About Eponi


A toy -and so much more!

It's difficult to imagine a toy with continued popularity through generations, finally becoming a popular teenage trend without a single tv ad. Yet hobbyhorses have been known to exist at least since the Middle Ages, and in recent years their popularity has exploded --and not just as a children's toy, but as a hobby for all ages! Hobbyhorsing has grown into an organized sport and a hobby within a decade. An entire world of hobbyhorsing is run by the enthusiasts (most of them teenage girls, but all ages and genders are involved), including competitions, training camps, shows and coaching for those who aim for the annual hobbyhorse championships held by the Finnish Hobbyhorse Association. Even though hobbyhorse riding can be competetive, the hobby itself is free-form and accepting of all ways to enjoy hobbyhorsing. Some hobbyists are less interested in riding and concentrate more on photography, showing, collecting and making hobbyhorses, or creating Youtube videos.

Even though the media has portrayed hobbyhorsing as a Finnish fad, it is an established hobby that's just lately started to gain enough momentum to be noticed, and it's not just Finland where it's all happening. Hobbyhorsing has gained a following all across the world, and its popularity is still on the rise. Hobbyhorsing is here to stay, and for a good reason: it's just a world of fun!

How Eponi Came to Be

Eponi began as a craft project between me and my Goddaughter, and eventually grew into a home business! Eponi is a registered, tax-paying company without ambitions to compete with multinational toy corporations and their sweatshops. Each Eponi hobbyhorse is handmade and unique, and come with a name and a register number on the stick.

Sizes of the horse heads vary, fitting a A4 to A3 standard paper sheets. Tack is not included unless specified. Not for children under 3 years old.
