This was the first time Leonida attended the competition. One could say she cleaned the prize table. She was the fastest in the trot test, the best mare to attend and the best first-timer. Second place went to mare Vikspertta, who was the youngest horse to attend – only five years old! Two-time work horse champion, mare Vilpotar placed third. The first prize was 1 500 euro.

– It’s great to see that hard work pays off. Leonida is an honest, fine family horse, told Matti Pakarinen, whose wife Tarja and daughters Veera and Viivi also like to take part to the daily stable routines back home.

Pakarinen has had Leonida since last October.

– I appreciate the work that Veikko Herranen (the previous owner) has done with her. Leonida felt good, but I didn’t expect us to win, since there were so many good horses against us.

 Again next year?

– Maybe not. She might be in foal next year. But if she’s not, we’ll come to compete again.

Leonida lost a shoe during the competition, but managed to pull through all the tests. There were about 500 people watching the competition. This was the 30th anniversary for the work horse championships, which has been organised annually since 1984.

The work horse championship is an annual competition for studbook inspected mares and stallions. There are three tests: 1000 m trot, 500 m walk with 500 kg carriage, and finally the pulling test, where the horses pull a sleigh in sand. The start weight is about 500 kg, the horse pulls 20 m at a time. More weight is added to the sleigh during the breaks. This continues until the horse stops or the vet calls it off (the horses are naturally under strict surveillance throughout the tests). The horses receive points for each test and the horse with most points wins the title of the champion.

Matti had a camera with him through the competition. Click here to watch it on Facebook.

Not just nostalgia

From Metsäsavotan paras työmies on jämäkkäjalkainen työhevonen (Yle.fi 30.1.2014)

Work horses are coming back in fashion. The Finnish work horse is endangered, riding and harness racing are still more popular sports with horses, but luckily there are more and more people who also take interest in this tradition and want to learn more.

Finnish work horses were  left unemployed and they practically disappeared after the mechanization of the Finnish society. Luckily now people seem to have found their way back to working with horses. The Finnish Work Horse Association organizes courses that introduce people to horses and traditional ways of working.

– People are interested in making their own firewood or other similar smaller tasks with horses as a hobby, says horseman Matti Pakarinen.

Pakarinen himself owns seven finnhorses. His stable is located in Rautalampi. He says that this hobby is not as popular as in our neighboring countries Sweden or Norway, but it’s growing. Working is good exercise for both the horse and his owner, and saves nature as well -a horse doesn’t leave any tracks in the forest.

There are only a few professional horse loggers left, and Matti admits that it’s a tough job to do for a living. Horses still have their place though, especially at environmentally sensitive areas, like national parks and cemeteries. Modern hydraulic equipment with four-wheel drive makes the work much easier, yet still demands a firm horse.

The horse is more than just a worker -it’s also a man’s best friend.

Finnish Work Horse championships 2013

Vilpotar is the Finnish work horse champion 2013

From Vilpotar palasi hallitsijaksi suomenhevosten työmestaruuskilpailussa (Suomenhevosliitto.fi)

This year the work horse championship competition took place at Seinäjoki in western Finland. It is open only for studbook inspected finnhorse stallions and mares (its purpose is basically the same as the finnhorse trotting championships -to serve quality horse breeding). This year’s competition was exceptional for having five first time competitors and five champions from previous years participating.

The horses are given points for their 500 m walk and 1000 m trot times, but the most significant (and the most exciting!) part is the pulling, where the horses pull a sleigh on sand starting with 500-600 kg weight. More weight is added into the sleigh after every two stairs (stair=10 m). This year the best puller Pihan Alma pulled a tremendous 28 stairs, at the final stairs the sleigh weighed about 1 200 kg. It brought her to second place in the overall

Vilpotar & Markku Mässeli

competition after Vilpotar, who renewed her title from 2011 by receiving the highest possible score in walk and trot and finishing it with pulling 23,3 stairs.

Jarmo Korkeaniemi bought Suikun Lukko as a yearling. Suikun Lukko’s very well-built legs and hooves caught his eye at first. The colt was also very co-operative and kind. The best thing in this colt was that there were no downsides, Jarmo smiles. The horse has always been exceptionally humble towards human.

Suikun Lukko made an impressive career as a trotter: he placed third in Erilo-race as a five-year-old, placed second in finnhorse monté championship race in 2005 ridden by Tiia Tirkkonen and made a new Finnish record in monté at the age of 14, ridden by Susanne Klemola.

In the year 2012 he became the work horse champion. His trot time was 1.33 and walk 5.50. He pulled 19,2 stairs. Working has been a part of his training since the beginning, Jarmo and Suikun Lukko started with bringing firewood home when he was three years old. After his trotter career he has had a job as carriage horse in weddings and other special occasions, and Jarmo says Suikun Lukko is also his “personal therapy horse”, making every grey thoughts disappear once he harnesses his beloved horse.

Suikun Lukko has also tried a few other disciplines: he has attended in horse swimming competitions held annually at Kurikka. He hasn’t won anything from those competitions, being more interested in enjoying the nice, cool water than swimming fast. Another interesting fact is that he has also been shown at endurance riding competitions.

Work horses are back in fashion

From Työhevoskurssit täpötäynnä (yle.fi 15.1.2013 by Siru Päivinen, shortened translation)

Poika Tuisku, photo from the original article (Yle)

This is a true Finnish heritage sight: crisp winter weather, temperature just below zero, the sun is shining and a handsome, flaxen-mained horse harnessed in front of a traditional sleigh is waiting for passengers. More and more people wish to live in this view.

Työhevosharrastajat is a Finnish work horse club that operates under Suomenratsut ry.  They arrange courses in traditional harnessing, agriculture work and logging. The courses have showed to be extremely popular, especially among young urban women.

One of these courses took place in Tuulikummun Tila, Kiihtelyysvaara, in North Karelia. It was a surprise for the stable owner Heidi Meuranen that so many people came a long way to learn about work horses -most of them from Southern Finland, several hundred kilometers away!

– This was the first course we arranged. We thought we could offer the local horse people to get to know working with finnhorses, but it was filled in moments with southern participants. That was a surprise.

Finnhorse reflects the Finnish heritage

Horses have made their way back to Finnish countryside. Horse industry has been growing for the past years, and finnhorse as a part of it. The biggest amount of horses ever was in 1950, when there were altogether 410 000 horses in Finland. The mechanization in agriculture put many horses out of work after that. The lowest number of horses was in the early 1980s, when there were only about 31 000 horses left. As the standard of living grew, horses became more and more popular as a hobby. Finnhorses got accompanied by warmbloods, ponies, Icelandic horses, Norwegian fjords and other foreign breeds, and their work field was more and more often on the race track and as riding horses rather than work horses.

At the moment there are altogether about 76 000 horses in Finland, and about 16 000 stables. Horses have been the only growing form of agriculture industry in the 21st century.

Knowledge and learning

During the few “darker decades” the traditional horsemanship was slowly disappearing. Nowadays the native Finnish horse and traditional horsemanship and working is making its way back to fashion. People are looking for teachers -old horsemen.

– My work horse hobby started with horses that came to the farm with the wife. So we built a stable for the horses. I was more interested in this traditional horsemanship rather than riding, being interested in old Finnish culture overall. Since we had the horses and the abilities, we decided to organize a course for the interested, told Anssi Okkonen, one of the course leaders.

Okkonen believes that this rising interest to work horses is a part of need to calm down, get back to nature. Urban people come to these courses for experiences and get out of their busy city lifes for a change. Some people even want to stay permanently, so they find a house at the countryside and most of the time these dreams include a small stable -and a finnhorse.

Poika Tuisku

Meuranen family looked for a flaxen-mained finnhorse in particular, and found one six years ago. Poika Tuisku raised hopes for a trotter career at first, but his speed was not enough for the track. Instead he has proven himself a really good horse for riding and working.

– This horse is my precious, I could even say the horse of my life. Tuisku is a bit stubborn sometimes, but I happily allow that for a good horse. He’s also very honest and hard-working, tells Heidi Meuranen about the gelding which she owns with her husband Jouni Meuranen.

Heidi’s way to work horses was a common one -through saddle. At the moment a sleigh is as familiar to her as the saddle, and she tells that driving and working are good change for riding.

Atmosphere and nostalgia

Along with Meuranen couple, older horsemen Eino Leikas and Veikko Ripatti were called to offer the course participants knowledge about the traditional working with horses along with younger instructor Anssi Okkonen. The course offered learning in practice; by learning to harness real horses, driving with work sleighs, bringing wood from the forest and so on.

– Practice makes perfect, you can’t learn these things properly in theory, says Heidi. Getting to know different ways to work with horses opens one’s mind to new ideas as well, and a finnhorse is a true multipurpose horse.
