I rented this game for my 7 year old niece, who is into horses and 4H, to try. It was too difficult for her, so I tried it. The controls are good in theory, but never really worked right for us. She has been playing it for three weeks, and it never got ant easier for her. I thought this would be a perfect game for her to enjoy, i was wrong this is to hard for me, let alone my niece. Hopefully they will come out with a kids game that is easy to work, so they can enjoy the Wii, and all you can do with the controls
I gave it this rate because some of the instructions in the game were not clear to me, so I didn't get it at first. Then I figured it out and had fun. Well, I rented this game and completely loved it! One of my lifetime wishes since I was 3 years old was to have horse riding lessons. This game gave me a taste of riding. You get to ride you horse, brush it, do jumping lessons. It is even 2 player! My sisters and I had a lot of fun playing this game, and it was really detailed. Everything was life-like, even the mini-games! The only part I found frustrating was the menu and how to control your horse, but once you figure that out it is really easy! From walking your horse around a stable to doing elite jumping competitions, you really learn how to ride a horse. I hope you enjoy it!
