Story
The formation of the breed was influenced by gypsies, who, together with their pinto horses, first appeared on the British Isles in the 15th century. Here gypsy horses mixed with the local breed, which led to the appearance of the breed Irish or gypsy cob. Other British breeds also took part in the formation of the gypsy coba – Welsh ponies of all types, Dale, Fell, Highland, Kledesdal and Shire.

Until the mid-20th century, the tinker was not recognized as a separate breed. The systematic breeding of tinkers began only after the Second World War. In 1996, the Irish Cob Society was founded, which began the registration of tinkers. The Irish Cob Association has registered the first official founder of the breed, Cushti Bok stallion. Today in the world there are several pedigree books of gypsy cobs.
