Horsing Around the Track
Take the reins and have some fun with these virtual horse-racing games. Horse racing is one of the most ancient of all sports, and its basic premise – to see which animal moves fastest from point A to point B – remains relatively unchanged. Of course, over the centuries new and ever-changing obstacles have been introduced to challenge how the horse gets from start to finish. One of the most popular variations is, of course, jumping races. Horses tend to start small and build to larger jumps and greater distances as they get older. But in this series of virtual horse games, there is no need to wait and very little need to train – you can start playing right away.
In Stay the Distance Horse Racing, you must study the field, pick a horse and guide that horse to victory. Horse-riding games like Raceday put you in the saddle as you gallop your way to fame and fortune. If you prefer horse-jumping games, try Horsey Racing. Help your pony jump over obstacles and reach the finish line. Horse Show Jumping is even more difficult as you must guide your horse over all the jumps before the clock runs out. But it takes more than a great field game to breed a racehorse. In Horse Jumping 2 you can't ride your virtual horse if you don't take care of him.
More interested in buying than riding? Then Racehorse Tycoon is for you. Buy a horse, hire jockeys and trainers, win races, and bet on your pony to win! In Horse Rancher, you've got to feed your steeds for speed if you want to end up with a barn full of racing beauties.
This collection has more unorthodox takes on horse-riding games, too. Play Horse Stable Kissing, where smooching on the job is strictly prohibited – so make sure the boss doesn't see you locking lips with another stablehand. If you aren't into secret romances and Harlequin novel plotlines, then maybe you are into heavy metal. Or robots. Or both? Robot Unicorn Attack: Heavy Metal is as weird and wonderful as it sounds. Join a mighty steed blazing through a dark world filled with chaos, fire, and some rad metal music.
So get riding, jumping, or racing to these games today.
