About the Book
'I call myself a gipsy because that's what I am. We live in trailers and have got about 20 horses. I grew up riding and I never use a saddle, so I'm natural to it, see? I know we're different, but I wouldn't want to be like you. I like standing out and I like being a gipsy.'
For the gipsies Stow horse fair is a high point of their year. It's an opportunity for gipsy men to get together to trade horses, but it's also a collective celebration of what it means to be a gipsy.
