Our love for horses spans a lifetime and our commitment to breeding the best of the breed is obvious from our chosen breeding stock. We have literally searched the world and brought some of the finest examples of Gypsy Cobs right here to Canada. One of the more famous representations of this breed is one of our stunning stallions… the one and only "ClononeenTumbleweed", known the world over as the "Sire of Sires. He is without a doubt one of the top stallions alive in the world today.
Starting from the very first 6 horses we imported from England our philosophy has been simple and consistent...start with legends and build from there.
Meet Our Herd Managers
We’d like to introduce our Herd Managers we have been blessed to make arrangements with. Our Managers are looking after our horses on our behalf, and giving them all the same careful care and handling that we have done in the past.
The British Columbia Herd Managers
Ben and Jess Smith, along with their kids Asher and Paige, moved to British Columbia Canada over a decade ago from Australia. Long time horse lovers and owners, they finally decided it was time to join in the fun of having breeding mares with their active family and have joined the North Fork Herd Management Team to head up a small herd for us. Located in the heart of Maple Ridges equine community, with ample riding, training and rearing facilities, North Fork are thrilled to be able to establish and offer this as our next world class, boutique stables. We couldn't be more pleased to have our mares under their capable management and are excited to have them onboard.
The Saskatchewan Herd Managers
Jackie Johnson, Trick Trainer extraordinaire of Stunthorse.com, is also helping us out by continuing her work with North Fork Cash (whom she is now part owner of). We are excited to continue our partnership with Jackie, as she has worked so hard to promote the breed with us, and will continue to do so in new and exciting ways in the future.
The Alberta Herd Managers
Riley & Stephanie Hickey met on a ranch where Riley was a working cowboy and Stephanie was training horses and teaching horsemanship clinics. They consider it a blessing to be able to raise their 3 little girls on a ranch with lots of room to run, and good horses to ride! The Gypsy Vanners caught their eye as the right temperament to not only teach their children about horses, but for Stephanie to use in her horsemanship clinics and horse-human development program. The Hickey family are situated in the Rimby area.
Steve and Angela Reuther, along with their son Austen and daughter Maddie, are situated near Cold Lake, Alberta. Experienced horse handlers and ranchers who have helped us at many events in the past, they continue to partner with North Fork with a smaller scale breeding program
