[ENG] YURIE KONO – Horse journalist –

Hello! I’m YURIE KONO from Japan.

Welcome and thank you for visiting my website. Let me introduce myself!

  • Horse journalist
  • Born in 1994
  • From Fukuoka, Japan
  • Graduated from Tokyo University of Agriculture

I’ve loved horses since I was a child.

At university, I majored in Equine Assisted Therapy.

My travels abroad sparked my interest in horse culture overseas, and after studying English, I moved to Europe in 2017.

Now I am working to spread a wide range of information about horse culture and horse utilization in Europe, and promote equine culture in Japan.


What is “Horse journalist”?

On a global scale, the Japanese horse industry is still very small.

There are more than 58 million horses on the planet. However, there are only about 70,000 horses in Japan. This is less than 1% of the total number of horses in the world.

Where there are horses, there are always people and industries related to horses. So, if we can take a hint from the horse industry overseas, the Japanese horse industry can become much more active.

What can I do for the Japanese horse industry?

My answer is to use my English skills to work as a horse journalist.

I would like to increase the amount of information and projects related to horses, and the opportunities to become familiar with horses, and make horses more familiar in Japan.

If we do this, more horses will be able to make people happy, and more people will be able to make horses happy.

I want to create such a future.
