About Deer Creek Equestrian Center
Deer Creek Equestrian Center is located at the Southeast corner of Deer Creek Farms, a 477 acre farm in Bell County. Known as Deer Creek Farms for over 22 years, the facility grew, and took on its own name in 2020.

Mission of Deer Creek Equestrian Center:
Deer Creek Equestrian Center is committed to providing a quality boarding program in Central Texas. We believe that quality care is essential for the health and well-being of any horse and we strive to offer the best care available. Horses are healthiest and happiest when they are in their natural environment in a herd out on pasture. Therefore, we offer pasture board and large paddocks. However that situation is not always convenient for a horse owner, or a special needs horse, so Deer Creek Equestrian Center also offers large stalls to allow horses plenty of room to move around and lay down. We want to keep your horse active and healthy.

The breeding program is centered around the American Curly horse, also known as the American Bashkir Curly, because the breed, which is a unique and rare breed, offers many advantages over conventional straight-haired horses. American Curly Horses are considered to be hypoallergenic. Many people who react violently to animals or horses do not react to certain curly horses. One of our missions is to make this rare and unique breed available to the public in Central Texas which would provides a way for allergy sufferers to take advantage of an opportunity to be involved in equine activities.

More about the American Curly Horse:
The American Curly Horse is known first for its curly hair, which ranges from loose waves to tight curls. The hair tends to be hypoallergenic due to a reduction or absence of dander/protein. The uniqueness of the horse does not stop there though. Most curly horses have wonderful, laid back personalities, and are very smart. They love attention, especially from people. Curly horses do not seem to be scared of anything, but rather curious about everything. These horses require the same amount of care that “regular” horses do, although DCF is of the opinion that due to the nature of their hair, they require more attention when it comes to grooming. Deer Creek Farms has chosen to specialize in the American Curly Horse because of their uniqueness, and their disposition.

About the Owners:
Annise holds a Bachelor of Animal Science in Horse Management from Tarleton State University. She has has a passion for horses since she can remember, and is thrilled that she can spend her days doing what she loves to do best. Annise specializes in Breeding and Stable Management. Her husband Fred grew up on the family farm, Shiloh Land and Cattle Company. Growing up, Fred helped with the daily farm chores, and as a teenager, Fred helped manage and operate the Farm. Fred is also a mechanical design engineer who designs many of the buildings you see at the Facility. We feel that the combination of Annise’s life-long love for horses, her equine degree and her husband’s experience with running a farm will make Deer Creek Equestrian Center stand out as one of the premier care boarding facilities in Central Texas.
