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.
