A horse is the projection of peoples’ dreams about themselves-strong, powerful, beautiful-and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.
- Pam Brown
How Finnish people are seen by others: silent, but loyal, honest, humble, good workers, fun and friendly personas once you get to know them, and they have that northern, arctic, Scandinavian strength and calmness in their presence. And that’s exactly how Finnish people also refer to their own horse breed, the finnhorse (also referred as Finn horse, Finnish horse, Finnish universal, in Finnish suomenhevonen).
National Treasure is a blog written by a Finnish media student and finnhorse enthusiast, aiming to provide information about this multipurpose horse breed in English, in all its variety -as a historical and cultural figure, modern sport horse, friend and a companion. This blog is my tribute for the national horse of Finland.
