Here, there are horses and ponies in a variety of different colors, all based on realistic breeds of horses, and each horse has a young and adult version of itself to add to the imagery. To play the game, simply follow along with the little white monkey Ow, who provides some of the best tutorials in the horse-game genre! These tutorials are quest-based, which means that they feel like a game, even though you’re learning how to take care of your horse!


As you work with your horse, you’ll have to hold down a job so you can afford his or her keep. Then, work to become the best of the best in training, racing, or breeding! In addition to unique color combinations and looks, of which you can create your own once you’re far enough along in the game, Howrse also breeds by ability, with different horses being good at specific gaits or tricks than others.
