    First of all, you CAN SAVE. All you need to do is play the easy first 2 quests and when you get into the academy you go to your computer in your dorm room and you can save from there. There is a PDF manual in the folder that you installed that helps explain the basics of the game.

    The graphics are not the greatest, but for a riding game, they aren't horrible, and the game is fairly in-depth. My biggest complaint is the game does tend to be a bit unstable and crash every now and then.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Fun-ish could be better June 1, 2011
    Verified Purchase
    I have a vista and it runs pretty smoothly but for some reason when you first start the game the controls don't work. I always have to make the game go down (by pressing the start button on keyboard) and then bring it back up and then the controls work. The game sometimes gets skippy or jumpy especially when cantering the horse and you'll run into rocks and you fall off...but its bearable though so anyway. The graphics are alright they could be better but there okay. The controls are annoying - in the game they don't tell you what they are and its not the standard key up, down, left etc. You have to read the pdf file that came with your game download and it will tell you the controls and give you some information. You get to shop for clothes which is fun and get to choose a horse. There's not a whole lot of people communication in the game (there is a lot of people walking around but you can't always talk to them though) so it does get boring if you like to talk to people and do your goals.

    By the way for the tournaments, you have to have western and english attire or you can't compete but you don't need the western/english saddle though just the clothes. Also, choose the campaign one not the free game one because the campaign one is the start of the game and is the beginning of the game and gives you information about beginning of your academy stay there. Basically you have find some things out for yourself like there is a board in the school and barn office and you click on it to get your stuff set up to get the game going on a time basis (your day starts at 7 am and classes begin at 8am on M-F) you do feed horse and the gate that is around the barn that has hay in it that is where you feed the horse at (took me a while to figure that out).

    1.0 out of 5 stars it wouldn't download!!!!!! December 31, 2012
    A Kid's Review
    I tried getting this game today, and I tried several times to download, even though it warned me that it would put my PC at risk (yeah, i know, i was a idiot to do that), and all it would do, it either restart my computer before it started downloading, or after it was at like, 34%, it would restart. I have a Toshiba, with Windows 8 on it, and i thought maybe that was the problem, even though my mom said it shouldn't be it. For only 2.16, its not THAT big of a deal, but for those of you who have Windows 8, i would keep in mind that it might not work. I was really looking forward to getting, and playing this game on my new computer (the one i am using now) but maybe i can get it on something else... Oh well.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best game ever April 1, 2013
    Verified Purchase
    I love this game. Sometimes the game becomes wiggly but it settles down. The only things I don't know how to do are jump or slow my horse down and I also don't know how to back my horse up.
