Cascade Gold Akhal-Tekes

My name is Cathy Leddy and I`ve been involved with Akhal-Teke horses for 16 years. I bought my first Teke mare in 1986, sight unseen, from Eberhard Sprandel, formerly of Wellington, Colorado. I`ve never regretted this action and in the years since, have added to my herd, bought a stallion, started breeding, started The Akhal-Teke Quarterly newsletter, held the first North American Akhal-Teke Conference at my farm in Snohomish, Washington, shown some of my horses, and been involved in the Akhal-Teke Association of America as the Secretary.

I guess you could say that it all started with an ad….

Before 1986, I had been the typical horse-crazy kid. I took care of my neighbor`s ponies (and there are stories there!) and did all the odd jobs available to a kid to make money to buy a horse. When I was 14, I had the 500 dollars my parents said was the ‘magic amount`. So, I went out and bought a green-broke Appaloosa and a book.

I sold my trusty Appy when I went to college and didn`t do much with horses until 1986, when my husband to be and I were moving from Michigan to Washington State. I happened to see an ad in Equus magazine for an Akhal-Teke stallion. I`d never seen one before, just seen photos in the breed books, and so decided, what the heck, it`s kind of on the way. I stopped for the afternoon and changed my life.

That afternoon I spent with Eberhard and his horses made such an impression on me, that later that year I bought a weanling filly, sight unseen. I asked Eberhard to `Pick me out a good one`. Early the next year, Molnija arrived. Sadly, Eberhard died that fall of 1987 leaving his farm in disarray. His brother took over and installed a series of on-site managers. In 1990, Eberhard`s brother decided to sell the entire herd at auction, as he couldn`t run his business and does justice to the horses in Colorado. At the Sprandel auction in 1990, I bought my second Teke, Mirija. I showed both mares at some little dressage schooling shows in the area the next few years and started my family. In 1993, I went to California and bought three Tekes, Astrachan, Mazan and Anastasia, from Mark Dees. In 1995, I started The Akhal-Teke Quarterly and in 1996 had the first North American Akhal-Teke Conference at my farm in Snohomish, Washington. Along the way, I was meeting other Teke fanatics, learning incredible amounts about the horses and generally having a great time. Now, in 2002, I`m on the 6th year of The Quarterly (took a year off in 2000), and we`re having the 7th Annual North American Akhal-Teke Conference in Kansas City, MO on September 27-29.

Nationwide, we`ve gone from 2-4 breeders (depending on your criteria) to around 25 or 30. There are now about 250 (give or take) Tekes in North America, with many more half-breds. People are competing them in eventing, endurance, dressage, show jumping, and western events. Horses are being imported from Europe and Russia. Our Association, The Akhal-Teke Association of America, is growing slowly, but surely. And every year, I see more and more people being bitten by the same bug that got me in a field in 1986 in Wellington, Colorado. To me, the Akhal-Teke isn`t just a horse; it`s a way of life.
