Welcome to Central Asian Equines. We are committed to the preservation of the Akhal-Teke horse, one of the oldest and purest breeds of horse remaining in the world today, living pieces of history. Descendents of the harsh Central Asian desert region, they are ancient, noble, and revered. They have contributed their genes and beauty to numerous light horse breeds present today and are finally experiencing enough growth to ensure their survival for future generations to cherish.
We are beginning our 27th year of involvement with this highly addictive breed, and continue to firmly believe that they are the world's premiere riding breed, with their unique combination of lightness, elegance, athleticism, and intelligence. It only takes one ride to experience the incomparable feeling.
Central Asian Equines is the most-decorated Akhal-Teke breeding farm in North America, recognized not only by the mother studbook in Russia but also by other experienced and respected breeders. Our horses' accomplishments include:
- 2008 US National Champion Purebred Akhal-Teke: Samovar, born and bred at CAE, also Best Purebred Stallion and Best North American-Bred
- 2008 US National Champion Partbred Mare: Stoli Gold, sired by our flagship stallion Gindarkh 13
- 2008 US National Most Versatile Partbred: Kazakhstan, owned, trained and competed by CAE
- 2010 Best Weanling in Canada: Seljuk, out of our purebred broodmare Dushka
- 2010 Canadian 'Future of the Breed' mare recipient: Azeri, bred by CAE and out of our purebred broodmare Gozakhal, also granddam to 2010 Canadian Best Weanling Seljuk
- 2010 Canadian 'Future of the Breed' stallion recipient: Dazyrdi, bred by CAE and sired by our flagship stallion Gindarkh 13
While we are very pleased to receive these accolades, we remain humbled and grateful that many of our sales are repeat clients who have acquired more than one Akhal-Teke from us. We are also pleased that while so many of our offspring are successful in competition, many are also cherished family companions who mean the world to their owners. We are only standing one of our stallions to outside mares at this time, but please feel free to contact us by email if you are interested in our broodmare leasing program.
