    I'm a 13 year old girl who loves horses (I take riding lessons and help with friends' ponies) and I've had this game for a while now. At first, it's brilliant. Call me sad, but I love to watch the ponies in the paddock, grazing and trotting around. The care isn't very realistic, but good for children, and the hacking is wonderful.

Call me sad, but I love to watch the ponies in the paddock, grazing and trotting around. The care isn't very realistic, but good for children, and the hacking is wonderful. I love the different environments and I think it's amazing that you can pat your pony whilst you ride! However, you can only walk and gallop on a hack, and walking gets a bit boring. The animals are cute, and it's great to take photos of the easy ones but some are very well hidden. The horse responds to you when you stroke him, and has his fave treat. Creating the pony is fun, too, with lots of patterns and colours to choose from, or you can buy a breed of pony. Although it is a great game, it does get boring after a while. The races are repetitive, and with limited riding there is only so much you can do. Overall, it's a good game for young children (not just girls, but it is mainly aimed at them) as it is quite easy and fun to begin with. There isn't much writing or instructions, so it's suitable for young children. However, older children and teenagers will probably find this game boring after a while. If your involved with horses in any way, the simplicity is slightly annoying. But I still recommend this game to anyone who loves horses! Expand

  1. If you're don't shiver with excitement at the mere thought of a lovely pretty little pony, forget about this, but if you have a daughter who is overwhelmed by the desire to put pink things on mammals, then this is an excellent little package that has plenty more to offer than two halves of a coconut, and comes in at far less than the cost of a saddle.

    Pretty damn ugly, but will make a little girl happy somewhere. [July 2007, p.70]

    Ideal pet care title for the target audience. Not so much for others. [July 2007, p.84]
