Couldnt they put this on the PS2 or PS3 or XBox and let me use an analog stick to steer the horse? When I tried to go left, the horse backed up and other troubles. They tried to simulate using reins to steer the horse, which was a good idea. But I dont think they actually tested it! The graphics are beautiful and they drew lovely horses, but the controls keep me from playing. Rent PS2 `Equestrian Challenge` or `Riding Star` instead.
My 5 year old daughter enjoyed the game; washing the horse, changing the colors, etc. She was unable to play the events however. The controls are difficult to learn. I had to compete in the events for her while she watched, which she did enjoy as well.
