Anything is easy with Hiluten Virite

b. 20.4 2002
s. Hilute
d. Virimo
Breeder Elina Hokkanen, Tuusula

Hiluten Virite is owned by Jarkko Hokkanen and his daughter Elina. Both her sire and dam were also Hokkanen family’s horses. Virite is a true multipurpose horse, since she has had time to try harness racing, draft work and has also been ridden. Being a pony-sized finnhorse makes her good for any finnhorse breeding section. Virite has performed in various occasions, for example in weddings, and offered young people their first touch to horses in riding. The smaller the rider, the more careful is the horse, says Jarkko. Being born and raised next to a fireworks factory, Virite felt like home when she starred in a short tv-series Tauno Tukevan Sota (Tauno Tukeva’s war), the closest bang being shot only 40cm behind the horse.

Virite has had one foal, sired by El Vihuri, which is also Jarkko’s own horse. Hiluten Virite has been inspected to P- (pony-sized) studbook with 1st prize and 39 points and Ta-(work horse with driveability test) studbook with 2nd prize and 40 points. Jarkko recalls the first inspection going just as planned, when the judge handed Virite’s reins back to Jarkko and described the horse with one word -Perfect.

Pony-sized finnhorse show results 2012

From Suomenpienhevonen.fi/uutiset (2012)

Tintin Sahrami was inspected for P-studbook in October 2012

As the owner takes their foal (1-3 years of age) to a foal show, they can choose which breeding section the foal will have its evaluation (different breeding sections have somewhat different goals). At the age of four or older mares and stallions may be shown for studbook.

The pony-sized finnhorse association (Suomenpienhevosyhdistys) updates their website actively, and posts all the foals that have received a P-section evaluation as well as new studbook horses. I collected them all in one post for you to take a look at. Studying show results can provide a good overall sight on a horse breed, or in this case a breeding section.

Stallion inspection at Harju 17th October

Results at Hippos.fi
The last annual inspection for finnhorse and warmblood trotter stallions was held last week. Five new studs made it through the test and got their official licenses for breeding.

All horses get points from their body structure and character, trotter horses (J) show their gaits and driveability on the track in a driveability test and riding horses (R) ridden in dressage, show jumping and rideability with a rider other than his own. Pony-sized finnhorses (P) have a choise between rideability and driveability test and work horses redeem themselves either by driveability (Ta) or heavyweight pulling test (T). Driveability tests are, of course, a bit different for different breeding sections, but they basically test this horses’s ability to work in a given assignment of trotting, carriage driving or draft. This year’s Harju inspection showed all four breeding sections with two inspected trotter stallions, one riding horse, one work horse and one pony-sized horse.

Three finnhorses at Baltic Cup finals in Vilnius

Always so nice to receive good news from international show grounds!

Finnhorses, especially pony-sized, have really shown their suitability for carriage driving. Last weekend the Baltic Cup finals were driven in Vilnius, Lithuania. Hessin Vihtori and Vuohimäen Havu placed first and second in the Baltic Pony Cup final, driven by Hannu and Leena Kalalahti. Hessin Muusa and Heidi Sinda performed well in horse class and got the final Cup silver medal for Finland. Great job!

Get to know the finnhorse

If you haven’t seen this publication yet, I’d suggest you to read it. This brochure was made in 2007 and offers quite good basic information about finnhorses both in history and today. Their versatility is well shown, lively graphics as well as multiple photos make learning fun.

Even if you are familiar with the breed already, have a look. As much as I have read about Finnish horses in the past, I still learned new things from this brochure. There are versions in Finnish, English, Swedish and German. Enjoy!
