Okayama Horseback Riding Club

Horses have an all-knowing eye and a beautifully sculpted body that is attractive to watch and therapeutic to touch. Were you aware of these healthy benefits?

At roughly the same 370-meter altitude of the Astro Cottage “Galileo” the Okayama Horseback Riding Club cares for about 50 horses in an open pasture environment. At this, the largest, horseback riding club in western Japan you can enjoy watching famous racehorses in comfortable retirement while trekking through a beautiful natural environment. Kibichuo Town, as a “therapy resort town,” aims to ease the heart of visiting patients through horse therapy. People can feel relaxed around horses because their body temperature of 37 to 38 degrees Celsius is the same as that of human amniotic fluid. This method of therapy is a recognized medical treatment covered by medical insurance in various countries around the world. It was also found after World War II that soldiers who were responsible for caring for horses were able to overcome their emotional trauma. Using the most up to date instruments available at Okayama Horseback Riding Club we can diagnose physical disorders within 5 minutes, and the proceeding horse therapy is endorsed by academic government authorities. Please do not hesitate to take a healing step into horse therapy.
