The Akhal-Teke may look delicate, but it was bred for sport and endurance runs in the harsh deserts of Turkmenistan, where water and food are scarce.The Akhal-Teke is one of the oldest horse breeds in the world, a descendant of the Nicean horse, and ancient to its home in Turkmenistan, where its shimmering coat blends in well with its desert surroundings.

Akhal Teke - I can really see the resemblance to the greyhound here. Beautiful horse, wish photo included legs and feet.

The Akhal-Teke's most notable and defining characteristic is the natural metallic bloom of its coat. This is especially seen in the palominos and buckskins, as well as the lighter bays, although some horses "shimmer" more than others.They have a rather slim body and ribcage (like an equine version of the greyhound), with a deep chest. The conformation is typical of horses bred for endurance over distance. The Akhal-Tekes are lively and alert, with a reputation for bonding to only one perso
