Team Teke 2012

Hartpury Talk Nov 15th

The illustrated talk "Hoofprints over Central Asia: Adventures of an Akhal-Teke stallion" was well supported, with nearly 50 people there.

It was a fundraiser for the Equine Grass Sickness Fund as well as a promotional evening for the Akhal-Teke. As well as the EGS stall plus books, refreshments and a raffle, we had a Team Teke table with breed information, videos of AT sporthorses in action – and more calendars for sale!

The evening raised £146 for EGS and £33 for Team Teke. It was a great publicity event, and we plan to hold further events of this kind.

 

Points Competition

This generated a runaway winner in Susi Sadler with Rudi, who scored double the points of the next competitor. Susi won a £20 internet shopping voucher from our kind sponsors Wye Valley Country Store. Second was Maria Baverstock with Mualim and third Jenny Barnes with Linhay Lale.

 

Photo Competition

We had onver thirty entries, the first three places going to Rosalyn Serex. With one prize per competitor, Rosalyn won the first prize of a £15 voucher from Ross Feeds and a 12.5l tub of Happy Tummy Charcoal generously donated by Fine Fettle Feed. Rosalyn kindly donated her prizes back to Team Teke.

Second was Viki Ross, who won a £5 voucher and a year's subscription to Central Horse News. Third was Jenny Barnes, with a £5 voucher and a Visiq Pro Professional Electric Manicure/Pedicure set, and fourth Millie Richards for a set of leg wraps and bandages.

 

The best photos were used to make a calendar, which sold a total of 43 copies both among breed supporters and elsewhere – more good breed publicity!

Thank you to all our generous sponsors for their support of these events – see  the Links Page for their details.

 

There will be another photo competition to run 2013-14, with a closing date of the end of June 2014.

 

Meanwhile, there have been requests for another calendar for 2014. There isn't time to run a a photo competition first, so if you have some good photos you would like to have considered for inclusion, please email them to gill@gillsuttle.co.uk.
