The story of Wesunda

A CHILDHOOD DREAM COMES TRUE

One day I found my essay from secondary school. The topic I wrote about 30 years ago was amazingly close to what the future Wesunda Dressage and its operation will be. The idea of a horse center started as a child. The decision to start the planning of this dream started in 2016 during a horse trip in Holland, where I was inspired about this future project. Then the details of the dream began to take shape towards its final form and operational concept. Exactly what is currently being built in Hattula.

RESPECTING THE HISTORY IN A MODERN OPERATING ENVIRONMENT

Wesunda Dressage brings horse life back to the cultural and historical landscapes of Vesunta in Hattula. There have been horses in the area throughout its history, and the name of the area on the map is Hevoshaka. Wesunda Dressage wants to cherish the tradition of the region. The future center and its operations are exactly this at its best. In the architecture, attention has been paid to the style, appearance and material choices of the buildings, so that the dignity of the area and its history would emerge with the horses while also respecting the environment. It should be mentioned that the name Wesunda goes back to the 14th-15th centuries, when the names Wesundia and Vesunda were used for the Vesunta manor.

The value of Wesunda

The spirit of Wesunda is the result of its values. We help ambitious equestrians reach the next level andchaise for their dreams. To fulfill our mission we are committed to four core values that define how we operate.

Ambition

The core of our activity is goal-oriented dressage and horse management. It includes maintaining,
supporting and developing goals and educational level.

Professionalism

We offer a professional facilities and operating environment for training dressage riding.

Wellbeing

The idea of Wesunda Dressage was born from love to dressage. We want to spread that love by creating
wellbeing to everyone we work with.

Openness

Wesunda is the place where you can live and breathe dressage. A place where the culture of openness,
learning from each other, and cheering for each other, drive individuals and the whole Finnish dressage
community forward.

Responsibility

Wesund Dressage’s operations are planned with environmental values in mind. Our goal is to achieve an environmental certification in the future, the principles of which we will commit to. We will keep our carbon footprint small by, among other things, investing in fossil-free energy, energy efficiency, reducing wastage, and carefully selected feed suppliers. We operate under the conditions of the horses’ well-being, taking into account their species-typical needs, updating our experience with the latest research information. The respect between horses and people are mutual.

Wesunda team

Wesunda’s staff will consist of a committed team, with a stable manager, horse
grooms, trainer, riders etc. If you are interested in being part of us, feel
