Only a few weeks to go!

From Kuninkuusravirankingin pistetilanne 4.7. julkaistu (kuninkuusravit.fi)

It’s that time of the year again…! Yes, Kuninkuusravi time!

Without a doubt the biggest annual trotting event in Finland and one of the biggest in Europe, a unique concept that has a long tradition starting from the 1920s… and it’s only a few weeks left!

I am, of course, talking about the finnhorse trotting championships (coronation trot?) weekend, that takes place in Kuopio in 27th-28th July this year.

One of the most thrilling parts of the waiting is to follow the ranking. Which horses will make it to the queen and king races? Only the twelve best horses can make it!

Finnish Work Horse championships 2013

Vilpotar is the Finnish work horse champion 2013

From Vilpotar palasi hallitsijaksi suomenhevosten työmestaruuskilpailussa (Suomenhevosliitto.fi)

This year the work horse championship competition took place at Seinäjoki in western Finland. It is open only for studbook inspected finnhorse stallions and mares (its purpose is basically the same as the finnhorse trotting championships -to serve quality horse breeding). This year’s competition was exceptional for having five first time competitors and five champions from previous years participating.

The horses are given points for their 500 m walk and 1000 m trot times, but the most significant (and the most exciting!) part is the pulling, where the horses pull a sleigh on sand starting with 500-600 kg weight. More weight is added into the sleigh after every two stairs (stair=10 m). This year the best puller Pihan Alma pulled a tremendous 28 stairs, at the final stairs the sleigh weighed about 1 200 kg. It brought her to second place in the overall

Vilpotar & Markku Mässeli

competition after Vilpotar, who renewed her title from 2011 by receiving the highest possible score in walk and trot and finishing it with pulling 23,3 stairs.

See a big photo gallery on Finnhorse Association’s homepage!

Little filly’s pedigree

Little filly!Our little filly was born on 19th of June 2013, just after midnight (00.01). She is the first foal for her dam and the last one for her sire, which makes her quite exceptional, and also the special first one for me as a breeder! It’ll be so exciting to see her grow up.

And guess what, she’s already on Sukuposti, too!

It’s a girl!

Elysetar gave birth to a filly at midnight, 19th of June 2013. Photo by Jenni Suhonen

Little filly was born 19th of June 2013 at 00.01. She is a chestnut with beautiful head marking, like a shooting star! More pictures to come, but feel free to take a look at our foaling camera in Elyse’s box by clicking here. We’ll leave the camera on to give you an opportunity to check out how the girls are doing. :)

New international coldblood horse race in Romme

From Ruotsiin uusi kutsukisa kylmäverisille (Hevosurheilu.fi) and Suomalaiset kylmäveriravurit ovat superhevosia (Sveriges radio)

kymigp4

 “Our aim is to have a race similar to Åby Stora Pris, but for coldblood trotters”, tells Kaj Närhinen, the manager of Romme and Rättvik race tracks.

“We invite eight coldblood trotters from Sweden, Norway and Finland. The race takes place on the last Friday of July (26th). The competition consists of two races, first in 2140 m and then in 1640 m. If one horse wins both races, it wins the overall competition as well. If a different horse wins these races, we will have a third race in 1140 m distance.”

The overall winner has a chance to gather prizes worth 300 000 kr. “The prizes are the same level as in Elitkampen, so we hope to get the best horses to compete. Unfortunately the timing rules out the best finnhorse stallions and mares because the finnhorse trotting championships takes place in the same weekend (July 27th-28th), but on the other hand this is a great opportunity for geldings like Pihlajan Aaroni!”

“We hope that coldblood racing enthusiasts welcome this competition to their calendar. The collision with finnhorse trotting championships is unfortunate, but it’s because the racing calendar was already made when I started here in January and the last Friday of July is a traditional racing day in Romme” says Närhinen.
