VNIIK wants to stop accepting purebred AT registration for older non-VNIIK registered horses soon (older horses that not have been VNIIK registered yet). This means that the day is coming that if your horses are NOT in the closed VNIIK studbook, they will NOT be considered Purebred Akhal-Tekes.
They want current year foals registered by October 1st (or the process started):
‘Previously unregistered purebred ancestors will be “noted” in VNIIK with a foal registration number for a fee of approximately $41 per unregistered ancestor or parent, paid by our grant.
This is instead of a full blown VNIIK passport of each unregistered parent/ancestor of $186 each. Contact the registrar or Registration Secretary to see if your horse’s ancestors qualify for this program. YOU STILL NEED TO PAY FOR YOUR HORSE’S VNIIK REGISTRATION!!!!’

The 2019 Akhal-Teke National Championship Endurance Ride will be held in conjunction with the Arabian Horse Association Distance Nationals in Vinita, OK on Friday October 25, 2019 at the “Owl Hoot Spook” ride. The ride is located at the Franks Ranch and is an AERC-sanctioned 50-mile ride.
Please let us know ASAP if you are planning on attending with your AT or AT cross so we can plan awards! :)
We are also looking for an Akhal-Teke enthusiast that would be interested in volunteering at the ride as our "Akhal-Teke ambassador"! Contact Betsy Wandler for details @ [email protected], we could even arrange housing if needed!
