Helsinki Carriage Horses

Helsinki has carriage horses in its parks, just as NYC does.

I only photographed these horses, I didn’t go for a carriage ride, although I think a carriage ride would have been fun (even though it was raining frequently throughout this day).


Unlike NYC carriage horses, most of which are quite fond of people, these horses were quite cross and seemed to really hate people.

This is the most rotund pony I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen some misshapen ponies in my life!

    Maybe the white pony was pregnant? Either that or it’s got a very bad case of worms. Either way, I’m not sure that horse should be ridden. Looks to be in bad need of a clipping too.
