(Irish Gaelic for “Freedom” pronounced seer-sha)

2005 Gypsy Vanner Riding and Driving mare as well as excellent mother with exceptional offspring.
Saoirse was bred by Clononeen Farms in the United Kingdom, she was imported by Desert Jewels Gypsy Horses in Arizona in 2007, where she was one of their beautiful broodmares until she was purchased by May Day Acres in 2010 in foal to Fortune. We are excited and honored to have her in our herd!

Saorise was started to ride in late 2010 and learned to drive in 2012. She is a lovely riding and driving horse and has been to many shows, expos, parades and other events. She is a “Tri-color” bay tobiano mare.

Foaled in 2005 she stands 14.2H

She is registered with GVHS
Color DNA:
Ee, nT, aA
Sabino negative

Our stallion, Dakota Spirit Ore is one of her amazing foals, Saoirse has had several impressive foals, one of which, Stetson took Grand Champion at the 2010 LA County Fair!


She is For Sale to the right home as we are retiring her from our breeding program, but we will continue to ride and drive her. We would like to find a home where she will be used primarily for riding and driving although she is breeding sound.  Please inquire for more details on this amazing mare.

  1. Do you think Saoirse has the temperament to be a school horse? I am casually shopping for a ride/drive horse or pony for a wonderful riding program in my city. She is branching out to all types of riding including pleasure driving and vaulting. In addition she has a 501c3 corporation involved in rescue and breed promotion. I am trying to get her to add pleasure driving to her list of accomplishments. In addition to being a lesson horse, Saoirse would be loved and doted on by a gaggle of little girls as well as teach them to drive. I am a CDE driver with an accomplished trainer and we would continue with her driving training. I have listed her website below. Should this be a situation that you think her temperament is suitable for, please send me videos and pricing. Thanks! Polly

    • Yes I have used her with all levels and ages of riders and she has been driven by youth drivers down to age 10yrs with no issues (always accompanied of course). She hasn’t been shown since 2014, however, we have done lot of trail/pleasure rides and some parade and pleasure driving. She had a foal this year so she will need to some conditioning to get back to show level in riding and driving.
