Curly Stock Horses

This breed of Curly Horse has beautiful conformation, and is versatile for ranch work or other uses. It was bred over millenia by master breeders. Almost extinct, this nearly forgotten line has a superior temperament and work ethic. The Curly Stockhorse Preservation Project is a voluntary, informal initiative, working with the International Heritage Horse Association (IHHA) and the Curly Stockhorse studbook. Join us.

Bad Warrior stallions

FOR SALE: This stallion is available to a Bad Warrior Preservation Program breeders. Ask about him, or about frozen Warrior Seek Justice ABC-3675, 2007 14.2hh grullo curly stallion... Warrior Coyote Crow Horse X Seek Grace Warrior; owned by Killingsworth Ranch, Agra, Oklahoma. Being that Justice is an extreme curly (presumed KRT25/KRT25), and a nice quality all Hammrich bred stallion, he could be bred to any mares (he is "all Bad Warrior," and all his babies out of SC or QH mares would be heterozygous curlies) and contribute greatly to the preservation effort. semen.
breeder: Barbara Carroll, Texas, from Ernie Hammrich and Crow Country Curly horses.
owner: Cody Killingsworth
DCC Sioux WarriorDCC Sioux Warrior ABCR-2451; ICHO-432D, 1998 grullo + grey curly stallion, owned by: Annise Finch, Deer Creek Farms, Troy (central) TX. Shipped semen may be available @ I remember drooling over this horse's dam, she was a gorgeous grulla mare. She was not stock type, but she was beautiful. I don't know if we ever knew her origin, bloodline-wise? This stud's sire was Wendy Robinson's big rugged 16hh grey stud that Ernie had bred, a product of one year when Ernie infused a dab of draft (homesteader type) blood in the mix, to add power and bone. This horse, although not strongly stockhorse type, is middle of the road... and nothing wrong with that; he should be useful in infusing outside blood, and still carry the Warrior line forward.
Warrior Mead Berndt LakotaWarrior Mead Berndt Lakota, owned by Angie Gaines, Golden Curls Ranch, Texas. With rugged bone and straight legs on four corners, Lakota exhibits a bright flaxen sorrel color like many of the old Berndt horses. I have honestly never seen a straight side-conformation photo of this boy, so I don't know if he has stockhorse conformation or not. Mare owners might possibly need to see more of him to use him on the right mares for preservation type efforts.
Warrior Lynx ("Lazy")CCCH Warrior Lynx 1998, 14.3 dun stallion owned by Louise Parker, Llangollen, Wales, UK. Photo by ©Sorrel, Germany. This gorgeous hunk stallion had the temperament everyone thinks of, once they have owned a Warrior horse. These horses make their owners look good. And the better trainer the owner is, the better they get. Louise has bred ole "Lazy" to a number of good mares, and has a nice little herd of curly stockhorses. Lazy is a GBED carrier, so is only bred to negative mares. He is an amazing horse and has made a name for himself on both sides of the ocean.

Jane's coltFOR SALE: Jane's big growthy extreme colt Vinita, Oklahoma [presumed homozygous KRT25/KRT25]. Available to preservation breeders. Jane and I have researched and put back together this colt's probable pedigree. This colt (I believe) is a 3/4 Warrior, 1/4 Damele bred colt. And he looks like he might just make a horse.

Jane died recently (I was so sad to hear about that) and this colt has another owner now (I don't know who).

Akicita sicaFOR SALE:
"Dave Archambault II "<>
former chairman, Standing Rock rez, North Dakota
The outcrossing in this horse's pedigree reduced his quality, but he is pictured here for history. He produced one breeding son, that looked just like him; any further offspring are unknown; we lost track.

grullo curly stallion, Akicita sica
1/2 Nokota
1/4 Seekers Warrior (SanSan)
1/4 APHA brown mare

WYO Warrior Son Spirit
2018 grey son from Jeff Parker, and out of one of 6 almost identical close to full-sister curly Waggoner mares that Ernie and I bred
(waiting on photos from John). Can't wait for news on this boy. Old original Hammrich bred Bad Warrior lineage all the way. Stay tuned... We have future genetics sharing plans in the making.

John did buy this grey stud, and did get to use him a season or 2 before he died in a winter accident. I lost touch with John... will keep trying.

Amy Wall says:
"Hi Donna, My friend Amanda Andrews owns this extreme mare, foaled in 2001. Is there still an effort to preserve these warrior lines? She does not want to sell the mare but might be willing to let me get a foal off her. I do not have a stock type curly stallion myself, my stud is out of gaited lines. We are located in Peshtigo, Wisconsin."

I sold this filly to a guy in Michigan in (I believe) 2001. I called her Warrior Fox Fly. I thought she was the prettiest extreme foal I had ever raised.

The owner has expressed no (affordable) offers or interest in preservation breeding at the time of this writing.

  I have a 15 year old Warrior bred buckskin ranch gelding. Sonny is quite a horse. He is a 16 hh curly, powerful and durable, with a light mouth and light on his feet. His sire was Mystic's Mountain Sunrise ABC-2592 who went back to Dameles Brown Curley and Nevada Red (was owned by Glady in OK). His dam was Warriors Queen Sue P-2406 (was owned by Crow Country Curly Horses and sold to Gladys). "Polo" was by Warrior's Range King ABC-1351 by Bad Warrior ABC-1330 and Dakota Sioux ABC-862. Warrior's Queen Sue ABC P-1355 by a Hammrich range stud (quarter horse) and Miss Berndt Warrior ABC P-1326. These are, as you know, some the best foundational Curly horse lines possible. Steve Moore Spokane, WA.


"George is the biggest curly I've seen; last I measured him he was 15.3 and he's super thick as well. His birthdate was 05/29/2006. He was out of Angelica, and sired by a big strong Morgan stud. He is my riding horse." ~ Sara Woods, Utah, owner.
