    Default Also playing, but frustrated

    I think my favorite part of the game so far is when he just stands still in the paddock, eating grass. Similar to real life!
    YES, me too! His tail movements, the way he rubs his face on his leg, all of those little details are spot-on. Makes my little horse-lovin' heart happy. And he's so cute when you rub his face. So I want to know, if the developers were able to nail those items, why the hell did they louse up so many other things?? Like, why does the poor horse move like a giraffey-Paso?? I've barely ever seen one of those in person and yet I still thought of that immediately!

    My other major beef is, what is up with the conformation? Horribly swaybacked, for starters. And that chest... not sure what to call it except for the extreme opposite of pigeon-breasted. More like no-breasted, I guess. He actually reminds me of an Akhal-Teke with that body shape and head carriage - maybe that's what they studied?

    And finally, for the love of God, people, why is it so frickin' hard to get tack right. See: every Barbie horse ever sold, bad model horses, coloring books, cartoons, etc. It is beyond simple to do a Google search for, say, "show jumping tack." A saddle with no horn, a rounded forward flap, and a white pad. DUHHHH!!!! This makes me CRAY-ZEE, I tell you!

    Since I confess to never, ever playing any computer games of any type, my teenage son had to show me how to run this app (he also found it for me, was much excited, and is playing, too). I think I've driven him away though with all my complaints as listed above. He did get a good laugh when at my first competition I managed to crash right through the jump (and the poor animal isn't booted yet, since I haven't "earned enough coins" to buy those) because I was too busy peering through my bifocals at the rider's clothing. Can you say a well-deserved last place...

    I'm RiderWriter and my horse is named Victrix if anyone wants to play with me.

    The other thing I like about the paddock scene is the background noise- the chirping birds, the occasional barking dog or mooing cow- very peaceful!

    So how do you get more credits in the blue box in the upper left corner? Is it just from how long you play?

    I'm not much of a computer games person, so I'm probably missing lots of obvious things.

    Now I've reached that stage. More wackiness!

    With all the jumps I can remember in my life, I don't recall a single one where I had to tell the horse to land on the other side of the jump. Once they leave the ground, gravity pretty much takes care of the rest!

    If you visit your friends and brush their horse and clean it's paddock it will give you more coin.

    Mines started saying I have 0 presentation when it should be 113

    The dirty horse in the game looked a lot like my actual horse on a muddy day a few weeks ago, except luckily the game horse did not find a burdock bush with his tail!

    Gaaa I'm so depressed... My iPod Touch isn't new enough to play the game. Y'all get me all excited. Silly 2nd generation.. this is also the first time I've noticed an app that won't play on a certain gen rather than a certain iOs

    YES! I've always hoped someone would say that to me one day! Do me a favor and fix my grammar though...there should be a comma after "riding"

    If I remember correctly, the game randomly assigns a username, mine was something strange like ButterFrog18 or whatever before I changed it!

    I just attempted the Covington Open for the first time.

    Is it just me, or does the horse canter right through the white gate jump before he turns back and jumps it? That was a distraction.
