Ahal-Teke Horses Conquer Germany
On Sunday, June 2, numerous horse lovers set off to the Achal Tekkiner stable in the valley between the Wildberg Gultlingen and Holzbronn region (south-west of Germany, on the border with France and Switzerland). The Consul of Turkmenistan in Frankfurt attended the event as an honored guest.
The diplomat praised the impressive and painstaking work of the owner of the plant to gain popularity of the Akhal-Teke horse breed in Germany, whose historical homeland is Turkmenistan and which they call "winged".
He also told the audience that there is a national holiday in honor of the noble racers in Turkmenistan, which is widely celebrated every year. Numerous exhibitions, horse beauty contests and, of course, exciting horse racing competitions are timed to it.
Visitors to the Achal Tekkiner plant also learned how Turkmen anxiously treat their horses, whose image is perpetuated in folklore and numerous proverbs.
Guests with great pleasure, especially small ones, took the opportunity to ride in horse-drawn carriages and take part in many other entertainments. The mood for all was created by live music. A surprise for visitors was the drawing of a one-day excursion trip to the factory and a weekly summer vacation program for children.
