Akhal Teke - The Celestial Horse

Among 250 equine breeds known today on the planet the Akhal-Teke steed is generally viewed as a standout amongst the most old ones. Numerous analysts view it as the most antiquated one. Of aged noblesse, more seasoned than that of the Arabian or the English Thoroughbred, the Akhal-Teke is a full-blooded stallion that is second to none.

The Akhal-Teke's starting points are lost oblivious of hundreds of years, or even centuries. Cuneiform writings found in Assyria let us know about steeds or, as they were then called "jackasses from the mountains" from Midis and Urartu. Tiglatpalasar (1115-1077 B.c.) kept in touch with: "I seized immense crowds of stallions, donkeys, and other steers from their knolls. I made them pay a tribute of 1200 stallions."

Herodotus gives a portrayal of ten holy steeds in wonderful bridle that were preparing for the hallowed chariot of Akhuramazda in the armed force of Xerxes. Those steeds were reared in the Nisei plain "in the middle of Balkh and Midis." They were smooth, had long, thin and adaptable necks, expansive eyes, obviously formed heads, slight and solid legs.
