The story of Howrse is an amazing one with over six million people playing it, plus, it has the approval of Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum. All you have to do is sign up and select a horse or pony and give it a name. Howrse is a horse breeding program that allows a player to own a palomino, paint, or a thoroughbred with a racing background.

It gives the players a chance to see how to take care of a horse – that is, how to bred, raise, and manage a horse breed. The horses are judge by a panel of stars and they can also be judged with a BLUP, which means Best Linear Unbiased Prediction. The BLUPs are based on the genetics of the horse, so you should think about what type of horse you’re breeding.


They have a layout that is easy to follow, and is user friendly and it works along the logic of real life horse breeding.  Starting out is kind of slow, but after a couple of days, you’ll have a horse that is growing and needs to be taken care of or you might lose it. It’s kind of like having a computer pet dog or cat; they need care and attention if they are going to grow.

If you need help you can find it on almost every page. Howrse makes it easy to find your way around and if you need help, it’s easy to find it on the page. You can make money, virtual money, that is, with the number of horses you have, how you manage them, and their bloodline. Each day progresses until you start making real money with them. It takes a couple of hours a day, but the most fun is when you start managing them.


When you first sign up you’re taken to an area that shows you how to correctly feed, groom, graze, and feed your horse. These are quests you can use as rewards with carrots, turnips and age point you can spend on your own personal horse. When you spend the points, it makes your horse older and allows it to do more things like learning to trot, run, and gallop, among other things.

You can move your friend to stables, but you have to find a job to pay the rent, food and housing, just to name a few things that need to be done if the horse will be stabled. You can name the horse, make it grow; teach it new tricks, and many other things as your horse grows to adulthood. You can even show it or sell it to the highest bidder.
