A Horse is a Horse

The American Bashkir Curly Horse is certainly a special breed of horse,

but a Curly is still a horse.

A Curly can spook, balk, buck or step on your toes, just like any other horse!

Handling and caring for a Curly involves the same considerations as any other horse: safe handling practices, regular maintenance (including de-wormer, vaccinations, farrier care, and the right type and amount of food), informed training, and preparedness for the unexpected.

Horses are quick and powerful and, by nature, can be unpredictable.  Their actions and their responses to people, other horses, and other objects, movements or sounds can result in situations dangerous to people, property, and/or other horses with little or no warning.  It is important to us that you are aware that the same inherent dangers involved in equine activities in general also apply to Curlies.

On our website, and in other forms of communication, we post descriptions and make statements about our horses and Curlies in general.  This information is based on our personal experiences and individual opinions and is for general reference only.  None of our posted information or written or verbal statements constitute a binding representation or warranty regarding a particular horse or Curlies in general.

Each individual must make their own independent determination as to whether a breed or a particular horse is appropriate for him or her and his or her family or business.  We are happy to answer your questions and discuss with you our individual experiences with our horses.  It is important to note, however, that horses may act differently at different times and are influenced by many, many factors, such as venue, handler or rider, handling practices and training techniques, tack, other horses and other animals, sounds, movement, objects, weather, and many other environmental factors, including some imperceptible to humans.

We have enjoyed our experience with our Curlies and believe in the breed and our horses.  We hope the same for anyone interested in our horses and believe that awareness about the nature of horses is critical to a safe and positive experience.
