From the Manufacturer
The Riding Stables at Mill Creek are nearly in ruins and it's up to you to take over the farm and transform it into a top notch riding facility. Compete for the cup in the big cross country races to make your dream come true.

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.
Although there are a few tedious aspects (maintaining hygiene becomes a chore, especially after you've been picking hooves and brushing over and over again for 3 hours straight and you have 9 horses that are always dirty and stressed out from being ridden by guests), without these tedious tasks the game would lack in realism and content.
It's well worth the money. I would pay more than $4 for this game.
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 :)
