Player Reviews

There is no game on the net I would rather play than this one. Until perhaps SHG comes out (this games successor!) I've signed up to other games before but they can never hold my attention. This game was the first one that did. I never thought I would pay money for online game when I first joined, but the game, the community and the challanges got me so hooked that I just had to upgrade. I now have 2 blue ribbon ranches and it's still not really enough! The genetics are mind blowingly realistic, as is everything else! Breeding and pairing horses to create a superior foal is one of my favourite aspects of the game. Waking up to find little foals I have planned carefully on my ranch page is a joy. I love trying to get the rarer colours or breeding for certain traits to get a fantastic show horse. The show scene is competitive but not impossible. There are futurities, and shows for world champions with amazing ingame rewards. With each champion you breed/show you earn personal points which you can trade for game items worth -real- money. This is the kind of game you can really make your own. It's up to you where you go with your ranch. If, like me, you always dreamed of owning a stables and breeding horses as a child this game is no doubt for you! The community is helpful and safe and the Admins and mods are active, always striving to keep it safer for all. The fact that you are playing/working with other real people also makes it ten times better than any horse software/computer games you could buy. I have made some great friends here. If you want a game with depth, that involves thought to succeed in, a game with an immense amount of fantastic images, a game that is updated as discoveries are made in the real world, a game that is going somewhere then try ER.

The Original Automated Genetics Based Horse Simulation

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.
