hearts of Russian breeders. Mr. Hans Miller imported the very first
Akhal-Teke horse from Russia to Germany, he was a founder of German
Association of Akhal-Teke breeders and friends (ACHAL TEKKINER ZUCHTER
UND FREUDE). During 20 years his riding school was a warm home for regular

The great person is not with us anymore, but there are his beautiful
horses, his friends, and we hope that his work will be continued by
his followers. Memory of Hans Miller will always live in our hearts.
