Ypäjä Stud 75th Anniversary Seminar in English

Leave a comment

From Suomenhevonen 2012 ( web magazine)

Finnhorse Union  (Suomenhevosliitto) published its annual Suomenhevonen magazine, including stories of finnhorses, their owners, trainers, future stars, statistics, breeding… lots of articles! The magazine is mostly in Finnish, but if you go to the last pages, you will find one article in English too on pages 52-53.

Another very interesting international event seems to take place on Finnhorse riding championships weekend too, since the Ypäjä Stud is celebrating its 75th anniversary -and the seminar is held in English! This is an excellent opportunity to get to know the finnhorse without having to learn Finnish language first, see a huge variety of Riding section finnhorses of all ages, stroll around the traditional Ypäjä Stud grounds and visit the Equestrian Museum of Finland, all in one weekend, guided, and at one place!
