Staying Connected in 2012

Good Morning! 

The RAC will not be held in 2012. This blog will remain live for visitors to read and as a resource via the search engines for those looking for more information about the Curly Horse. But all authors have been removed for the 2012 year, which means no more new posts.

To stay connected, please visit where I have some personal blogs listed and you can stay in touch that way. (if anyone is not listed there, please email me and I will add you asap:

Also, if you are a curly horse owner, some gals have developed a new facebook page to continue sharing, posting challenges and encouraging riding/promoting.

Please visit Curly Horse Country regularly for the latest in Curly Horse information.

Blessings to you all in 2012!

Enjoy those curlies!
