Towada Horseback Riding Club

115-2, Aza Saihaba, Oaza Sanbongi, Towada City, Aomori Prefecture,Japan
Telephone Number 0176-26-2945

An outdoor horseback riding excursion provides a sense of thrill and freedom that cannot be experienced within the equestrian club. What better way to unwind than to soak in refreshing natural surroundings while swaying gently on the back of a horse? Surrounded by greenery and rarely frequented by people or cars, the area around the equestrian club is the perfect environment for venturing out on a horse. Unlike going to an outdoor riding area, this activity can be done with just one person. The club will help depending on your skill level, from beginner to advanced, so that you can venture out easily at any time.

Information on the 3-day yabusame intensive lesson pack

Yabusame is an ancient Japanese martial art in which archers riding a horse compete for marks by shooting arrows at targets. Archers release an arrow atop a horse galloping at full speed. It is a fast-paced, exciting, and dignified event involving solemn rites and manners. The harness and the archer’s costume are also in a stately, ancient style.

This is a three-day intensive program designed primarily for people who have horseback riding experience. It teaches the basic theory of yabusame, horseback riding, archery, and Japanese-style harness according to the skills of the participants.
