  1. The worst is dressage, which plays like a Simon-says rhythm-action game designed by people without rhythm. [Sept 2007, p.89]
  2. Send him (and the game) to the dogmeat factory. It's the most humane thing you could do. [Oct 2007, p.87]

    Fun, fun game to play. I just wish my four players could compete against each other. That would be a great enhancement. Also a little more variety in horse body types and colors would be great, not to mention riders. But a ton of fun regardless! Expand

    A great game, fun to play. There isn't much variety in the choices of horse breeds and colours, and the same with your rider. The care is very simple, you can click a button to feed your horse and given him water. The grooming and washing are also very simple, just moving your mouse over the horse. There are also treats, and there is a fly spray for your horse. This is the only horse game I know with fly spray, but that probably doesn't excite the target audience like it does me (a 13 year old girl who has been around horses for a long time, and is frustrated by the lack of realistic care in horse games!). My favourite part of the riding is the cross country. The landscapes are wonderful, and the jumps are absolutely magnificent! At the competitions, you jump real XC jumps, like you would see at those horse trials, unlike other games where you jump a couple of logs. Young girls probably won't notice this, but I loved it! The variety of show jumps is fantastic too, and both of these disciplines can be quite tricky which is good. The dressage isn't so good. You click the right arrow key in the right rhythm, which is a bit boring and I found it a little too fast in the 4 star events. The rest of the riding is brilliant, though! You also have different tack and outfits for your rider. Unlike other games, these are very traditional (no pink in the slightest, except for your cross country colours) and you can change the colour of your jacket and cross country colours. It's a great game, tons of fun for all horse lovers. Maybe the care is too simple for older horse lovers, or actual riders, and you can only compete and practise the same disciplines, which isn't very realistic as your horse would get bored (there's no hacking). But it is an amazing game, great fun for everyone! Expand
