Player Reviews

Where do I begin? I have been playing ER since July 7th and I can't express in words how much I've enjoyed it. It has given me another world to escape to. I had horses for six years before I came to college a year and a half ago, and for awhile, I really missed them. It'd be a lie to say that I don't still miss them, but ER has given me something to fill that void for now. Also, the recent changes in my life have thrown me into a transitional period. When I felt like all of my life direction and goals were lost, ER gave me something to feel passionate about. Not to mention the genetics portion of ER prepared me for my Bio 181 lecture on heredity and genetics, so I already knew everything covered in class, with a few extra tid bits. ER is as real as you let it become, and if you're horse starved, it can become pretty real.

The Original Automated Genetics Based Horse Simulation

Actual Game Horse

Actual Game Horse-- refresh to see more!

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.
