Our founders, the Thompsons, connected over a mutual love of animals, and thereafter discovered an unknown breed of horse, developed by British Gypsies, while traveling through the English countryside. After a four-year journey to understand these horses and the culture that created them, we took part in naming them: the Gypsy Vanner horse. The Gypsy Gold Farm is home to the first 16 registered horses of a breed that's now 5,000 animals strong. Our 40 acre ranch is an educational and cultural oasis, where visitors to Central Florida learn about one of the most colorful and least understood societies on earth and the magical Vanner Horses they envisioned.Arrange to visit Gypsy Gold Horse Farm and other attractions in Ocala using our Ocala road trip website .

WOW! Had an amazing tour! Me and my mother we're stuck in traffic and got there late but they were SUPER nice and accommodating. As for the tour, it was very educational in the history and the breeding process. I loved this cause I'm a pre-vet student at NC State! They let you pet the horses and take as many pictures as you want. It's a very laid back tour and the horses are beyond gorgeous!! Definitely worth the trip and money.
Unique experience. Wonderful people there. Fascinating history presentation and the grounds our gorgeous. The horses are so beautiful, as are their awesome parrots, but i have to say I fell in love with some of the baby donkeys. So cute!
