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 .

Dennis is incredible!!! The horses were beautiful. The four was worth every penny..his vision for His legacy legacy is beautiful!! Hope it get funded and it is realized. We loved the history and education!!!
The owner was very knowledgeable, an expert really, more than I could ever know about horses. His obvious passion, which comes across in his presentation before the site seeing, is a must to understand the value and uniqueness of what you are looking at. Great for children and adults alike.
