Riding experience

The Kuusamo landscape with a reliable Finnish horse is an experience in every season. Ride in the woods and on the slopes on the farm's private paths and forest trails. In winter you can experience horseback riding in the snow and in summer you can experience the light of the north and the richness of nature. Hiking is an experience for all the senses in the splendor of fall colors. Come and experience the sensitivity of Arctic spring together with a Finnish horse. The connection to the horse and nature is an unforgettable experience.

For this forest hike you need some riding experience. The two-hour horseback riding experience is suitable for riders with basic skills. If you want to book a 2-hour hike for first-timers, book the program by email or phone. We will arrange a suitable forest trip for your group.

On a field trip we ride on our private routes. The length of the whole program is 2 hours.

During the program, you will get to know Ruska Laukka's farm and animals. Riders get up in the saddle on the riding arena from an accessible and horse-friendly ramp.
