"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Welcome to Unicorn Spirit Vanners.
Babes bred by Robert Watson, GV00134F.
Our love of the Gypsy Vanner Horse began in 1996 when my daughters and I moved to Bitburg, Germany. There my daughter began riding lessons at a nearby riding stable where the instructor had begun to import and work with horses from the British Gypsies. He had five extraordinary horses and a lot of ordinary colored cobs. The five were so strikingly different that they sparked a curiosity to understand why they were different and how had they been bred.
Our mission, since returning to the United States in 2001, has always been one of education. We learned early on that there was a tremendous need to educate not only the general public but the horse industry as well as to what exactly was a Gypsy Vanner Horse; where did it come from; and what could it do or contribute to the equestrian community. Our horses have been trained to ride, drive, and to work in equine assisted education classes.
We have a passion for the selective breeding process that created the breed and proudly stand stallions and mares from those founding pedigrees. We produce one to two foals annually to build on those family lines that we treasure.
