Towards new adventures!





Finnish cold-blood, aka Finnhorse, is the only Finnish horse breed. The Finnhorse is a very important part of the Finnish history. Nowadays Finnhorses are often used as a trotting horses because of their incredible speed. They are used in all riding disciplines, such as show jumping, dressage, eventing, trail riding, combined driving and vaulting. With its easy-to-handle temperament and strength, the Finnhorse is an excellent all-round horse.

The Finnhorses' movements must be elastic and good. Finnhorses are hardy, healthy, calm and docile and usually live quite a long time. In appearance, the Finnhorses vary quite a lot depending on the type of horse they are. The trotting type is the lightest, the working type the roughest and the pony type the smallest. The Finnhorse has many different basic colors and a fairly wide range of shades of these colors.


Appaloosa hobby horse



Great stamina

When riding an Appaloosa over open landscapes, you can feel the horse's origins. With the wind in your hair and the warm smell of mud in your nostrils, you may feel a sense of belonging to those who first bred the breed, the Nez Perce tribe in North America. The Nez Perce tribe knew how to handle horses and therefore the Appaloosas has great strength and stamina and will be gentle and respectful when they are handled kindly. Nowadays Appaloosa is a very popular riding horse and besides that you have a horse that can be used as a work horse, or why not as a circus horse?

You gently brush the horse and explores its unique patterns. The pattern can vary a lot and of course you think that your horse's pattern is the most beautiful of all. You gently stroke the mule, pat it one more time, as a thanks to the horse for being your own.
