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.
of Deer Creek Equestrian Center:
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.
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.
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
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 Annises
life-long love for horses, her equine degree and her
husbands experience with running a farm will make
Deer Creek Equestrian Center stand out as one of the
premier care boarding facilities in Central Texas.
