Personally I love to jump, so a good leg and hoof conformation is a must. More and more I see faults in even reputable breeding farms even with the knowledge we have today of better breeding practices.
For example the stallion Akbar 672, born in 1957
Can you imagine if 5 generations later you would have Mister Akbar 10 times in your pedigree...
Looking at the early Akhal-Teke horses, horsemanship was poor, nutrition and a farrier at it's worst.
So today, WE must educate ourselves and do a better job at preserving this beloved breed!
