Akhal Teke horses; fast, agile and delicate. They are the pride of Turkmenistan. Akhal Teke horses also draw attention with their performance in great harmony with their riders. The acrobatics that jockeys perform on them are highly appreciated.
The General Art Director of Galkinish National Equestrian Team, Pigi Bayramdurdiye told us about Ahal Teke horses.
“Akhal Teke horses are a part of our culture, an unique heritage of the Turkmen.
Our children are introduced to horses at a very young age. Over time, a special bond develops between the horse and the jockey. In this way, They understane each other and their trust in each other increase.”
Galkinish National Equestrian Team rehearses for hours every day with Akhal Teke horses. As a result of their hard work, the equestrian team is deemed worthy of many awards at international festivals.
