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!
