I have played many horse-riding games. Some were moderate. Some were good. Only one was really wonderful. This is NOT the wonderful one. This is the worst ever! This is even worse than old ones that were made for the original PlayStation (old). First, I am so incredibly sick of the riding tutors on all these games being elderly men! That is age discrimination and gender bias! Give me a tutor that is middle age (45 to 50) and a woman! What IS IT with these (bleep)ing old men on these games!? STOP IT!!!! I am so glad I rented and did not buy this. Second, this game had NO customizing options for the rider. She was a blonde girl. I am a brunette. Hello!? What the (blank) is wrong with the developers of these games? Why are they all so sexist? Why do they think only men can teach me to ride a horse? Finally, the trail rides here were awful. You cannot just ride where you want. It was just a trail that the horse followed as you controlled its speed. You could guide the horse a bit left or right, but you could not really go anywhere.
The graphics were pretty. That's the only nice thing I can say of this.
Finally, quit the ridiculous story cutscenes! Just let me ride and compete! We don't need stupid stories!!
I recommend to horse-lovers to play Gallop and Ride! That one is the one wonderful horse game that I played and later bought. Now, if you will excuse me, I am going to play that again right now.
