Our family

"Happy greetings! I'm Sanna, the entrepreneur of the Valkeavaara stable and the eternal horse girl. I work full-time as a psychiatric nurse in student health care in Joensuu. I run stable activities part-time in the evenings and on weekends, as well as during my holidays. I've been working with horses for over 30 years, my first pony I got when I was 9 years old, and that's the way my heart stayed with the horses. As a child, I had a big dream of my own horse stable, which I am now fortunately enough to been able to establish. A big thank you to my beloved husband for his support, help and compassion in fulfilling my dream. I love animals and hiking in the forests and I want to share these awesome experiences with you, our lovely guests. I have been living abroad for many years and I would love to have a lot of foreign tourists as our guests. I wish you warmly welcome to visit us!"

"Hi, I'm Sami, Sanna´s husband. I am a multi-tasker in our stable. I'm helping with horse adventures, horse camps and where ever my help is needed. Sometimes I also go on family rides with horses with my wife and daughter. I spend my free time boating, fishing and hunting"

" Hi, I'm Ninni, a 11-year-old eager horse girl. I've been riding since I was 4 years old and I'm dreaming of my own free jumping horse. I love cats and taking care of the horses. I work in our horse camps during the summer."

"Hello. I'm Kasper, 15 years old. I help to take care of the horses and work also on our horse camps. Otherwise, I'm more interested in mopeds and gym than horses, but I've been riding a horse from time to time. I am half german so my language skills are very good."

In addition to our horses, we have three cats  (Lilli, Putti and Potteri) and three dogs (Gugi, Niisku and Lalli)
