The program of the free event aimed at the whole family includes fast-paced harness race for Finnish horses as well as various performances
The program of the free event aimed at the whole family includes fast-paced harness race for Finnish horses as well as various performances that highlight the versatility of the Finnish horse and the many, paramount roles of the Finnish horse in the history of Finland: the Finnish horse is presented as a war hero, a western horse, a work horse, a harness and riding horse, a hobby friend and a therapy horse.
Several well-known Finnish horses will come to Vermo Areena to present the versatility of this Finnish treasure, and there will be an interesting program for the whole family.
At the event, the public can, among other things, learn about horse-assisted therapy activities, see how a horse is harnessed, how a Finnish horse bends into a western horse and how logs can be pulled with the help of a horse - in addition, the public can watch, pet and congratulate the adorable heroes of the day from a close distance.
The open doors of the Vermo Harness School operating at Vermo Areena give visitors a glimpse into the everyday life of the harness school, and the youngest of the family can get to know the sweet ponies of the harness school either from on the back of the ponies or in a cart. Adults, on the other hand, can get on the back of a Finnish horse in order to try out what riding feels like or get on a tandem harness cart with an experienced instructor and enjoy the speed .
There is a wide range of different activities for the youngest of the family for the whole day: the hobby horse arena and bouncy castles are in use, there are big work machines in the area. You can unleash your creativity by drawing street art works on the asphalt - and when you're hungry, Street Bar Voltti, Tallitupa and Makupaula serve delicacies for every taste.
