Use and characteristics of the Akhal-Teke
The long-legged “golden” horses of Turkmenistan have been prized and admired for centuries. They stand between 14.2 (58 inches/147 cm) and 16 hands (64 inches/163 cm) high. While not overly tall, they are incredibly athletic, thanks to their long bodies and legs. An interesting conformation point is that their lower legs have relatively short, strong cannon bones, so the additional length is mainly above the knee. Since the quality of a horse’s feet is often the most important consideration, anyone planning to buy an Akhal-Teke will be reassured to discover that these horses have some of the finest and strongest known. The magnificent metallic honey gold that is seen in certain special individuals is particularly cherished by breeders who sell an Akhal-Teke. The breed displays many other coat colours too, including black with a gorgeous purple-blue metallic shine. Bred for the harshest of conditions, they can withstand the heat of the desert and thrive where many other breeds would struggle.
