The Tinker has a beautiful piebald coat, a magnificent mane, a full tail and lots of hair on the fetlocks. In the Tinker are the mighty Shire horse, the powerful Clydesdale, the majestic Friesian and the sure-footed Dales Pony. These were bred by travellers to the UK and Ireland to make for a strong and sturdy pull- and workhorse. At the same time they stayed very much on top of the horses characters. They should be absolutely gentle and reliable. To date, the Tinker is known and loved for these characteristics. It is therefore often used as a therapy horse.

FUN FACT In winter, some Tinker horses grow a funny-looking moustache.
