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

Mounted archery with a finnhorse

1 Comment

Marko, chairman of the Finnish Mounted Archery Association sent me these photos from a training session with his finnhorse gelding Luna Lukas (Luke). Photos by Kari Rintalahti (click to enlarge).

What a sport and what a horse! Thanks to Marko for sharing these. :)

Mounted archery is a relatively new sport in Finland, but the association has done a lot of work promoting it, and people (including myself) seem to take more and more interest in it. There are a few others practicing mounted archery with a finnhorse, too. Take a look at these videos I found on Youtube a while ago. It’s always nice to see these multipurpose horses showing what they can do! :)
