough to be handled by children.

The Gypsy Cob has been carefully bred for generations to be hardy, patient and kind. They are both a premium harness horse as well as a winner under saddle. The Gypsies are now making their way in California and are certainly proving that the Gypsy people have truly created a LIVING TREASURE. We can all learn from these wonderful horses.
