My place – Ida Kallioinen

  • “The stable Wasaborgin talli is like my second home. I’ve grown very attached to it. First there was a smaller stable in the yard of Salmen kartano manor with a few ponies, and later the stable was extended. I go to the stable every day, both to ride and give lessons. I like animals and riding horses a lot."

For me, the stable is a place where I go when everyday life stresses me out. Here, I can relax and I can take my mind off things that cause me stress. Even though the COVID-19 pandemic has been difficult in many ways and, of course, we wear masks with our customers at the stable, when I get to ride a horse, it is exactly as before. That’s one thing that hasn’t changed. At the stable, I can even forget the global pandemic for a while.

The community is also very important at the stable. The group has always helped, supported and cheered me on; both in riding and in life in general. For me, it is an important lifeline.”
