Ypäjä Equine College organised a quadrille show on finnhorses (and one warmblood horse) for the HIHS event at Helsinki. This video was filmed by Sirkku Korkiamäki.

The history of the college and equine research in Ypäjä dates back to 1930s. Ypäjä was the base of military riding school and the state horse breeding programme. The Finnish Riding College was founded in 1972. Nowadays the traditions are continued by the Equine College of Ypäjä and MTT Agrifood Research Finland’s equine research unit.
