Yarraleigh is a small Curly Horse stud located in Gippsland, Victoria.  We started out in Ballarat, but relocated to the coast in late 2018.

Moving from our Ballarat picturesque 150 acre farm to a smaller 35 acres, we then downsized our breeding program and only bred 2 or 3 curlies per year.  In mid 2020, we sold 2 stallions and 5 mares in foal to Ti-Tree Curly Horse Stud in Crookwell NSW who will continue on where we left off and we will now only breed the odd foal for ourselves.  We will put up a link to Ti Tree Curlies as soon as it becomes available, but in the meantime, you can find them on Facebook.

I have been allergic to horses for as long as I can remember, but for as long as I can remember have always loved them.  In 2008 I decided that the effects of horses on me was just getting too much to put up with and I had to either give them up or find an alternative.  Fortunately for me I was able to find an alternative being the Curly Horses.

Initially we imported frozen semen from Canada and have bred 3 wonderful foals (a colt and 2 fillies – Caesar, Zena and Aphrodite).  After getting these foals on the ground, we loved the breed so much we decided to import a stallion to bring this wonderful horse to Australia (see our stallion pictured – “Moonlight”).  Moonlight arrived in June 2011 and he is absolutely wonderful.  Friendly, easy going and fantastic to handle.  Moony has had 50+ curly babies in Australia and has now been gelded and living his life out as a riding horse….

Caesar is now 10 and is also standing at stud and we just adore his babies. Caesar is a gorgeous 14.3hh Bay with bling.  His colour testing is Ee Aa and he carries a Sabino gene.

We have 3 farm bred colts as well.  

Merlin is a Smoky Black (EE aa nCr 5 panel negative) Colt and is a stocky beautiful boy.

Phinneus is a Buckskin (EE Aa nCr 5 panel negative) Colt and he is homozygous Curly.  So no matter what breed of horse you put him to you will get a curly foal.  Very exciting this fella….

Odin is a Palomino (ee aa) Colt out of Caesar and is just a gorgeous boy and he has also been sold to Ti Tree Curly Horse Stud in NSW.  Odin was tested late in 2020 and found to be homozygous Curly.

I welcome you to come and meet our beautiful Curly Horses and experience what I have with them.
