We had an amazing experience with the Finnish horses. My son, my husband and I are beginner riders but thanks to the explanations and a practical demonstration we enjoyed our trail in the forest. The nice owner chose for us the most suitable horses according to their and our characteristics.
She showed us some beutiful pictures of the summer safaris and offered us a good tea. Really recommended!

Amazing scenery and experience. Horses are really happy and aren’t stressed at all. This makes the experience even better. I recommend 100% The owner makes sure you feel wellcomed and loves animals you can tell. Would repeat without doubt. You can tell the owner wants to take care of the horses and make sure they feel comfortable at all times.

Beautiful nature, nice horses and Maria is a lovely guide. It was a great experience and for me (as a horse addict :) ) it really was the highlight during our trip in Lapland. The horses are very well looked after and are in GREAT condition.

We spent a week over New Year in Ivalo, and we did a lot of activities throughout our stay, but our time with Maria and her impressive, beautiful, calm and strong finhorses were the absolute highlight!

First, we brought our daughter to a ride. We arrived early, and we saw Maria taking care of the horses who had done the previous ride. we were welcomed immediately, and our daughter was invited to give the horses a brush, what she happily did. When you see Maria caring about her horses, you realize it's not just a business, it's her vocation.

The horses as well as the whole site are in excellent condition, and they seem to love going on a ride. Our daughter loved it, too. They started off through the deep snow for 1.5 hours, and it must have been an awesome experience. Maria offers rides for different levels, this one was for advanced riders. After the ride, the horses were brushed again and rewarded with some bread, while Maria told us a lot about her horses and the life in Lapland.

We really have fallen in love with her horses, and so we were really happy that we already had booked a sleigh ride for two days later, so it was only a short farewell.
Again we came early for the sleigh ride, and Maria was already in preparations. She explained everything she did, and she seems to value traditions, since she is using a harness that was already used by her grandfather. When everything was ready, we took place on the sleigh, and we started into the forest. Before, she had already said that Mahti, her horse, loves pulling the sleigh, and this really became obvious. It's so fascinating, experiencing Mahti's strength in front of the sleigh, while hearing the jingle bells and seeing the deep snowy forest. It was like a dream.
When we came back, of course we first cared about Mahti, and then Maria invited us for a tea and a nice and interesting chat.

However, for us it's clear that we have to come back to Finland, if only to spend time with Maria's horses again! We are very grateful for this amazing experience.

I booked a private sleigh ride for my family and a 2 hour experienced rider hack for myself. Both were superb - great horses, lovely countryside and a very knowledgeable guide, able to talk about specifically equestrian issues ( the harness, tack, etc) as well as discuss the nature, history and current issues concerning Lapland and Finland. will be back !

We had a wonderful time - first time riders in our 50’s and 60’s and it was made possible for us. The instruction was faultless and the ride was such good value we can throughly recommend.
