Ahkal teke anyone?

I'm just wondering if any one has a ahkal teke. I love their looks, and was just wondering about personality.

Me aunt had a palomino Teke mare,
She imported her from Russia.
She was georgious and had a very good temper.
They move more catlike than other horses,they're very elegant.
She was quite sensible but very social to other horses.
Ankaya often get hot when riding but the didn't spook.
She died a few years ago.

I never really cared for the breed until I read about them. The International Encyclopedia of Horse Breeds by Bonnie Hendricks has some great information, and it really gave me a respect for the breed and its history. It's amazing to think that they may be even older than Arabians, and are thought to have been the main contributors to the Arabian breed (Arabian lovers would probably come after me with a pitchfork-wielding lynch mob if they heard me say that).

Anyway, I've never worked with one, but I hear they're a lot like Thoroughbreds and Arabs - hotblooded, but sensitive and intelligent. They were warhorses back in the day, so I imagine they must be of fine temperament. At least the high-quality ones.

I have never seen an Ahkal Teke horse in real life, but I, personally, from PICTURES, don't care for the way they look. I do love the golden, shiny coat that many of them have, very pretty.

Love them... Love them... love them. I've competed against a few in eventing and have gotten to know thier owners. They are a bit like TBs and Arabs in they can be over focused on their work and sensitive. They are all heart and athleticism. However they seem more sensible about spooking. And well.... they're gorgeous. =)

Only down fall is they tend to be on the slight side... not the best for a rider that's all legs. Doesn't keep me from wanting to call on ever single one I see for sale.

Thank you!

These stallions are imported from Usbegisthan, they are all between 3 and 5 years and we just started to work with them.

No problem about the spelling, this is the name of one of my horses and means "strawberry" in Hungarian...

Look up them at our homepage

I have never ridden one, but a friend of mine got a beautiful gelding to use for upper level dressage. The metallic sheen from its coat was amazing. He seemed very tractable and easy to train.

I moved and lost track of her, so don't know how well he did.
