Rider's Guide To The Best Horse Riding Computer Games

Lucinda Green's Equestrian Challenge
1.  Lucinda Green's Equestrian Challenge by Red Mile
The list author says:
"I didn't think I would have a new favorite, but now I do.  This game is incredible!  The horse looks realistic.  The coat colors and patterns are numerous.  There isn't a story line, you just take care of your horse (very easy) and train or ride in competitions."

SADDLE UP - TIME TO RIDE (JEWEL CASE)
2.  SADDLE UP - TIME TO RIDE (JEWEL CASE) by UBI SOFT
The list author says:
"From Lexis Numerique.  This could be the best horse riding game I have played.  There are some things I don't like about it, but it is the best so far."

Saddle Up With Pippa Funnell
3.  Saddle Up With Pippa Funnell by Ubisoft
The list author says:
"This is also by Lexis Numerique.  I love this game!  I have played this several times now.  The only thing that I don't like is it takes at least 30 minutes to train a horse to top level."

Champion Dreams: First to Ride
4.  Champion Dreams: First to Ride by Ubisoft
The list author says:
"From Lexis Numerique, this is a really wonderful game.  The setting takes place in Scotland, America, and Morocco; it is amazing!  The only drawbacks are the inaccuracies in the dressage movements and the difficulty in hosing the horse down."

Horsez
5.  Horsez by Ubisoft
The list author says:
"From Lexis Numerique, this game plays much like Champion Dreams.  I'm guessing there will be fewer of these around because this title will be re-released as Pippa Funnell: The Golden Stirrup Challenge.  The dressage part is a little funky, but overall, very rewarding with a great story line and awesome graphics."

Petz Horsez 2
6.  Petz Horsez 2 by Encore
The list author says:
"This game is lots of fun.  I bought the Playstation 2 version instead of PC but. There are a couple of things that get tedious such as grooming and riding to competitions"

Championship Horse Trainer
8.  Championship Horse Trainer by eGames
The list author says:
"I have to say, this is my favorite horse racing sim!  The graphics are bad and the storyline is nil, but the riding is very good.  Most of the training exercises are similar to what I did riding racehorses.  I don't think everyone would like this game, but for horse racing this is the best I've played."

Let's Ride: Silver Buckle Stables
9.  Let's Ride: Silver Buckle Stables by Value Software
The list author says:
"I am really impressed with this effort from ValuSoft.  This is really entertaining and offers a different pace because it is centered around western riding.  The options for horse coloring are greater than most games and caring for the horse is easier as well."

Let's Ride! The Rosemond Hill Collection
10.  Let's Ride! The Rosemond Hill Collection by ValuSoft
The list author says:
"Possibly the best in the Let's Ride collection.  There are many tasks you must do during the course of the game.  I have played this game over several times.  One of my favorites.  The graphics are a bit dated though."

Saddle Club: Willowbrook Stables (PC) (Computer Game)
12.  Saddle Club: Willowbrook Stables (PC) (Computer Game) by Atari
The list author says:
"This is getting old and graphics aren't that great, but if you love horses and you love mysteries, this game will be a sure-fit.  I have Windows 2000 and it runs very well on it."

Lets Ride: Champion's Collection
16.  Lets Ride: Champion's Collection by Valuesoft

Let's Ride: Friends Forever
18.  Let's Ride: Friends Forever by Valusoft
The list author says:
"This game is more difficult to play than it would appear on the box.  I find myself almost constantly grooming my horse.  Raising a foal is cute.  There are very few color choices and no choices for markings."

Riders World Competition - Windows
19.  Riders World Competition - Windows by CDV
The list author says:
"Not too bad, the jumping is a bit tricky though.  This has three games in it: racing, steeplechasing, and riding (aka Rider's World: I Want To Ride).  Worth the money."
$4.97   Used & New from: $1.98
Riders World: I Want To Ride
20.  Riders World: I Want To Ride by CDV Software

Let's Ride: Horse Adventures
22.  Let's Ride: Horse Adventures by Valusoft
The list author says:
"I have played this a little more. It is fun.  Granted, a little juvinile and the graphis are bad.  But for four horse games, you can't beat the price.  Oh, on the mystery game, click the mouse to get the horse to jump."

Ellen Whitaker Horse Mystery
23.  Ellen Whitaker Horse Mystery by Gsp
The list author says:
"I bought this and it is just like Time to Ride:Saddles and Stables.  So if you have the one, don't buy this one.  I figured out that for older computers, if you click the "Turn off colourfilter" it will help with delay issues."
$18.99   Used & New from: $9.08
Time To Ride 2: Saddles And Stables
24.  Time To Ride 2: Saddles And Stables by DreamCatcher Games
The list author says:
"While the gameplay is fun, the challenges are very difficult.  I figured out how to play this without the delay lagging on my system, so it is much easier to play now."

Let's Ride: Riding Star
25.  Let's Ride: Riding Star by Valusoft
The list author says:
"This is fun but difficult.  Not for a beginner.  There is a version simply called Riding Star for Playstation 2 that is a little easier to play than this computer version."

My Horse and Me
26.  My Horse and Me by Atari
The list author says:
"This might be worth a look.  The graphics look promising.  This version is for Windows XP though, so I won't be able to play this until I upgrade.  It's also available for Wii."

"I've played a couple of these Barbie horse games.  They are very simple and straight forward.  The horses are easy to manipulate.  They would definitely appeal more to the younger horse-crazy girl."

Let's Ride: Corral Club
30.  Let's Ride: Corral Club by Value Software
The list author says:
"This game is fun, but it doesn't offer much to do.  You don't really take care of your horse, there aren't many color choices for the horse, and you only compete in barrel racing.  I beat this game in one hour."

Final Stretch-Horse Racing Sim
32.  Final Stretch-Horse Racing Sim by Global Star Software
The list author says:
"This is an okay game, but if I had the choice, I don't think I would have bought it.  It emphasizes betting and handicapping.  The play of the race seems unrealistic to me.  I would love it if they made a horse racing game that was about training and taking care of your horses instead of making money by betting on races."

34.  Let's Ride: Dreamer by Value Software

"I bought this game thinking it would be like the movie, Dreamer, but no, it has nothing to do with the movie except the cover.  It's very boring.  The jumping is very easy and the storyline is crawling.  Very disappointing."
