Pure-bred Akhal-Teke, registered VNIIK (Russian Stud Book).
15.3½hh, metallic golden buckskin, by ATAMEKAN out of GULARA by Gaigysiz.
Bold, athletic and with a big jump, Xanadu combines his sire’s lightness of movement with his dam’s substance. He is producing quality foals out of a variety of mares. His sire Atamekan passed on his jumping ability to all his offspring, and we expect Xan to do the same. A potential sporthorse sire for quality mares, he would also make the perfect “improver” for the heavier mare.
Xan’s sire ATAMEKAN (http://kyzyltekes.co.uk/atamekan.html) was a Grade I racehorse in his native Turkmenistan. He carried out two ultra-long-distance rides in Central Asia and Britain, won several times SJ and jumped Open XC. His progeny, both home-bred and from outside mares, include successful SJ, Eventing, Endurance and Show horses, proving the versatility of the Akhal-Teke horse.
Xan's dam Gulara is graded Elite by VNIIK (the All-Russia National Institute of Research and Horse-Breeding, which holds the Akhal-Teke “mother” studbook). She never competed due to a head injury at two years. Her sire GAIGYSIS was the best Akhal-Teke stallion of his generation, and the most prolific sire ever of Akhal-Teke breed champions (sire and grandsire of four Russian Champions and eight World Champions).
The Akhal-Teke – agile, tough, with legendary stamina and supremely responsive to the sympathetic rider – is the world’s most versatile sporthorse, having set Olympic Dressage and USSR Showjumping Puissance records. It also offers 3,000 years of genetic stability, highly desirable for a cross-bred mare
Xanadu is the only true “golden” Akhal-Teke at stud in the UK. He carries the dilution gene with one recessive gene for chestnut, enabling him to sire both palominos and buckskins. He is producing quality foals out of a variety of mares.
