About Finnish Universal Horses
Finnish Universal horses, also known as Finnhorses, are consider
the breed capable of fulfilling all of Finlands horse needs, including
agricultural and forestry work, harness racing, and riding. They are found in
Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark.The Finn people are rather proud of finnish
Universal horses as they have been given the reputation as being some of the
fastest in history.
During the Bronze Age there were definitely horses roaming
around, but it has been rumored this was one of those styles. The local army
utilized the breed over and over again on various tasks and missions. Once the
studbook was created in 1907, they were outlawed to perform anymore out
crossing. That studbook went on to be divided into a few sections, one for
riding, one for trotting, one for drafting, and one for ponies.
Finnish Universal horses are considered to be very kind,
willing, eager, and docile creatures. They are easy to care for, no major
health issues reported, and they can reside in virtually temperature climate.
