What is the Finnish Hobby Horse Championship?

In the city of Seinäjoki in Finland, when someone says horse, the locals immediately think of the great Finnish hobby horse championships. The estimated games were held for the tenth time in 2023.

Established by the Finnish Toy Horse Association, the Finnish Toy Horse Championship brings together more than 1,500 participants from Finland and abroad. The sporting event is more than a competition; is a celebration of the passion, creativity and joy that toy horses bring to people’s lives.

For those unfamiliar with horse toys, these are children’s toys that traditionally feature a stuffed horse’s head attached to a long wooden stick. As children, people are familiar with these toys as part of their imaginary horseback adventures, but even after growing up, Finns enjoy the joy of playing with a toy horse.

In the championship, contestants participate in different categories such as show jumping, 80 cm team show jumping, high jump, dressage, kür and western riding. It’s fun and fascinating to watch. There’s certainly humor in watching a grown woman run around a stadium while she pretends to ride a horse’s head on a stick. But like any performance, there’s a skill to it.

I wonder how long they train each day and at what age they start. Is there anyone who would say that their parents were champion Hobby Horses, so it’s in their DNA?
