Horses and the Equestrian Lifestyle - A Lifelong Obsession!

Owner and founder, Kristan Cicero, had a lifelong love affair with horses and always dreamed of owning a Gypsy Vanner Horse. 

Never one to give up on her dreams, her wish finally came true when she bought her first horse and beautiful gelding, WHR Dreamer on her 50th birthday (no better way to celebrate a midlife crisis, don’t you agree?). She has since added sweet Daisy to the herd (because we all know you can’t have just one horse! Well, everyone knew except her husband, Joe, who is now lovingly referred to as Farmer Joe!). 

Long before she had her own horses, Kristan’s love language was hunting for and giving the “perfect” gift! However, when she began searching for those “perfect gifts” for her new horse friends and trainers, she was disappointed that she couldn’t find “THE STORE” with the selection of beautiful merchandise she was imagining. 

“serial entrepreneur”, she made the decision to solve that problem! She curated her own “perfect gift” collection and thus, Vanner House was born (previously known as Gypsy Dreams Equestrian Boutique). 

Her love of horses, beautiful finds, and sharing what she loves with others are the inspiration and heart behind her boutique. She sincerely hopes that you love the Vanner House collection and that the treasures you find bring you and/or your gift recipient great joy!
