Wow, the Akhal Teke has lovely movement, and Molly is very pretty.

I love Akhal-Tekes! I just have one question though. How do you say it?

Thank-you :)

I've only heard very few people pronounce Akhal-Teke and they've said "Ah-kahl Tea-Key" but after finding a video regarding my boy's breeder and his sire Mamuk, CNN pronounces them Ahkal Take-a. So I've been going with that!

I have heard, "ah kul te kay"

Interestingly, in the video they spell it "Akhal teka" like they're saying it - I wonder if they simply say/spell it differently in Russia, or if they're spelling it phonetically?

I know a couple who endurance race on their Akhal Teke's and they pronounce it like "teak" with no emphasis on the E at the end. Wikipedia lists it as being sounded like "teak" or "teh-key". I've never heard it pronounced with the A sound before.

Beautiful photos anyway!

I always have read it as Ak-ey Teak. I'm not sure why though...

Tito's horses one of my models in Russia) And I was there not one time (at that farm in the video) Glad to see it here :)

The right spelling of breed - akhal-teke (with accent to last letter)
