The fastest Finnhorse:
Originally, the Finnhorse wasn't an exceptionally fast breed. However, when public trotting races started to take place in Finland during the 19th century, breeders realized that they must improve the speed of the Finnhorse in order to increase its popularity. To achieve this, they crossed Norfolk Trotters with their Finnhorses, and thus the Trotter Finnhorse was born.
Today, trotting races are still one of the most popular sports in Finland, and the Trotter Finnhorse is the most popular subtype of Finnhorse. It is the fastest coldblood horse in existence.
Trotter Finnhorses are bred for speed, and this is evident in their conformation. While their body has enough muscles to generate great speed, it is also light enough to not hinder said speed. Compared to the other Finnhorse types, Trotter Finnhorses have long bodies, particularly in their backs and legs, ensuring maximal length of stride.
