Foundation for Shackleford Horses

Carteret CountyVisit our WebsitePreservation



Our mission is to protect and preserve the Shackleford horses.


This organization was founded with support from the general public as a result of concern for the future existence of these horses, and the determination to preserve a culturally important and historically significant asset, in genetically viable numbers.  All persons with the Foundation, including the Board of Directors, work groups, attorneys, accountants, advisors, and Webmaster are unpaid volunteers.  It is our objective that History on Hooves, in the form of these living legends, will remain an integral part of the cultural heritage and history of Carteret County and the State of North Carolina.
