It has been documented that similar horses were among the Sioux and Crow Indians at the beginning of the 19th century. Presumably, they came to them from Russian settlers who allegedly brought Transbaikal curly horses (Bashkirs) to the American continent.

However, whether they have any kindred relationship with the bred breed, no one has been able to establish reliably so far. Most experts are of the opinion that the appearance of such animals on the American continent is due to an accidental mutation.

Curly horses aroused particular interest in 1951. Then the winter in the USA turned out to be very cold and in the Nevada mountains the temperature dropped to -40 ° C.
