Since I was a little girl and I played 'Barbie Race and Ride' on the PS1, I have been obsessed with horses and horse games. I have been looking for an online game like Star Stable for a long LONG time, and then somehow I just stumbled across is a few weeks ago. It is an online RPG, based around a world full of horses where you get to ride, race and have fun. It's free to play up to level 4, but monthly subscriptions start from £4.95 a month right up to £49.95 for a lifetime subscription. Each subscription also entitles you to 100 weekly Star Coins (the in game currency), this can be used to buy new outfits, items and even horses.
Set on the island of Jorvik, your character is there to work at Moorland stables for the summer, and you are given your own horse to ride.
You get to take care of your horse daily, and this means they perform to the best of their ability in contests and races.
You help out the people of Jorvik by doing quests for them, this earns you XP and sometimes even exclusive items.
You can even save up star coins to buy several different breeds of horses, and you can have as many as you like! I've already got my eye on at least five new ones...
You can even become part of riding clubs, where you can meet people with similar interests (I was lucky enough to find an 18+ riding club within my first week of playing), or start your own club!
This game has quickly become my new favourite go to game. I can easily get lost in the world of Jorvik for a good few hours. I will warn you though the majority of people who play this game are younger girls, so you do have to be careful who you are talking to, you can seem like a bit of a creeper some time. Now I've met my riding club friends, I basically only talk to them, and I find it is much easier that way!
If you would like to check out the game then you can do so here, and please feel free to add me if you start playing!
