If it weren't for the IAP it would be good

This game is really fun and easy, but it is really hard to earn more than 2,000 coins in the game. Also almost everything in the game MUST be purchased with gems, or a crazy amount of coins. Only 3 horse breeds are available for purchase with coins, the rest need gems which must be bought with real money. It is a detailed game with fun gameplay but it gets boring quick unless you purchase gems. Fun, but very pushy in IAP.

This title has:

Easy to play/use
Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (6 ):

For anyone who's dreamed of owning their own horse, MY HORSE offers a glimpse into the world of stables and show-jumping. The app boasts high production values, and the level of realism and detail on the horses is impressive. But while there's ostensibly plenty to do, it's a shame that more of it isn't actually interactive. It's disappointing that some of the tasks that sound quite fun -- like renting your horse to the local fair to give rides to kids -- are only shown as timers that tick down before you can claim the reward, rather than a mini-game or animations in their own right. Kids might also be tempted to spend real-world money on perks like special saddles and riding gear, and to speed up the game to avoid waiting hours for tasks to get completed.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
