Dagestan. Invitation to Go for a Trip, Part II: Breeders

Vladimir Petrovich Shamborant established the biggest at the time Akhal-Teke breeding studfarm in Russia in Dagestan. “What is good about Turali (not far from Makhachkala) – said Vladimir Shamborant, famous AT breeder and founder of studfarm “Dagestansky” - is that the nature here is the same as at the motherland of Akhal-Tekes in Turkmenistan, but here is also the sea. What can be better?”

The breeding stock was carefully picked up in Turkmenistan. Later on many great horses from Dagestan went to Stavropol studfarm and made an important part of its famous breeding stock. But despite that, Dagestan kept producing more and more of outstanding Akhal-Teke horses and numerous breed champions. Here are only some of the recent names:
