A gift from heaven

This kindness means that the attitude of the Turkmen people towards the horses is rooted in the patriotic feelings.

Our ancestors used to say, ‘a horse is an aim’, ‘when you wake up in the morning, see your father first, and then see your horse’, ‘where there is a horse, there will be a holiday’, as well as ‘a girl-like horse’, ‘a bride-like horse’.

Absent is a world-famous horse

Born from the horses Arab and Bakkara, Absent was descended from the famous horse Boynav (born in 1885). In 1955–1968, Absent left a significant mark in equestrian sports. At the Exhibition of Achievements of National Economy in Moscow in 1958, Absent was awarded a Level I Certificate for beauty among the Ahalteke horses.

The values of the Turkmen people

The Ahalteke horses are one of the sacred, world-famous, and glorious values of the Turkmen people.
