President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov visited equestrian center, naming a newborn foal Ruhubelent

     On 8th of January, 2017 President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, in existing good tradition, has visited an equestrian complex in the first days of this year. At the time of walking Akhal-Teke horses on the site of the complex, the head of state has received glad tidings – a foal was born. 

    Of course, the birth of foals is always a great joy for horse-breeders, and it happens regularly. But the current event is symbolic in that it occurred in the first days of the New Year, which in Turkmenistan has been proclaimed to be the Year of health and inspiration. Therefore, it was decided to name the foal Ruhubelent (Inspiration).

    The pedigree of Ruhubelent goes back to the famous line of Perrin. The ancestors of this newborn stallion were noble horses. One of them - Akhal-Teke horse Polatly, is depicted in a monument on the highway leading to the International Equestrian Sports Complex. At the time, unparalleled in beauty and playfulness, dun Polatly has won numerous titles and prizes, performing in different countries and competing with outstanding horses, setting a record that remained inaccessible to horses of the planet for about three decades.
