Player Reviews

ER is the best realistic horse game on the Internet. I played it once and I was hooked! I had tried several other games, but none of them even came close to Equine Ranch. It has given me a better understanding of genetics, money and time management, long term planning, and it is just an all around fun game. Also, all the people here are very nice and extremely friendly. Although the Internet can be a dangerous place, I feel safer when I'm here. I find myself going to this site every single time I have a chance to get on the computer!

The Original Automated Genetics Based Horse Simulation

Other horse games claim to be realistic.

We actually are.

Equine-Ranch is a horse game that offers you the opportunity to participate in the horse hobby virtually. E-R is a leader in complexity, challenge, and realism. Unlike most horse games where players can dominate simply by having either extensive time or money to invest, reaching the top on E-R takes thinking and skill.

E-R horses are designed to function like real horses. They possess simulated DNA that is inherited from their parents, making them all highly individual. These inherited genetics determine their potential and it takes training, grooming, and exercise to reach it. They also have the simulated ability to learn from their training sessions.

E-R is an open concept sandbox environment. Enjoy the freedom to set your own goals and pursue them in your own fashion. While we provide the environment, you must provide the goals you wish to achieve, and the ambition, motivation, and desire to do so.

Also, unlike many other horse games that stifle player experience, E-R does not force you into playing a certain way, nor will it lead you to the "correct answer." Instead, you will face the same choices you would in real life-- and as in real life, experience the negative and positive outcomes of each choice.
