Welcome to the wonderful world of the American Bashkir Curly Horse!
These horses with the curly coat are a rare and beautiful breed, coming in different conformation types, but generally with a wonderful disposition that usually makes them great beginner horses. They are not just Curly Horses, but the curly coat seems to be also hypoallergenic. People who suffer from horse allergies often react very little, if at all, to the Curly Horse.
The American Bashkir Curly Horse Registry (ABCR) was founded in 1971 and is the oldest Registry of Curly Horses. The goals of the ABCR are to preserve this rare breed (today approximately 4,000 horses worldwide), to promote the Curly Horse as much as possible in shows and in the media, provide education about the special features of the horses, and to protect the genetic pool of the small breed population worldwide.
