Dennis was one of the most interesting people I’ve ever heard speak. So friendly. And he interwove the story of his life and these beautiful creatures with the people who connected him to them. An absolute must experience!


It was the best time. Dennis and Taylor were so informative. Being able to feed and pet so many horses was a dream come true. Facilities were unique and immaculate. Thank you for the recommendation 😊


I wanted to visit some thoroughbred horse farms. There was no availability, except at Gypsy Gold Farms. The presentation on how the race of these horses originated and how it was established were fascinating. Also, information on how horse farms can survive from the reproduction in vitro and sale of young colts were fascinating, as well as educational protects that involve elementary schools of the area . However, the talk included too much personal information, that might be interesting to some, but I started to question if we were able to enjoy a walk if the horses. Finally, our owner and host introduced us our guide, Taylor. A very charming college students with great love for horses and dunkeys. Our tour became magical, being accompanied by a young donkey whose name is Patience, and who makes sure no one is left behind. At the end, I loved the tour. A 4 rating is due to the very long introduction.


Far exceeded my expectations! I was captivated by the warm and welcoming atmosphere that reflects the owners' genuine love for their Gypsy Vanner horses, as well as all of the other animals on the farm. Every corner of the farm resonates with the passion and dedication of the owners, making it a unique and memorable experience. You can feel the love and care that goes into every aspect of this haven for both horses and visitors. It is a truly special place where the owners' vibrant life and and connection with the horses shine through in every detail. I also love that they are now sharing this experience with the local schools, educating the children and teaching compassion. I highly recommend a visit to Gypsy Gold Farm :)


The tour of the farm was most memorable. A thoroughbred had just given birth to a colt. Thrilling to watch him literally “get his legs.” The guide might consider a microphone with speaker allowing the group to hear her points of knowledge, yet low enough not to bother the horses. The first hour was as he noted “ an old man’s “ PowerPoint. Dennis is a wealth of historical knowledge of his beloved “ Gypsy Vanners.” I would encourage him to integrate large easels with pictures, a couple of “ mappings” reinforcing the lineage of horse breeds he speaks of… Vanners, mules, donkeys, etc. The group of twenty plus attendees were motivated to be on the farm ready to hear, see, touch and leave feeling Dennis’ passion. A few adjustments will ensure maximum joy for Gypsy Vanners.


So much fun. The Dennis' talk was interesting and humorous. He was a hoot. Then we had about an hour with the horses. Super informational.

My mom and I had a “horsey” weekend in Ocala and visited Gypsy Gold farm after researching things to do in the area. It was our favorite activity all weekend! Erin greeted us and made us feel at home immediately and Dennis’s life and stories are epic. We enjoyed feeding the horses carrots and meeting the babies! The farm is stunning and I can’t wait to go back with my niece.


The horses and property are beautiful. The educational presentation was informative and entertaining. Highly recommend the whole experience.


Stunning horses in beautiful setting. The interesting history of the breed was told with passion by Dennis, the owner of the farm, and was followed by a tour of the farm to see the horses. We were able to visit with, and pet the horses who seemed to WANT all the attention almost to the point of being dog-like in their charming demeanor. (I've been around horses for 60+ years, and had never before experienced the behavior of this beautiful breed!) My only criticism: There is little clear signage to the farm!
