Every akhal teke owner in the world should read this!  Just replace the word Arabian with Teke, and it will be perfect.   I've always believed that our breed should have a greater percentage of evaluation during grading that is geared more towards accomplishments instead of beauty contests - especially when it comes to breeding.

My own horses do both show and endurance.  There is no harm in having multiple careers with your horses, in fact, it's somewhat of a "fail safe" plan.  If one path doesn't work out, you can always go with the other path.  Patti is a great ambassador for this kind of multi-tasking.  If the rider keeps an open mind, they can be both proficient and successful doing different careers with their horses.
