Desert Jewel Gypsy Horses
Another horse group I encountered at the Fiesta Bowl Parade staging area was a group called the Desert Jewel Gypsy Horses. I was told the breed is called Gypsy Vanner and it originates from the U.K. and Ireland.
The horse is distinguished by it's heavy build and abundant feathering on the lower legs. I think they are quite beautiful.
