• to encourage Curly owners & breeders to be involved in Curly horse rescue.
The concept of Curly Horse Rescue was born after a single individual privately rescued a herd of 21 starved and neglected Curly horses from Canada. She arranged transportation, rescued and rehabilitated them, with the help of a handful of volunteers who raised funds to help her pay for their rescue. These volunteers realized that there was a need for Curly Horse Rescue, as Curly horses have been rescued by private individuals from those misinformed individuals who believed that Curlies did not require basic necessities like hoofcare and proper healthy feed. There have also been Curlies rescued by individuals from auctions, feedlots, and PMU farms as well as individual owners.
