Donate a hair sample

By donating a hair sample you have a chance to contribute to vital genetic research.

We are currently looking for horses who have been diagnosed with one or more of the following diseases:


Bone chip in a joint / osteochondrosis dissecans

Dorsal Displacement of the Soft Palate

Sweet itch


If you wish to donate a hair sample please send us an email via info(at) and we will provide you with instructions and a sample collection kit. Donating a hair sample is free of charge and when any results are available in the future you will be among the first ones to know.

 Before you submit your sample, your horse must be diagnosed with at least one of the diseases listed above. All diagnoses must be verified by a veterinarian. The campaign is anonymous: you can choose whether you want to submit identifying information such as the name or registration number of your horse. All information will be handled confidentially and will be saved in a secure database.



We are proud collaborators with the following equine clinics in Finland:
