Petra Maresova proposes to hold an Akhal Teke Sports event in the Czech
Repblic at the famous racetrack Pardubice at the beginning of
September. As no other association is planning a championship this year
(and in 2012 there was none), we think it would be a good idea. We can
promote this idea so we can not only show our horses in sport, but also
have them assessed by MAAK judges:
Each year, first weekend in September, is organised big
horse event in the Czech Republic, exhibition „Horses in Action“ at the famous
racetrack in Pardubice. Our association traditionally takes part in this event
and present our horses there.
I would like to offer the opportunity to come with your
horses and present your breeding and association (we have a big association stand
for this purpose). There are several possibilities of the presentation of
horses and also we can organize a Teke race (not necessary on the „professional
basis“, but the exhibition one). If there are enough horses, we can also organize
a championship. The exhibition is popular, the number of visitors is between
15-18.000, so it is a really interesting place for promotion of our breed.
Stabling (together with bedding) and hay is for free
during exhibition days, accommodation is available in nearby hotels or for
less demanding ones in the association stand.
