In the north with a finnhorse
A private riding trip and farm visit is a program suitable for everyone and a wide variety of groups. No previous riding experience is required.
During the visit you will get to know the idyllic farm and our national treasure finnhorse. The riding trip included in the program is also suitable for first-time riders. If necessary, our guides will walk alongside the rider during the trip.
During the program, your party will get to know the leisurely lifestyle of an arctic farm. You will get to know the animals on the farm and get to care for and feed them. There are finnhorses, Shetland ponies, sheep and chickens in the farm. The children are especially delighted by the activities of the Shetland pony buddies Venni and Ulla and the sheep.
The forest trip to the northeastern landscape is carried out in a way that suits the party. You can ride safe and peaceful Finnish horses on the farm’s private forest roads. A forest trip in the nature of Kuusamo together with a Finnish horse is an experience in all seasons.
Riders get up in the saddle from an unobstructed and horse-friendly ramp. The program is suitable for all ages.
The program includes a hot drink and gingerbread. You can book tasty meals for the trip. If you wish, you can enjoy your own lunch at the courtyard fireplace after the program.
