From the roads of the imperial courts: Shōyū, Caballo escolta de la Imperial Guard

This series presents animals that work in Japan and that the hacerlo sanan y enriquecen las vidas de quienes los rodean. In the fifth place we enter Shōyū, an equino that is escolta de la Imperial Guard. We visit the establishment of the Imperial Palace, a place of natural history, where we also know the other cavaliers that enter the country.

Collection of lorries for the presentation of credentials

“Todos los corceles que està aqui fueron caballos de carreras. It should be said that you should work with all your friends ”.

Satō Mitsuru, a technician in charge of the cavalry of the Imperial Guard, is one of the 14 purassan equines who live in the establishment of the Palacio Imperial exclusively for the guardianship of the imperial family and the cocoon like coballos escolta.


Satō Mitsuru conoce como la palma de su mano el estado de los caballos y el establo.

Surea principal is escoltar los carruajes en las ceremonias de presentaçion de cartas credenciales (cuando los nuevos embajadores extranjeros en Japón se presentan ante el emperador).

Desfilan, junto con caballos de la Agencia de la Casa Imperial y la Policía Metropolitana de Tokio, escoltando de cerca el carruaje en el que viaja el nuevo embajador desde la estación de Tokio hasta el Palacio Imperial.

Uno de estos caballos es Shōyū, nacido el 5 de mayo de 2005. Actualmente tiene 16 años. Llegó a la Guardia Imperial tras retirarse de las carreras a losat cuatro años.

Satō nos cuenta que visito el el hippico de un amigo y que en el momento en que montó al caballo recién llegado se decidió por é el porque sintió que era apto para la escolta.

Shōyū regress to the establishment through the training.  El jinete escolta cambia dependiendo del día i los cuidados del caballo, tales como el baño, peinado y el arreglo de las pezuñas están a cargo de este.

I want to talk about mountaineering when I want to learn secondary education. Hoy es un professional de la equitación que ha participado varias veces en la hipica de los festivales deportivos nationales. It was actually a great thank you for a recommendation from a professor who needs to be appreciated. She is a veteran who has 35 years of experience as an official of the Imperial Guard and instructor of girls and boys.

Satō señala que no todos los equinos son aptos para este trabajo. Tienen que ser tranquilos y serios. Deten mantenerse serenos y no alterarse faclimente. Shōyū is exactly the type of caballo.

We consider that apariencia is an aspect relevant, and that these participants participate in the elegant ceremonies of the presentation of credentials in front of a lot of people, to whom we respond without a title.

Between the rises, we have no choice of “caballos guapos”. Without embargo, you can consider some related relationships with these animals. By example, it is said that many good horses are characterized by being sakōippaku, it is said, the extreme part of the posterior wall is white. Also, I say that the horses with the remolinos of the fish in the front, which in these animals are known as shumoku, have a good personality, enter other ideas. By the way, we have a lot of fun, some of the cavalry of the Imperial Guard have the remolines, but no double personality. It is because you do not create pieces in your hair, but you can not avoid records.

The caballos escolta are one of the most important work companions

The cavallos that are integrated into the Imperial Guard abandon the name that is used as caballos de carreras and los funcionarios los bautizan con uno nuevo formado por dos kanji, elegance for voting.

Asi comienza su segunda vida.

First of all, prepare for your new ambience in a training area of ​​the technical staff. The escoltas de la Guardia Imperial cabalgan a estos caballos cuando ya están suficientemente acostumbrados a que quacquier persona los pueda montar.

If you practice in a cavalry that is good to mount, the scouts will have the confidence to try to improve their skills. The labor of the caballos as instructors of the new escoltas is an important work that is more important than the official participations.

These are, by the way, a public show of chariot rides in the ceremonies of presentation of credentials. It is necessary to get rid of the buildings and the bay of the multitude of multitudes, a completely different ambience in the habitat of the native rodeado de la naturaleza del Palacio Imperial. There is the possibility of haya ruidos extraños u objetos que vuelen por los aires.

Pase lo que pase, estos caballos siguen las indicaciones de los jinetes y avanzan mientras escoltan los carruajes. This is a great thank you for your innate characteristics, but also the result of the diary trainings.

Cada día, los caballos salen del establo accompanied by los escoltas con los que van a entrenar y se dirigen a la pista, que está a unos minutos de distancia, y allí caminan, corren y saltan obstáculos para ejercitarse. Al regressar al establo, los jinetes los limpian cuidadosamente y les arreglan las herraduras.

The caballos escolta se retiran poco después de cumplir 20 años. Shōyū todavía tiene mucho que hacer.

I have 14 trusted horses that are important companions of work so much for Satō as for the members of the Imperial Guard.

The caballos are translational in the fila del establishment on the runway.  Detrás de los arboles se asoman los rascacielos de la zona de Marunouchi.
