    4.0 out of 5 stars Good game, but frustrating beginning December 28, 2012
    Verified Purchase
    I got this on sale, so it was worth the small price. I love any game with breeding, and they are hard to find. It is definitely "casual game" in terms of depth, which makes it a nice diversion -- not something to delve into deeply.

    It installed well, and plays without much hesitation. The graphics are quite nice. The horses are beautiful and relatively realistic. The simulation is not just in riding. You have to groom the horses, feed them, build facilities, manage money, and run facilities to make money. There are a variety of horses, and you can customize the rider's clothes by buying new items in the game.

    Starting out, I was rather frustrated. There is a lack of instruction and a lack of help with controls. It took a lot of trial and error to figure out the "foal training" which is the only way to make money early in the game. (Basically, if you mess up once, the foal stops responding to the controls, and the controls can be tricky to start with.) I also got frustrated trying to find the race tracks in the riding fields. If you have patience, and once you get the hang of it, it is a great game.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Fun game! March 17, 2013
    A Kid's Review
    This game is the best horse game I've ever played! It was really fun, and you can have up to nine horses. I really like this game because it's fun and challenging, but not too hard. There is three different places to ride in: fields, woods, and mountains. You can earn points too buy things in the shop by riding though the golden horseshoes in the riding spaces. You can earn money by training foals, massaging horses, taking in guests, and winning races (cross-country shows). Too compete in a competition, you have to train your horse by riding over jumps that you can find out riding.

    In the very beginning of the game, you design and name your person. Later in the game, you can change your person's clothes and hat, but not his or her hair color, gender, name, or skin color. After that, you design your first horse. You choose between three breeds and seven colors. Then you can choose a pattern, like dappled or white socks. You can't change anything about your horse later exept it's name.

    The foal training, the contols are easy once you figure it out. To make the foal go forward, left-click and pull the mouse to the side. To slow the horse down, you do the same thing exept you pull the other way. Easy! To give it a carrot, you just right-click. In massaging, you move around using the arrow keys, and massage by clicking. Sometimes it times you, but most of the time it doesn't. To control the horse, you use the mouse and left-click to go faster, and right-click to slow down. To quick-start, double left-click. To quick-stop, right-click twice.

    The aim of My Riding Stables 2 is to get a four star rating. You do this by completing certain tasks, like winning all of the fields races and building a bridge.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Addictive and Fun! March 3, 2013
    Verified Purchase
    I bought this game when I saw it on Amazon for under $3! Wow! I love horse games, but after basically beating Lucinda Greens Equestrian Challenge, I needed something new. I am an adult gamer who loves horses and PC games. Since I cannot ride in real life, this is the next best thing.

    First, this game can be frustrating to start out. To earn money, you have to train foals. Nobody as of yet has outlined how this is done, so I'm going to for anybody ready to pull out their hair.

    Foal Training:

    1. Always hold down the left mouse button!
    2. Flick right (across the horse) to have him turn right and left to have him turn left once.
    3. Flick the direction the horse is standing (right or left) twice or more to get him to speed up.
    4. Flick the mouse up or down to get him to change rings.
    5. When you see the purple boxes, you need to quickly flick the opposite direction the horse is going to get him to stop inside the rings as best you can. I guess I should say boxes, they are really boxes.
    6. Watch the screen up above to see what track the box is on and how close it is to the horse. The closer the better as you are timed. Turn your hose to be as close as possible to the boxes.
    7. Ornery horse? Quickly right click to feed it a carrot. You can pick carrots out your back door in the garden. You can only carry 9 at one time.

    Foal training takes practice. I think I lost about a dozen clients before I ever got paid. Luckily, you start out with enough money to buy food for your one horse.

    I'm playing the story line mode and really enjoying it. I don't find the grooming tedious like in some games. I do wish the character/horse would walk faster, even sped up, they are incredibly slow.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Don't be discouraged by foal training! July 15, 2014
    Verified Purchase
    It took me a while to figure out the controls for foal training, but once you figure it out its so easy you feel dumb. Don't let that discourage you from buying the game. The people who rated this low because of that reason clearly rated it that way because they couldn't figure out the controls. It's not that bad, trust me, I got frustrated too. Anyways, I'm not very far in the game but its already pretty good. The jump races are pretty good, and realistic. Grooming, feeding, riding, making money, etc... its pretty realistic. It's not 100% perfect like any other horse game there are flaws, but it's not bad. I recommend it honestly for any age young or older.
    What I don't like is that the color options and markings options are very minimal, and I mean VERY minimal. The breeds are minimal and to be honest it bugs the crap out of me that one of the breeds is a Friesian and they give you color options for it!? Seriously?! They're black, not gray, not cremello, not sorrel with white socks, they're black! Although technicalities bug me to no end. Another thing is there are not enough hours in the day to take care of everything you need to take care of, especially if you're trying to make money and take care of your horses at the same time, and I also wish that when you have guests that you could reserve horses for them to ride. I had a race and they took the horse I was going to use, so I couldn't race that day and I had to wait until the next scheduled race.

    Aside from the minor flaws it is still a good game and fun for hours. Highly recommend it :)
