About Day of the Turkmen Horse
On April 19th, Turkmenistan recognises the importance of the horse in the history of the country.
The Akhal Teke horse is believed to be one of the oldest surviving and purest of horse breeds. The Akal Teke is a descendant of the ancient Turkmene horse that originated from Asia and was used by nomadic tribes as a war horse.
On this day, Students read poems dedicated to the Akhal-Teke horses.
