Please respond to our survey on what YOU want for the 2016 Rare Breeds Show in Lexington Virginia, June 14th, 15th and 16th 2016. There will be Teke and Teke sporthorse only classes, along with classes open to all participating breeds. The Show committee is in the process of figuring out what classes people want, approximately how many people plan to attend and we’re also trying to get an idea of how many horses we can expect. All these decisions will influence how many judges we can afford and what people experience at the Show itself. Remember, this is open to ALL Akhal-Teke and Akhal-Teke sporthorses, registered or not, and you do not have to be an ATAA member to participate. The survey will be open until November 15th, so please have your opinions heard and we’ll see everyone next June! If you know of anyone who might be interested, please pass this on.
