The Akhal-Teke Horse Breed needs your help!
The mission: To gather the funds, volunteers and materials to host a professional, artistic and informational booth on the Akhal-Teke horse breed, worldwide, at the 2018 World Equestrian Games in Tryon, NC, USA.
The people: Everyone, worldwide, that is interested in promoting the Akhal-Teke, is invited to participate; with ideas, information, funds, photos, DVDs, etc. While the ATAA is spearheading the effort, you do not need to be a member to participate. This booth is about the BREED, not any country, organization or farm. Everyone is welcome to participate!
The opportunity: Over 500,000 people are expected to be at the Tryon Equestrian Center in person with daily attendance of 40,000-50,000 people. This is the major international championship event for eight core equestrian disciplines and we will be there representing the Akhal-Teke in a professional and artistically-produced booth – a golden opportunity to build awareness and expand the market for our fantastic breed.
BUT, WE NEED YOUR HELP!
WE NEED TO HAVE AT LEAST $6000 PLEDGED BY MARCH 9TH TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN. We will need to put a deposit down by the middle of March and we need to know that we can afford it.

I found out about this and went to make a donation.

That is my fault, I am just learning how to use the many features of the website. You can, however, go to the 'Donation' drop down button on the home page and click on it to get to buttons that actually work. I will try to get our web editor to hook the above buttons up very soon. Thank you very much for your interest, we need all the help we can get!
