Performance Trail Horses & American Bashkir Curlies

 

At SFT Performance Trail Horses, we prepare our horses for the trail and train them on the trail for success in any discipline.  Just like any performance discipline, in trail riding, whether competitive or recreational, the connection between the horse and rider is critical.  A horse that is responsive and supple on the trail means a better ride — one that is more enjoyable, scores higher, takes you to more places, and is safer.

Training on the trail helps horses learn to be composed and responsive at the walk, trot, and canter while navigating brush, obstacles, ravines, and water and confronting wildlife, vehicles, noises in the brush, or whatever else we encounter on the trail.  Training on the trail puts a foundation on a horse like no other.  Of course it isn’t all hard work — there’s always time to enjoy ambling calmly through the woods or riding into the sunset.  Learn more about our SFT Performance Trail training or see SFT Performance Trail Horses available for sale.

 

The American Bashkir Curly Horse was discovered among the wild mustang herds of the American West. Bred tough for the open range, the Curly Horse is a unique and hardy breed. American Bashkir Curlies are renowned for their gentle nature, keen ability to learn, and willing attitude — and for having a curly, hypoallergenic coat. Today, Curly Horses excel in competitive events, work on farms and ranches throughout the country, and endear themselves to families all over the world.

Curly Pines Ranch is nestled among the Lost Pines of Bastrop, Texas. We breed, raise, sell, and preserve American Bashkir Curly Horses. We breed for demeanor as well as conformation. Our objective is to raise Curly Horses that are comfortable around people, have been well cared for, and have solid age-appropriate training that provides a foundation for more specific learning. The way we look at it, our Curlies should meet you at the gate, stand patiently for the farrier, load easily on the trailer, take you wherever you want to go, and, most importantly, warm your heart.
