The International Gypsy Equine Association inception was in January 2016 when the website came online to guide and record the development of this new horse ; a truly miniature size gypsy! …as well as other gypsy cob blends in their varied sizes. This new effort offers what NO OTHER REGISTRY of gypsy and part gypsy stock offers: RECORD OF GET OF PART BRED STALLIONS. THIS IS NEEDED for the development of the miniature gypsy horse!!!!
But more importantly, IGEA provides a platform for membership organization and service! This is building slowly but surely and we actually have quite a few purebred from imported gypsy cob horses recorded in the registry already!
Congratulations to The Gambler and Epona Ponies in Oregon as winners of the first big award, 2016 Year End Event Award!
Bellbottom Farm fully supports the efforts of the International Gypsy Equine Association and its studbook development! Please go visit the new website and see what it is all about! IGEA also welcomes any and all sizes of gypsy horses and blends!

We hope that this effort will help centralize and focus resources that will continue to add value for the gypsy/pony and miniature horse crosses that are being made in North America and otherwise internationally. The new endeavor will no doubt continue to grow and minor changes and improvements will help to provide excellent service FOR MEMBERS….this is the primary goal to help members network to find what they seek, and to enjoy the blessings of finding this special equine….and for recording the pedigrees of our new breed of miniature horse. We also hope to provide resources to help guide others involved in the process of “breeding up” to develop the mini gypsy horse! The goal is to keep it all easy and fun as possible, so please consider supporting this new endeavor if you have such crosses that might fit into this long term plan. Thank you for your support!
