Welcome to the 2018 Akhal-Teke Association of America's Annual Christmas Fundraiser Auction! This is our biggest fundraiser of the year! This is a great way to support the promotion and preservation of the Akhal-Teke horse breed here in North America! So get your Santa hats and PayPal accounts ready. There are going to be some great items to bid on at this years auction! Click here to see what we have!
The Akhal-Teke Association of America (ATAA) is working to identify barriers for Akhal-Teke breeders and owners to register their horses both with the ATAA and in the closed Russian Studbook, VNIIK.
We need input from the Akhal-Teke community to help identify what these barriers are.
Any questions, please contact either Pat Johnston at firstname.lastname@example.org or
Amrita Ibold at Ibolds@rockisland.com
Please take this survey and then share it with others.

Not only does the ATAA have a breed booth at WEG (World Equestrian Games) September 11-23rd , but we have a RIDDEN DEMO in front of thousands on September 12th at 5 pm in Ring 1. We expect to talk Teke to thousands upon thousands of people during WEG – make sure your sale horse, stallion and/or farm is listed there!
We will have a Sale/Stallion/Farm ad book there for people to look at. Get your ads in to Catrina Quantrell asap at email@example.com . If you have a Teke or Teke cross for sale, standing at stud or would like to advertise your farm, we want your ad! Ads should be PDFs and fit on a stand 8 x11 sheet of paper. Non-ATAA members, we ask you put a small donation towards the booth and demo, link right below. Amount up to you, every little bit helps! Deadline is August 31st!
We are still looking for volunteers (online sign-up sheet) and donations.
We have raised over $10,000 so far (THANK YOU TO ALL THE FANTASTIC, GENEROUS DONORS!), but we still need more.
Our booth will be eye-catching and professional and we will be handing out thousands of postcards, brochures and DVDs.
We have an onsite camper at the venue (not cheap, but cheaper than a hotel by far)!
Everything costs money, so if you can help out, every little bit is appreciated.
Thank you everyone and we’ll see you at WEG!
Cathy, Catrina and the WEG Committee
One month to go and we were just notified that our Tekes will have a demo at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon, NC this September. No dates yet, except it will be during the first week.
This is amazing! Our horses will be in front of thousands upon thousands of spectators.
We are still looking for donations, or if you and your Teke or Teke cross would like to be in the demo, let us know asap and I'll give you the protocol.

The ATAA is sponsoring the Akhal-Teke in-hand class again at Dressage at Devon, in Devon, PA. This will be our third year running the AT class. They do have some changes this year:
Class sponsorship provides the opportunity to showcase your breed at the largest and most prestigious open breed show in the world. Since the 1970’s Dressage at Devon has been the “go to” show for breeders and owners of sport horses of every breed.
This year the show committee has made some significant changes to the schedule, creating a larger focus on the Individual Breed classes. To that end, the classes will now be held on Tuesday, September 25 in the Dixon Oval. This will allow time to reinstate the Parade of Breeds at the conclusion of the classes. During the Parade, the winners of each class are invited back into ring for special awards and the opportunity to have the announcer give a short description of the breed. In addition, new for 2018, there will be a wine and cheese reception for sponsors, owners and handlers to be held during the Parade of Breeds.
Additional benefits are listed below:
So, we also have the opportunity to be in the Parade of Breeds, our class will be held Tuesday, September 25th. If you are planning on going, please let one of your BOD members know, so we can figure out prizes, etc!
September-October will be busy for Tekes and Teke sporthorses: WEG, DAD and the AHA Distance Championships! We’re still looking for donation and volunteers, click here.
