27-01-2013: 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:

Dear colleagues,

 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.

 If you are interested, don┤t hesitate to contact me for more information.

Best regards,

Petra Maresova
