5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun for horse fans! 11 April 2006
By A Customer
I recently bought this title for my 10 year old daughter who has just started horse riding and getting in to all thing's horsey! She loved learning about the different kinds of horses and how to care for them and refers to the information on the CD on a regular basis! For such a fab price, both me and my daughter were more than happy and I'd definately reccomend this to fans of horses.

It provides lots and lots of info for horsey people. It has a corral to help match you up with the perfect horse. This game is a MUST for horsey lovers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 10 Oct 2002
I found this software very easy to use. The games and quizes are a great way to learn about the many breeds. The only dissadvantage was the use of American English, and explaining to children why some words and phrases appear incorrect. Otherwise excellent for all ages, and great fun to use. Also good value for money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Guide to Horses 19 Feb 2006
By Silven
This has good value for money, but only that. It has lots of information on most horse breeds, and quizes and even a "find the perfect pony for you place" but it is very hard to get to run. I have only played it once because of this, so, if you want one time of game play for £6.99, go ahead. Otherwise, you probably shouldn't buy this game!
