About ABCR

My photo
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.


To put it in a nutshell, ABCR registers Curly Horses depending on parentage in 4 Books:
  1) Full Book (closed): ABCR foundation stock & offspring
  2) Blood% Book (closed): 1 parent from Full Book & 1 parent from Blood% Book
  3) Outcross Book (open): 1 parent from Full Book & 1 registered parent of another breed
  4) BLM Curly Mustang Book (open): Curly Haired BLM Mustangs & offspring

Not eligible
  - Matings of two straight coated horses
  - Horses with unknown parentage (Grade Horses)
  - Offspring with less than ½ fraction of Full Book or Mustang Book parentage
