Niikappu Horoshiri Horse Riding Club

“Niikappu Horoshiri Horse Riding Club” is located in the Hidaka area on the southwestern coast of Hokkaido, which is famous for its racehorses.
This is where many of the most famous Japanese racehorses were born, raised and trained.

Here “Horoshiri Horse Riding Club”, you can enjoy riding former race horses that actually competed in big-named races in central and regional racetracks.
Why don’t you saddle up a thoroughbred and give it a try?

Our location alongside Route 235 at the top of the hill is easily accessible and offers a splendid view of the sea and forests.
The very popular “Trial Horse Trekking” course is sure to make wonderful memories!
Even those who have never touched a horse can enjoy horse riding in forests after practicing an easy hand rope (rein) technique.

If you visit Hokkaido, you can’t miss this great experience!
