Haha, she is only about 16hh so not really that big. I'll find something bigger before I hop on again. Thanks a heap for the tip!

I use one of those Rubbermaid kitchen step stools that has 2 steps. It's the perfect height for me to comfortably get on my 18 hd. gelding and nice and stable but cheap :) Easy to carry along with me to wherever I want to get on at home anyways.

Wow, you can get on with just that? Boy not me. I have to jump up from the 55 gallon drum.

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

Our Gypsy Horse Drafts are usually a bit shorter than other Drafts, and found in the 13hh - 15.3hh area.

Here are some pics of Gypsies doing their thing. My daughter was riding her Gypsy Horse in the pic of the Rose Parade.

Question Most Often Asked


Although some like to really 'go', most are more restrained. We find them incredibly easy to train and most of them love to jump.

Some GH breeders, also breed Drum Horses. They are a cross of Gypsies and Shires or Clydes and the majority are coloured.

Loved all the pics here. Keep them coming.

Love your IDs. I suspect you know my friend Maggi Tyler, who owned and bred some wonderful IDs, in the UK and US.
