I have been interested in Akhal-Tekes for a while now. I love the desert breeds and these, being rare, have a bit more charm for me than an Arabian (though I do love Arabians). Anyways, I was looking around a bit on the net and found a breeder in B.C. Long story short, I was able to get a internship with them and will be heading out there in June this year. They raise these horses for endurance racing.
I am wondering if anyone on here has owned or handled one? Just wondering about temperament, gaits, etc.
I have handled 'hot' horses, Arabian crosses, two long yearling TBs, and a Saddlebred cross.
They're stallion is Maruk
Thank you in advance!
