Forest riding for experienced riders

Forest riding trip in the landscape of Kuusamo with reliable Finnish horses in all gaits is an experience.

For this hike, you need previous riding experience to control the horse in all gaits. The hike progresses according to the level of the group.

Ruska Laukka's forest trips are ridden on private forest trails, paths and fields. The landscape of Kuusamo offers enchanting views in all seasons, and walking through the varied terrain through the forests with our national treasure finnhorse is a touching experience for all the senses. Reliable horse walking on forest trails and in winter in thick snow, nature in the northern light and friendly guidance create a memorable experience.

Riders get up to the saddle unhindered from the ramp on the riding arena. We will review safety issues before going off-road. During the trip you can get to know our farm. We can also get to know other animals on the farm.

The whole program is 1 h depending on the size of the group.
