CSCHAT is voluntary civil association which associates owners
and fans of the breed Akhal Teke in Czech Republic. The main aim
of CSCHAT is to contribute by its activities to increase the
quality of breeding in Czech Republic.
About the association
CSCHAT was founded by constitutive meeting 30.8.2003.
The main reason was the situation in Teke breeding in Czech
Republic at that time – in principle till 2002 the only breeding
center was the farm of Havlicek´s husbands in Chrastava. Due to
financial problems, they have to stop their activities and most
of the horses were sold through the bankruptcy proceedings to
new owner. As most of people were interested to coordinate thein
breeding activities and to register thein Tekes in mother stud
books (since 1991-2002 no Teke born in Czech Republic was
registered within the Russian studbook), there was organized
meeting in June 2003, where was also invited Mrs. T.N. Ryabova,
the chief inspector of breeding from Russia. During this meeting
Mrs. Ryabova visited Czech breeders and register their horses.
After June meeting followed several preliminary meetings,
which flew into the foundation of CCHAT.
Later CSCHAT became the member of MAAK and undersigned the
contract about cooperation with VNIIK.
In May 2008 CSCHAT became the member of ASCHK CR (Union of
horse breeding associations) – this is the biggest horse
breeding organisation in Czech Republic, which associates
different breed associations and run studbooks for several
Since 2004 representatives of CSCHAT participated in the
biggest Czech equine exhibition „Horses in Action“ which take
place at the racetrack in Pardubice. CSCHAT is presented Teke
breed and itself in own stand.
In 2008 in the cooperation with Racing Club Pardubice
CSCHAT organised first flat race for Teke horses, which took
place outside the area of Russia and Turkmenistan. In 2009 was
held the race for the second time.
The chief inspector of breeding, Mrs. Tatyana N.
Ryabova, regularly visits Czech Republic and evaluates the

registration of purebred and partbreds Teke horses in Russian
