Absolute Akhal-Teke is dedicated to the preservation and promotion of an an athletic, beautiful, hardy and unique breed of horse, through breeding, sales, showing and training.

The Akhal-Teke is a rare breed among horses. There are only about 600 in North America. A pure "desert-bred", it has qualities most other horses do not.

In Conformation the Akhal-Teke has a light, elegant build and a distinctive conformation: a neck that is straight, long and often thin, set high on excellent sloping shoulders; long tapering, aristocratic face; beautifully shaped mobile ears; wide nostrils and large expressive eyes having a proud fiery gaze. Normal height is between 15 and 16 hands, with horses both larger and smaller, weight between 900 to 1100 pounds. The Akhal-Teke is lean, long, and, typically, narrow through the chest, making him an extremely comfortable ride. The skin is very thin with a short, fine and silky coat, often with a metallic glow to it. The overall effect is of the long, lean grace of a greyhound. Magnificent action, free and flowing; in all paces a soft, gliding, elastic stride.

This exceptional horse excels in Endurance, Eventing, Dressage, among other disciplines.

A BIT OF HISTORY OF THE AKHAL-TEKE

The Akhal-Teke was created in Southern Turkmenistan by the Teke tribe at the Akhal Oasis. Located away from the trade routes, bordered by the Kara Kum desert and Kopet Dag mountains, the Akhal Oasis is in an area not subjected to continual conquest or occupation. This isolation, along with the great pride the Teke tribesmen took in the purity of their horses has produced a breed of ancient lineage and great purity.

As the chief mount of Turkoman warriors for centuries, the Akhal-Teke developed endless stamina and, from the harsh desert environment, the ability to withstand great extremes of temperature. With fresh forage available only three months of the year in the arid desert, the Teke tribesmen developed their own special methods of horse management. Kept in small bands, tethered to stakes and blanketed, the Akhal-Teke were fed pellets consisting of alfalfa, barley and mutton fat. This type of management resulted in a horse that can subsist on small amounts of food and water, becomes devoted to its master and is suspicious of strangers. The blanketing also enhanced the metallic sheen of their coat, which is a source of great pride for their owners.
