Quite recently, my colleagues and I had to make a trip towards the Kopetdag Mountains. We had driven already a decent distance from the city, when we saw an amazing miracle – horses grazing on the plain. We clung to the window to get a better view and to enjoy the beautiful Ahalteke horses.
The entire history of the Turkmen people is linked inextricably with these amazing, noble and grateful horses. Their affection for a man, devotion and courage, fidelity and understanding have become the crucial factors of love and respect of the Turkmen people for the horses. Our ancestors, who created the Ahalteke horse breed many centuries ago, put their heart and soul into it and were ready to give their lives for their impeccable creation.
