Letting Legends Lead the Way

We're glad you've taken the time to visit our website. We are here to inform and excite those who are interested in Gypsy Cobs. Take a look through our website to learn more about us and our vision for North Fork, view our breeding stock and read about horses available for purchase. Whether you're here to learn more or just enjoy some glorious pictures of our favorite breed, we hope that you enjoy your time with us.

North Fork Gypsy Cobs is one of the leading Gypsy Cob Breeders in Canada with fully registered breeds from the Gypsy Vanner Horse Society. As the Gypsy Cob (also known as the Gypsy Vanner) is still considered rare in North America, we also promote this amazing breed across Canada and North America with our continuing involvement in shows, registry events and communication with other breeders across the country.

We offer nothing but the best quality Gypsy horses, with a large selection of mares, stallions, fillies, colts and geldings available for sale to our customers. We also offer stallions for stud services to select outside mares. All our foundation stock has been imported directly from Europe, many having DNA verified bloodlines, and each one has been registered with the Gypsy Vanner Horse Society.

It is our mission not only to provide the best horse for every client, but also to create a welcoming and friendly place for visitors, whether coming to us to find their own special horse, or visiting to enjoy the beauty and loving nature of our wonderful herd. It is our experience that time spent with this unique breed of horse helps one to de-stress and put away the cares of the day. We know you'll think so, too!

Our love for horses and our commitment to breeding the best of the best is the reason we are one of the most trusted and recommended Gypsy Vanner Horse breeders in Western Canada and North America.

Come on out and see our wide selection of horses for sale, as well as mares, fillies, colts, stallions, and geldings who are fully registered with the Gypsy Vanner Horse Society. Feel free to browse our website and let us help you learn about and find the horse of your dreams.

We are located in Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia and are one of the largest Canadian Gypsy Cob breeders available, where we are pleased to say that each horse still gets individualized attention. Until they arrive at their new home, every beautiful Gypsy Vanner is treated like family.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like to talk about the horses for sale.

Special Announcement:

What a joy and incredible journey it has been promoting this wonderful breed for the last 12 years. We are truly blessed.

However … after Dale had his heart attack in 2013 it became clear it was time to sell or make new arrangements. As many of you may know, for the last 6yrs we have had our horses taken care of by caring herd managers across Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.

The special horses we have loved and the friendships we’ve made have added so much to our lives and we are so grateful. However, the herd management business model has allowed us to stay in the breeding business since then, but over these years we have missed our horses as we were not able to have any with us.

With all this in mind, we have with reluctance decided that it’s time for us to gradually leave the breeding business as our attention is required in other areas at this time in our lives.

To facilitate this transition we have entered into an agreement with Dave and Carmel Baird of River Lane Ranch, just outside of Edmonton, Alberta Canada.

The River Lane Ranch team will be taking over the task of managing every aspect of our herd including training, sales and marketing.

We are excited to begin this journey with this lovely family run ranch who also has an enthusiastic and caring staff to help make this all happen. Their high level of professionalism, as well as our friendship that has developed over the past few years makes them a great fit for helping us to ensure that our much loved horses will find their forever homes in a way that will benefit both the horses and the Gypsy Horse industry overall.

Thank you all so much for your support over the years, you have enriched our lives through this wonderful breed and we can’t say enough about how much this all means to us.

This will be a gradual process and we will be keeping our toes in, attending shows as we are able, maintaining precious friendships that we have made along the way, and connecting with the new owners of our beloved herd as they find their perfect homes. Blessings!
