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 horse breed, 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.


Register Horses at ABCR is easy.

Here is a step by step description of how to register horses at ABCR:
  • Pay the registration, best by using our Shop items: http://www.abcregistry.org/#/abcr-shop/4556739651/Registration. You can pay using paypal, check or your credit card.
  • Fill in a Pre-Registration application: http://www.abcregistry.org/#/forms/4560672165. In order to do this, download the Pre-Registration Application as PDF FILE OR fill in the Application ONLINE.
  • Wait a little. The ABCR Registrar will send you the UCDavis DNA Registration kit by eMail (registrar@abcregistry.org).
  • PULL (DO NOT CUT) 20-30 tail or mane hairs by wrapping hairs around forefinger. For foals, use tail hairs only. The Root Bulbs are needed!
  • Tape the hairs in the form as described therein.
  • Fold the form as described therein.
  • Put the form with the hair preferably into a cushioned envelope.
IMPORTANT: From outside the US, you need to deliver an Import Permit that comes with the eMail:
  •  Print Import Permit and Statement of Health letter.
  •  Read each of the 3 statements on the “Statement of Health” letter.
  •  If all 3 statements are true, please print your name, telephone number, sign and date  the letter. If any one of these statements are not true the Veterinary Genetics Laboratory cannot accept the samples.
  • Fold the Import Permit and Statement of Health letter and place them in an envelope.
  • Write the words “IMPORT PERMIT” on the outside of the envelope.
  • Tape the envelope to the outside of your cushioned envelope with the words “IMPORT PERMIT” facing out.
Once the sample has been verified by UCDavis, the Registrar will issue the pedigree certificate and send it to you together with the DNA results.

Thanks for registering your Horse at ABCR!
