Mar 16, 2008
For any horse lovers, it is great fun finding horse games to play. Now, there are so many choices out there, you can always find the right ones for you whether you are an ace rider or having no riding skills at all. The invention of online games means you do not have to play with real horses all the time.

Playing with Real Horses

Real horse games are great if you belong to an equestrian group. You may think this kind of games are old-fasioned, but in fact they are still popular. You can play traditional slow paced races, obstacle jumping or relay games. You can also play contest games to see how well riders have trained their horses to respond to such commands as bend, turn or canter. Equally enjoyable horse games are grooming and horse leading.

Safety should be your number one concern if you choose to play with real horses. Make sure that the games fit the skill of the riders who are playing and that you have the right space that can accommodate horses at play. Most of all, you should have horse experts around who can readily respond to emergencies.

Computer Games

Admittedly, real horse games are not cheap and you may have to stick to some rigid schedule. One alternative for horse lovers would be to play online games instead. There are a great variety of games to play. You can sign up for paid membership so you can have unlimited access to horse games. There are also free sites that will allow you to play online or download games. You also have the option of playing by yourself or playing with other registered players.

Horse games to play online are even more varied than actual horse games. You can settle for simple puzzle, drawing, memory or grooming horse games. You can also opt for more competitive racing or show jumping games in which you choose your own horses and compete with other players.

If you are looking for even more challenges, you can pick games that require you to plan for your own horse or horses. There are many different games like these. The best ones will let you look after your horse from its youth until it becomes big enough to ride. In these games you are responsible for everything your horse will ever need from food to its gear. There are even some games that will let you look after more than one horse until you have enough horses to have your own stable. You can then choose from any of your horses for a race or some other contest.

For game players, online games are much safer and you can play any time you like. They also allow you to meet and interact with new people everyday. Some players eventually learn the value of responsibility and organizational skills through these online games.

Before you start, you may like to check out what other players say about a particular game. There are some sites that offer player perspectives on some games. Check these out to discover which games are worth your time.

No one can answer for your what are the best horse games to play. Different people just have different preferences. However, as long as you are a horse lover, you are definately able to find the ones you will enjoy.
