Successful 36th Horse Show in Helsinki

After two cancelled events during the Covid-19 pandemic, the Helsinki International Horse Show (HIHS) returned to Helsinki, probably more successfully than ever.

After two cancelled events during the Covid-19 pandemic, the Helsinki International Horse Show (HIHS) returned to Helsinki, probably more successfully than ever. In October, close to 52,000 visitors turned up over the 5-day event in the Helsinki Ice Stadium, right in the centre of the city. The famous sports arena, with its steep tribunes and compact infrastructure, provided a great atmosphere and ambience throughout the week.


The Helsinki International Horse Show offered world-class equestrian sport, also including official FEI Jumping World Cup Qualifier.

Supporting the event as a Golden Partner

Finnlines was one of the main corporate partners of the Horse Show, a “Golden partner”. The partnership with the event organizer brought widespread visibility before, after and during the show.


As Finnlines is an “HIHS’ Official carrier”, several international horses arrived in Finland on Finnlines’ passenger-cargo vessels from Germany and Sweden. Finnlines had a stand at the event, which gave the audience and contestants a chance to explore Finnlines’ services today as well as to have a first look at the future, to hear about the upcoming new Superstar vessels on the route Naantali–Långnäs–Kapellskär.
