Winter Horse Training In Hokkaido

HOKKAIDO, JAPAN - FEB. 12: A public livestock center here is conducting special training for horses to keep their fitness during the winter time, which is called horse chasing practices. In the morning of Thursday, February 12, trainers at Tokachi Farm in Otofuke Town let 105 horses, including 57 pregnant ones and some of which weigh nearly one ton, run on the snowy ground to attain better fitness. The temperature outside was minus 10.6 but the horses speedily run. Trainers say heavy snow prevents horses from running around outside thereby making them out of fitness and rising the danger of hardship during their deliveries. The horses kept here are sold to horse racing company elsewhere in Hokkaido or municipalities as breeding horses for traditional horse march festival in Iwate prefecture.
