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.
