More Akhal Tekes: I can't stop myself

Check out the Akhal Teke video below -- one of a series I'll be publishing in the next few days. This first one has some lovely dressage footage, but I love the beginning closeup of Kambarbay's face. What a lovely eye and expression -- there is such wisdom and kindness in his demeanor. And that luminous color! I'd love to see him in person.  Sigh.

The music is great too... Oh, and the rider is awesome, and also easy on the eye.


  1. I think I just fell in love with that rider!! I blame the music

  2. I saw on TV that those horses "glow" like that due to the way their hairs are made. I think it was a flatter hair shaft, that deflects light better, and creates the "glow”.

  3. That rider has a terrifically soft seat. I imagine the ride is easy on the horse and vice versa.

  4. Kambarbay is bred and born in Estonia, at Akhal-Teke EST farm (www.akhalteke.ee). We also have his full sister (who is expecting her second foal this year), as well as several half brothers and sisters.
    Kambarbay has definitely found the best possible home for himself - they are doing just marvellous job with him for the promotion of Akhal-Teke breed!
