The Equestrian Museum of Finland

The purpose of the Equestrian Museum of Finland is to document, store, study and publish information about the history of horse sports in Finland for the general public and scholars. The Museum is located in the historical Siittolanmäki area of Ypäjä Equine College.

The collections of the Museum consist of artefacts dating from the 1200s to the present. Each year a new exhibition illustrates the relationship between horses and humans in a changing society.
  


  

The Museum has four collections:

Riding in the Olympics and Championships
Artefacts of Cavalry Regiments
Historical State Stud at Siittolanmäki
Trotter Racing

The Museum has an extensive library and a photo archive.

Most buildings and lands of Siittolanmäki are protected under the Museums Act. The Museum also looks after the sculptures and memorials in the area.
  

Publications of the Museum include a book about the history of gallop racing in the capital city Helsinki (2010) and a book about the horses owned by Finland’s presidents in Siittolanmäki (2012).
