January 14-17, 2002. The conference of AATK =Russian Association of Akhal-Teke breeders was held in VNIIK (All Russian Research Institute of Horse Breeding, Ryazan). The conference had two major questions in program: updated charter of Association and the future of AI. After hot discussions, the conference made the most important decisions and delegated a group of respected members to write down the detailed rules for limited usage of AI in purebred Akhal-Teke breeding. The work should be finished in one year. Untill this document is ready, AATK conference decided to stop using AI in any form, except when the stallion and mare are at the same location. It seems that Akhal-Teke breed will take "a golden middle" between Arab breed (AI is allowed) and English TB (AI is prohibited).
