Eating together in Ruska Laukka in Ruka-Kuusamo

Memorable pony trip

The highlight of the holiday for the youngest members of the family is a memorable visit to a horse farm in Kuusamo. During the private program, you will get to know the ponies, take care of the ponies and get to know the life of the horse farm. In winter we can go pony sleigh ride and in summer you can try pony riding.

The pony program is suitable for children of all ages and also for people with reduced mobility. 

The children’s program begins with grooming the horses, equipping the horses, or harnessing the pony in front of the sleigh. The sled is suitable for several children. Relaxing with ponies and sleigh rides in stunning scenery is a unique nature experience for the child.

The excursion can be carried out according to your wishes either by pony sleigh ride with the youngest members of the family or by riding horses. Adults can join the trip. The excursion takes you on the farm’s private routes in the woods. Children get to know the animals on the farm and get to feed horses, ponies, chickens and sheep with us. In addition to horses, the farm has sheep, chickens, dogs and cats. Ponies Venni and Ulla are also involved in the activities.
