I only bought a DS a few days ago and this was the first game that I bought after seeing screenshots from it online. It's one the best video games that I've ever played (my pippa funnell collection for the pc comes close second)
The game starts off where you pick your fave breed of horse and colour from the options. A foal is born and you name it. You bring the horse on by training it, taking it for rides and entering shows. everytime you get placed in a show you earn 'prestige' points and earn tokens which you can use to buy items in the tack shop like feed, clothes etc. you take 'diplomas' which allows you to unlock more trails in the forest, more music and more items in the tack shop.
the graphics are amazing and so life like - some games I've played the graphics were rubbish and rather low quality.
I've been playing this game a few days now and I love it. I have 3 other games for my DS (one of which is pippa funnell) but always find myself switching back to this one. This is the best purchase I've made so far.
I think if you're into horses this is the game to buy. and/or if you liked the pippa funnell games then this is a nice addition to your horsey game collection. It's well worth every penny =] It's very addicting.
I'm chomping at the bit in the hope they release a second game.
