  • We had company from out of state that are true horse lovers. We all had a great time and truly enjoyed the horses and tour. 
  • Toured today, 9/24/16. Wow, met a most fascinating, knowledgeable and passionate man. One Dennis Thompson who bought this horse, developed over centuries by the gypsys in the British Isles. He named t...  read more »
  • This is a jewel to visit. Located just a couple miles off I-75 and nestled in a farm of green pastures and grand oaks for the setting. Ocala is horse country BUT this is a horse of a different color! The Gypsy Vanner is a magnificent breed of horse that few of us know about. The owner himself tells the story and mystery of these beautiful creatures and his fight to preserve the breed and bring them into the country. A tour of the facility brings you in contact with these friendly creatures. When we were there, we got to meet 2 'babies' only 2 weeks old; they already had feathers visible on their legs all the way up to their knees. Beautiful stallions, mares, and you must find out about the "Mule Moms" This will be my #1 place to take our visitors! I hope you enjoy Gypsy Gold Horse Farm Tour!
  • An indescribable joy. These horses are one of a kind and I fell in love the first time I saw them. Dennis (Erin & Gabriel) has built a farm that is a must see on things to do in Florida. I have been there 3 times and can't wait to go again. The horses are gorgeous and the story of the Gypsy Vanner in America should be made into a movie.
  • Was just anticipating a couple hours of amusement with granddaughter. It turned into the most amazing two hours ever possible in Ocala! Dennis and Erin were a joy. I am in awe of what has been accomplished by Dennis over his lifetime, as well as Erin's contributions. DO NOT MISS these amazing people, their story and, the equally amazing horses!
  • Our family had a wonderful time with Dennis and the Gypsy Vanner horses. My daughter had the most wonderful time, they made each others day. On the tour, you learn the history of the breed, get to meet the horses on the farm and learn about the life of an inspired couple. All of the horses are sweet in disposition and beautiful in appearance. Sure does make you want to buy one! ☺ We will visit again! Highly recommend! Ps. Bring your own carrots, they have special treat bins for the horses. Don't expect to feed them by hand.
  • This is a fun couple of hours. The owner and operator is charming and shares a lot about his own horses but also the tradition of horse breeding in general. The tour is definitely hands on too, so you will get to meet and feed a bunch of very nice horses. Definitely get the Groupon though. If you are looking to do something in this area and have an interest in horses it is definitely a good time.
