Shearer has been breeding Akhal-Tekes since 1986. Jas
was introduced to the breed by the late Eberhard Sprandel.
The German native had migrated to Colorado specifically because
the area was conducive to Akhal-Teke breeding. Sprandel
passed his passion for this ancient breed on to Jas.
Since then, Jas has been committed to promoting the Akhal-Teke

Valley Ranch Akhal-Tekes have proven their worth in competitions

competing successfully in dressage
events and endurance rides, Jas was among the finishers in
the Pony Express reenactment ride XP2001 -- which retraced
the actual route from St. Joseph, Missouri to Virginia City,
Nevada. Riding her Akhal-Tekes Astrachan and Dancer,
Jas demonstrated the Akhal-Tekes' phenomenal ability to persevere
