The August edition of 'Endurance News', the magazine of the AERC (American Endurance Rides Conference) features a page long article about the Akhal-Teke entitled "Meet the Breeds- Akhal-Teke", by Cathy Leddy. The article was suggested by Tim Floyd, who also acted as an editor and the original article included interviews with ATAA Endurance riders, Jas Shearer-McMahon and Connie Rawski. As printed, those weren't included, but perhaps they will be in the online 'Extra' that the AERC puts out.
