Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Finnhorse or Finnish Horse (Finnish: suomenhevonen, literally "horse of Finland"; nickname: Suokki) is a horse breed with both riding horse and draught horse influence and characteristics. It is the only breed developed fully in Finland, and is sometimes called the Finnish Universal in English, because Finns consider the breed to fulfill all needs for horses in Finland, including agricultural and forestry work, harness racing, and riding. In 2007, the breed was declared the official national horse breed of Finland. The Finnhorse is claimed to be among the fastest and most versatile draught horse breeds in the world. However, whether the breed is actually a true draught horse is controversial. According to various sources, the Finnhorse has been categorised as a light draught or coldblood, as a heavy warmblood, and as a "universal type." However, in Finland, the breed is never categorised as a warmblood.show more
