It's all about the only native Finnish horse breed!

Magic is in the air!

This is a humorous video and song about Teivo’s finnhorse trotting championships, starring a horse driver Erkki-Pekka Mäkinen.

I couldn’t help but laugh when I saw this – it’s great!

This translation is sort of loose -it’s not so easy to translate Finnish rap! :D

I still try to find some words so also the non-Finnish-speakers could get into the mood. The fever is rising! Enjoy!

(chorus: teivossa ravataan = trotting in Teivo)

E-P from Tampere, hello!

Now we’re not at Särkkä, nor Pyynikki, nor Hakametsä.

Right now we’re at Teivo!

Let’s tap the rhythyms to the sky! Let’s see what’s in there!

This is not hockey, this is not basketball.

This is not skiing, nor football.

This is the sound of true horse powers,

The trotting championships magic!

The true Finnish stallions and mares

This great horse of blue and white

This is Teivo’s trotting championships magic!

(teivossa ravataan)

Should I take the next set from a different tone? Like B. Helmiina? Or one Oktaavia higher?

People come to Teivo from all over Finland

There’s no way one can miss it

This is Teivo’s trotting championships magic!

That’s not even all of it, Eput* are coming to play in the evening fest!

First time in trotting history

This is whole of Finlands trotting magic

That specific Teivo’s trotting championships magic!

(teivossa ravataan)

Trotting magic!

* (Eppu Normaali is one of the most popular Finnish pop bands)
