“Paradise” horses are true symbol of our rapidly developing independent Motherland. Nowadays, new opportunities are being created for worthy continuation of the glorious path of the Ahal-Teke horses in the world equestrian sport and full disclosure of their abilities. And in this matter, the services of the Turkmen leader are invaluable. As President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov emphasizes, our ancestors have always lived in harmony with their native nature, drawing from it physical and spiritual strength, creative inspiration. This is reflected in the everyday life and holidays of the Turkmen people, their wise traditions and customs, rich folklore, wonderful works of art. As you know, recently the head of state, following the established tradition, visited the Ahal-Teke equestrian complex of the President of Turkmenistan, where he visited the Ahal-Teke horses and took a ride on Akyol.

One of the priority directions of state policy is careful preservation, expansion and widespread popularization of exemplary traditions for the whole world, a kind of cultural heritage of the Turkmen people, who have made a great contribution to the development of world culture throughout history. One of the most important tasks of our time is to transfer national values founded by our glorious ancestors to future generations. During the general lesson, President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov emphasized the history of the country, the sacred duty and tasks of the younger generation, as well as national values and their significance. Also, the head of state in his historical speech emphasized that his books “Ahal-Teke is our pride and glory”, “The swift step of a horse”, “Horse is a symbol of loyalty and happiness” highlight the values of our people, forming priceless investment into world cultural heritage. Thanks to the special attention of the head of state, the sphere of national horse breeding has risen to a new stage of development. In this regard, thanks to the systematic care of the leader of the nation, the livestock of purebred Ahal-Teke horses is growing in our country, large-scale work is being implemented to enhance international cooperation, popularize equestrian sports and national traditions of horse riding. An amazing decoration of the celebrations organized on the occasion of significant dates in the life of the country is the delightful performances of the famous group of national equestrian games “Galkynyş” of the Ahal-Teke equestrian complex of the President of Turkmenistan. Now the group of national equestrian games “Galkynyş” is well known not only in our country, but also far beyond its borders. The collective, created on the initiative of the President of Turkmenistan, has repeatedly become a laureate of prestigious awards at major international shows and festivals of circus art. Thanks to the efforts of the leader of the nation, Turkmen horses and riders become the winners of the largest shows, prestigious equestrian competitions and racing tournaments held abroad. Our horsemen performed in Italy, Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Turkey, China and other countries. Artists, sculptors, jewelers and other masters, depicting a favorite horse, perpetuate not only the image of this miracle of nature, but also the talent of the Turkmen people, because the breeding of such a perfect breed is the result of creativity, knowledge, patience and inexhaustible creative potential of many generations. As you know, in the days of celebrating the 30th anniversary of Turkmenistan's independence, an important place will be given to horse racing and other equestrian sports. This is another evidence of the harmonious combination of the glorious dates of the country's life with the Ahal-Teke horses - the national value of the people. Currently, the country's confident steps to new heights of progress are compared to the swiftness of a horse. This symbolizes the harmony of good undertakings and national traditions in our Fatherland with the peculiar features of Ahal-Teke horses. This is a clear combination of every moment in the life of a country rushing to new heights with significant events. The walk of Arkadag-President on the beautiful Akyol horse, whose swift gait symbolizes the well-being and happy life of independent, neutral Turkmenistan and beloved people, inspires the entire Turkmen people to new victories and labor exploits.
