"All our Caspians are handled and trained with kindness and respect"
-- Chuck & Francie Stull
In our focused and ongoing commitment to producing
the finest Caspians in the world, we have imported and bred the world's
best. Although the Caspian is extremely rare, numbering only 1,000 in
the world, we have extensively imported and bred Caspians over the
last several years and we now have a herd of over 100 exquisite Caspians
here at Kristull Ranch, on the outskirts of Austin, Texas.
We now have the vast majority of Caspian Blood
Lines available in the world, which was crucial in building a foundation
herd here in the U.S. Our Caspians have come from Great Britain, Belgium,
both Eastern and Western Australia and New Zealand.
Our breeding program is headed by Francie Stull, who has a
Degree in Genetics with a minor in Anatomy and Physiology. We are experienced
in breeding in hand, pasture breeding and collection for AI usage, to assure
safety of all horses and to insure accurate pedigrees.
All AI breeding as well as chilling and shipping around the
nation are handled by Chuck Stull with the assistance and oversight of Dr. David
All our Caspians are DNA tested at the University of
Kentucky to insure accurate pedigrees and to assist Dr. Cothran with his
on-going genetic research. All our Caspians are microchipped soon after birth
and carry a permanent positive ID.
We offer the best selection in Caspian Stock that has ever
been available! We can supply Stallions, Brood Mares, young stock, mature
geldings and mares for riding or driving. We can hand select Caspians to meet
All our Caspians are trained and handled with kindness and
respect and foals are imprinted at birth. The mutual respect and affection
between the Caspians and the humans at our ranch is always evident.
Whether you are interested in starting your own breeding
program or purchasing several Caspians for riding or driving, we can customize
plans to suit your needs. Prices average $5,000 to $15,000 depending on age and
gender of the horses and terms are available.
We love nothing more than to show our Caspians and help
others to become involved with them. You are cordially invited to visit
Kristull Ranch, as this is the ultimate way to see how incredible these Little
Ancient Royal Horses from Persia are in person! We are more than happy to help
you arrange travel plans or accommodations, as well as providing transportation
to and from the Austin-Bergstrom airport if needed. Please come see us!
