It all starts with catching your own horse with your own hands! Learn more about your new partner by doing a horse health check, and saddle the horse yourself. They're not just another form of transportation; this program invites you to become friends with the horses. What an exciting new relationship to experience!

Trek through the vast forests of Nagareyama to where the horses are. Become a horse catcher by catching the horse you are to ride today with your own hands!

When you step in to the horse's territory, and you realize the horses are free to graze and move with the herd, you might feel a little scared at first. But when you see that free horse stop and stand still, as if accepting you and allowing you to approach it..., that instant is indescribably moving.

Receive a "Log Book" and start to learn and take notes about your horse and its condition. Measure it's body temperature, feel the pulse, and try to listen to the horse. A unique experience you cannot encounter every day.
Once you know the horse's condition, learn how to saddle the horse, and have a short riding lesson in the practice grounds before stepping out into the woods.
Instead of just riding a horse already prepared for you, learn how to have a living animal become your friend!

There are many different courses available to ride through, so you won't get bored no matter how many times you come to visit. By coming often, you can level up from beginner to intermediate and advanced, from short to long courses, and even travel through the deep forests with your horse. Thanks to that, this program has many repeat visitors.
  • Start by catching your horse with your own hands! Try brushing, check the body temperature, hear the horse's heartbeat, and saddle the horse yourself.

  • Complete with a horse riding lesson, beginners are very welcome.

  • We also recommend trekking through the winter forest. The peace you feel from the sound of only the horse's hoofs and breathing is something you will only truly understand after experiencing it yourself!
