Curly Stockhorse Preservation Project

The Curly Stockhorse Preservation Project is a voluntary, informal initiative.
Preservation Projects are sponsored by the Curly Stockhorse Registry (CSR) and
the Curly Horse Journal (CHJ). Participation is not required in any one to participate in any other.

Mission Statement: The Preservation Project has been an informal initiative to spread awareness to the decline in numbers of a truly wonderful breed / bloodline of horse. While we formed the CSR registry to help specify, identify and preserve rare western bloodlines of curly stockhorses that are in danger of extinction due to lack of awareness (out-crossing), the Preservation Project is just an extension or result of that same initiative. The Preservation Project(s) evolve and change as certain preservation projects develop or goals are met. Participation is enthusiastically welcomed on any level, or with any aspect of any of these efforts. We do everything we can to encourage help without asking for money (other than basic registration fees with the Curly Stockhorse Registry). Money is tight, and we try to barter and get by without money exchange when and where possible, to help preserve endangered horses. Like the registry, the Curly Preservation Project goals may include:
