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

Pellervo left with his boots on

Pellervo lähti saappaat jalassa ( 9.5.2011)

R-stud Pellervo has died this spring. He left over 80 foals offspring and lived until 22 years of age.

He won the finnhorse show jumping championship four times in 1999-2002. At the time he was ridden by Minna Nikmo.

His best-known foal at the time must be the stallion Knuutilan Veikko, who has done excellent work both in the competition fields and as a stud. It sure looks like Pellervo has left his hoof mark permanently in the Finnish riding horse pedigrees.

I'm a Finnish horse enthusiast. This blog is my tribute for the national horse of Finland. I started in 2009. My aim is 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.
