About US & our farm
Serenity Farm Gypsy Horses is a family run farm, who not only adores each of their horses, but is proud to breed and show a small quality herd of outstanding Gypsy Horses.
Our broodmares are not just “broodmares.” They along with their foals, benefit greatly from experiences, are trained to ride drive and show, and do so often. Frequent exposure and handling are key to the physical and mental well being to both mother and foal.
We have 4 beautiful broodmares .....Lillie Belle, Daezy Mae, Elly and Maddie are our "working moms" that are often seen in the show ring with their baby at their side.
We have 2 outstanding stallions, Sandman & Dream.
Sandman is the King of our farm. He is a beautiful buckskin with an amazing temperament and breathtaking movement that he passes on to his foals.
Dream is our junior stallion who is currently completing his ground collection training. He is a beautiful palomino with 2 blue eyes. We can not wait to see his first foal crop. He will be available to outside mares on a very limited bases.
We also have 2 geldings, Star and Dipper. Both are great boys....Star has won many blue ribbons over the years and Dipper is in training for his show career. We also have plans to use them in our lesson program when our mares are on maternity leave.
Our farm opened in December 2008, as a small family boarding facility. We take pride in the family feel to our farm. Currently we have 3 families that we share a barn with-all Gypsy Horses.
We began hand picking our horses based on their excellent bloodlines, exceptional
conformation and most importantly to us, their kind and willing temperament. All of our horses have been trained by us & shown by our family and closest friends.

We began breeding our mares here on our farm via ground collection and insemination only. This is much more costly but is much safer for our horses and their mindset. We have raised 14 fabulous foals over the years, with all but 2 bred on our farm . Some of our foals have stayed locally, but we also have some of our foals being raised as far as Alaska. Our herd 100% PSSM negative via DNA testing there for our foals are PSSM negative based on heritage.
Over the years, our farm has continued to grow in many different directions and we have traveled through the Midwest showing and promoting the breed.
