Joanna and Howie Kale

November 18, 2011, USA~At the 2011 WAHO conference in Doha, Qatar, Howard and Joanna Kale proudly announced their involvement in the rebuilding and rejuvenation of TERSK Stud.

More than 30 years after his first trip to Russia, Howard Kale renews his relationship with TERSK Stud by signing on as an independent breeding advisor. Howie’s first visit to TERSK Stud in 1975 opened the door to the “Russian Revolution” during which the Russian horses took the world by storm. During the political upheaval in the 1990’s and early 2000’s, TERSK Stud suffered great losses in both horseflesh and personnel. Now privately owned and operated, TERSK Stud is committed to regaining its World Class status.  Howie has agreed to advise and aid them in this quest to the best of his considerable ability.

Howie’s daughter, Joanna, has also signed on as the American representative and Marketing Advisor for TERSK Stud. “I grew up hearing stories about the magnificent Russian horses. Where other little girls dreamed of castles and knights, I dreamed of rolling Russian hills and chestnut stallions with coats of liquid fire. It is truly an honor to be a part of the TERSK Stud team,” she says.

Howie confirms, “We have a lot of work to do, but I like the people involved, and believe that together we can restore Tersk Stud to her former glory.” Both Kales agree that it is going to take time and effort, but have the upmost faith in the people and the horses of Tersk Stud.
