Take the Reins

This game is actually very good. Although it has it's slight "problems", so did the first Pippa Funnel game, and this one has better looking horses.
You are a teenage girl who has been acepted to a riding school, along with four other pupils. The first thing you do is exciting, and get's you gripped right away! After completing the first task, you're given your timetable, which has set tasks on it for the first few days ( a day has four subjects. You can do as many days at a time as you want) and then you get to pick your own subjects.
As you progress threw the game, your horse becomes more able, and you start doing harder courses. After every week, there is a competition, and to get into it you have to have met the standards for that week. The standards are Popularity, Horse Level, Dressage, Show Jumping, and Cross Country.
Show jumping is the funnest part of the game in my opinion. The jumps are nicely painted, and ti feels good to get a clear round (no faults).
The glitches in the game are after competitions or during cut scenes. However, if you play the disk again straight away, and re-do the bit you just did before it crashed, the game should continue without another problem at that bit. However, if you go away for a while, then load the disk again, it will crash again.
Overall, I would say this game is very good. Have a notebook on you though, as you need to write some things down!
