Finnhorse





Finnhorse at Fallkulla Farm 5.4.2015.

The Finnhorse or Finnish Horse
(Finnish: Suomenhevonen = horse of Finland,
Swedish: finskt kallblod = Finnish cold-blood)
is a horse breed with both riding horse and draught
horse characteristics, and is the only breed developed
fully in Finland. In English it is sometimes called the
Finnish Universal, as it is considered capable of
fulfilling all of Finland's horse needs, including
agricultural and forestry work, harness racing
and riding. In 2007, the breed was declared the
official national horse breed of Finland.
