This game wouldn't be half bad if the creators made the controls for training the foals a little easier like useing the arrow pad keys to move the foal closer and away from you instead of having to whip the controler around to get the foal to move. Over all I find the game really fun and enjoyable!

This game moves much too slow for my taste. I tried the jumping part before I got into the story part of the game and once again the controls were hard to use. I found the controls to be worse than My Horse and Me. I would love a horse game for the Wii where the controls are easier to use. My character either kept running all the time or running into a wall as I was having a difficult time figuring out how to control her. At least in My Horse and Me you got to ride right away where as this game you must have to earned credits cleaning hooves or something. You always have to buy stuff which to me is no fun as it's based on the credits you earn. So back in the mail this game goes. I can't even see how a little girl is going to control the horse, etc. as an adult myself I'm having issues with it.

Get ready to ride and run a business. In Gallop and Ride, you inherit a run-down riding facility and you are asked to restore it to its former glory. Combining the fun of riding a beautiful horse and the logical thinking of an entrepreneur, this game is a wonderful and fun game. There are no time limits, so take your time and relax and just have fun. The graphics are beautiful and the riding areas are a work of art! As you ride, you search for golden horseshoes that give bonus points for special items. You

train foals for clients and massage horses for clients to earn money. Once you prepare the guest house, guests will come to ride the horses and enjoy the beauty. The controls are easy and can be switched to either use the remote and nunchuk as reins or to use the control stick to steer. You can play as either male or female and there are many clothes and styles to choose from. There are three horse breeds with many color combinations to create your dream horse! The only downside is that you must buy horse

feed by each individual serving rather than a bag of feed with many servings. All in all, anyone who likes horses and would like to see what it's like to run a riding facility will enjoy this game. Now, go riding and have fun!
