Hobbyhorses / Caballitos de palo/ Chevaux de bâton / Cavalinhos de Pau

In English:

Hobbyhorses – booming hobby in Finland.

Hobbyhorse in Finnish “keppari” is much cheaper hobby than riding horses. It was a sunny Saturday in Helsinki in May, when I saw for the first time hobbyhorses live. What are hobbyhorses? They are stick horses with a stick and head. Heads are decorated spectacularly. Where to obtain a hobbyhorse? Hobbyhorses are sold in department stores, but many enthusiasts do them themselves. How many enthusiasts there are in Finland? The number is about 10000 varying between the ages of 10 and 18 and they are nearly all girls.

Is this a joke? No, because there are hold National Finnish Hobbyhorse Championship Games every year in which participants simulate traditional equestrian events, like dressage and show jumping. After photos I give some video links which show that hobbyhorsing is a challenging type.

My and my wife’s photos show future champions of hobbyhorsing – small lovely kids.

En español:

Caballitos de palo – afición en plena expansión en Finlandia.

Caballitos de palo en finlandés “keppari”, es un hobby mucho más barato que equitación. Fue un sábado soleado en Helsinki en mayo, cuando vi por primera vez caballitos de palo en vivo. ¿Qué son Caballitos de palo? Son caballos de palo con un palo y la cabeza. Las cabezas están decoradas espectacularmente. ¿Dónde obtener un caballito de palo? Se venden caballitos de palo en los grandes almacenes, pero muchos entusiastas los hacen ellos mismos. ¿Cuántos entusiastas hay en Finlandia? El número es de alrededor de 10.000 variando entre las edades de 10 y 18 y casi todas son las chicas.

¿Esto es una broma? No, porque todos los años se celebran los Juegos de Campeonato Nacional Finlandés de Caballitos de palo en los que los participantes simulan eventos ecuestres tradicionales, como el entrenamiento y carreras con obstáculos. Después de las fotos vos doy algunos enlaces de vídeo que muestran que el hobby de caballitos de palo es un tipo desafiante.

Las fotos de mi y de mi esposa muestran a los futuros campeones de hobbyhorsing – pequeños niños encantadores.

En francais:

Chevaux de bâton – hobby en plein essor en Finlande.

Cheval de bâton en finnois “keppari” est un passe-temps beaucoup moins cher que la de équitation. C’était un samedi ensoleillé à Helsinki en mai, lorsque j’ai vu pour la première fois les chevaux de bâton en direct. Quelles sont les chevaux de bâton? Ils sont chevaux de bâton avec un bâton et une tête. Les têtes sont décorées de façon spectaculaire. Où obtenir un cheval de bâton? Les chevaux de bâton sont vendus dans les grands magasins, mais beaucoup d’amateurs les font eux-mêmes. Combien d’enthousiastes y a-t-il en Finlande? Le nombre est d’environ 10000 variant entre les âges de 10 et 18 ans et elles sont presque toutes jeunes filles.

Est-ce une blague? Non, parce qu’il y a des Jeux Nationaux Finlandais de Championnat de cheval de bâton tous les ans où les participants simulent des événements équestres traditionnels, comme le dressage et le saut d’obstacles. Après les photos, je vous donne quelques liens vidéo qui montrent que le passe-temps de chevaux de bâton est un sport challenge.

Les photos de ma femme et de ma femme montrent les futurs champions du passe-temps de chevaux de bâton – petits enfants adorables.

Em Português:

Cavalinhos de Pau – passatempo crescente na Finlândia.

O hobby das cavalinhos de pau em finlandês “keppari” é um passatempo muito mais barato do que o equitação. Foi um sábado ensolarado em Helsinque, em maio, quando vi pela primeira vez o cavalinho de pau ao vivo. Quais são cavalinhos de pau? Cavalinhos de pau são com uma bastão e uma cabeça. As cabeças são decoradas espetacularmente. Onde obter um o cavalinho de pau?Os cavalinhos de pau são vendidos em lojas de departamento, mas muitos entusiastas fazê-los eles mesmos. Quantos entusiastas existem na Finlândia? O número é de cerca de 10000 variando entre as idades de 10 e 18 e quase todas são as meninas.

Isso é uma piada? Não, porque os nacional finlandês cavalinho de pau de jogos do campeonato realizarão todos os anos em que os participantes simulam eventos equestres tradicionais, como adestramento e saltos. Depois de fotos eu dou alguns links de vídeo a você que mostram que o hobby do cavalinho de pau é um tipo desafiador.

  1. Bonjour Matti,
    Amusant, j’aime bien les exercices de “dressage” en musique.
    J’ai découvert ce hobby horse il y a très peu de temps.
    Bises et belle journée.

  2. Pikakommentti! Olisi hyvä, jos kuvissasi olisi Pinterestin jakomerkki. Yleensäkin sosiaalisen median jakomerkit. Toiseksi: klikkasin valokuvaa suuremmaksi, mutta en päässyt siitä takaisin artikkeliin. Blogin käytettävyys on tärkeä lukijoiden kannalta! Muuten tosi hauskat nuo keppihevosten mestaruuskilpailut! Hyvää päivänjatkoa teille!

  9. The photos are great, and the’ horses’ are OK – as a ‘plaything’,that is, but – when people arrange competitions with this charade, it becomes rather stupid, I think!
    I know it costs a lot of money to stable a horse, but still . . . !
    (I could give it an all together different name, but I won’t! )

      Thank You for Your kind comment. You understand that this hobby requires and needs help of parents to maintain of the hobby. Happy together! In addition to this, competitors need develop their balance and rhythmic exercise etc.

      I think that this old tradition revised has a need in our modern days. Hobbies prepare the young ones to real life work.

    • Hi Terry.

      What a nice surprise that You have had hobbyhorses. These hobbyhorses are much beautiful than those which are sold, because many young girl want to decorate them themselves and thus they learn sewing for example at the same time. There few videos which teach how to make a hobbyhorse.

      Have a good day!

  17. Oh, that’s funny, Matti! Although I knew about hobbyhorses and actually I remember my own simple wooden one which I loved a lot when I was a small child, I didn’t know that such cute horses with cuddlesome heads and very lovely young equestrians are “en vogue” again. No idea about the existence of competitions or the fact that young “riders” participate in a kind of challenge! Seems they enjoyed it very much. It’s nice to see that such simple toys which do not have to be expensive can bring such a lot of joy and animate children to be outside or to improve their skills (motor skills, social behaviour etc.) while playing.

    I enjoyed this post very much! Thanks for your and Anja’s photos of this event.
    Have a nice Ascension Day!

    • Hello Michèle.

      Thank you very much for your praising comment. When reading these comments, it is amazing that many visitors have had their own hobbyhorse and memories from their childhood. Once in winter in Oulu, we saw three girls with their hobbyhorses, but we did not thought any more the matter. Today it was in Helsinki half a sunny day, but windy. We visited the area on which there will be built (2018-2025) the longest bridge in Finland connecting the Center of Helsinki and Laajasalo. I have plan to shoot photos from it every now and then.

      Happy Ascension Day to You and yours. Matti

  18. That is one of the most heartwarming things i have ever seen. Your photos are adorable. Our kids had hobby horses when they were young. I had no idea until this year that there were championships. I saw a video clip on the news recently about it. This will have me smiling all day!

  21. I went to Kaivopuisto last weekend as well and it was filled with all these cute little girls with their horsies. I was only expecting to see real horses but seeing all these hobbyhorses was so much fun. I used to have one when I was little, brought back great memories from my childhood.
