There is a really nice video that has been recently uploaded on Youtube of the great Akhal Teke gelding Kandar. He was such a beauty and phenomenal athlete! I believe that the nice collage above was created by Amrita Ibold - (Jenny, please correct me if I'm wrong on that....) so the photo credit goes to her. =:)

Another video of interest is of the famous Turkmen trickriders:

And the ones below are of Absent, the big black Akhal Teke stallion that was a five time Olympic medalist during the 1960's and onward (2 gold, 2 silver, and 1 bronze). He competed against warmbloods and won many times, and was named "Horse of the Century" by the media. He was a bit heavier in type than Kandar and the tekes in the other videos, but also a very beautiful and talented horse.
