I'm not sure if there is anything more beautiful than a Gypsy Vanner horse.

5. Interesting history and characteristics on Wikipedia...

Gypsy horse

Link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gypsy_horse

(snip)
The Gypsy Cob, also known as the Traditional Gypsy cob, Irish Cob, Gypsy Horse or Gypsy Vanner, is a type or breed of domestic horse from the island of Ireland. It is a small, solidly-built horse of cob conformation and is often, but not always, piebald or skewbald; it is particularly associated with the Irish Traveler and Romani traveling peoples of Britain and Ireland. There was no stud-book or breed association for horses of this type until 1996. It is now considered a breed and can be registered by the Traditional Gypsy Cob Association (TGCA).

From about 1850 traveling people in the British Isles began to use a distinct type of horse to pull their vardos, the caravans in which they had just begun to live and travel. The colour and look of the breed were refined in the years after the Second World War. Horses of this type were first exported to the United States in 1996.

Beautiful animal. Thanks for posting, Catbyte......

12. Those are beautiful horses.

I had a couple of trainers who had Friesians and watching them do dressage was mouth dropping.
