In a DS game aimed squarely at the market populated almost entirely by young girls, Ellen Whitaker's Horse Life enables young ladies to live out their horse-related fantasies in a handheld style. There are three main elements to the gameplay: Travel, Competition and My Studfarm.
Horse Life enables you to travel around the world, to three different continents - Europe, America and Africa - and have some of the most excellent equine experiences. Your horse and your friends will travel with you, and there are many missions and challenges to undertake. In Competition, there are four championships to choose from: Dressage, Jumping, Cross Country and Eventing, the latter being all three in one. My Studfarm is actually run by your grandfather and is the main zone in the game. It is from here that you access all the activities and locations that will hopefully make you a future champion.
