Machete is a 5yr purebred registered Akhal-Teke gelding that sticks 15.1h barefoot. If you’ve never heard of this breed before, it’s because they are super rare! Tekes are one of the oldest existing horse breeds in the world, known for their endurance, intelligence, metallic sheen, and exceptionally smooth trot that we jokingly refer to as the Teke glide (no, they are not gaited). They are gentle, sensitive, quick to learn, and bond strongly with their owner. They excel in dressage, endurance, eventing, fox hunting, and showjumping.
Machete is a curious, playful horse that loves to work and spend time with his person. He is green broke WTC under saddle. He has been trail riding at various locations in Kentucky and Florida and was also in training for driving single and double. He is well-started for a 5-yr horse and has not been pushed or overworked. Under saddle he is focusing on canter leads, working from behind, responding to seat and leg, remaining straight, and staying soft in the contact. He will soon be introduced to the hunt field.
Machete is in full training in Brooksville, Florida. He is barefoot and up-to-date. No vices, maintenance, etc. Please contact Rachel at 813-335-1950.
