A horse is the projection of peoples’ dreams about themselves-strong, powerful, beautiful-and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.
– Pam Brown
Finnish people are often described silent, but loyal, honest, humble, good workers, fun and friendly personas once you get to know them…
… and that’s also exactly how Finnish people refer to their own horse breed, the Finn horse (also referred as Finnhorse, Finnish universal, in Finnish “suomenhevonen”).
This blog is written by a Finnish horse enthusiast. I’m aiming 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. This blog is my tribute for the national horse of Finland.
