Now we have Equestriad 2001 for the Playstation One. I am now huge Horse fan but if I were to choose comething horse-esque to enjoy, it would be racing, at least that way you can have a bet and a genuine interest in the 'sport'. But this game here isn't racing, instead it's showjumping, yes apparently it is a sport and not only for 10 year old girls, I gave it a whirl and heres what I found. Not even a game about it can be interesting.
Graphics - The only good thing about this game is probably the presentation, although they're nothing to write home about they also look quite realistic for the format that it's on. 6/10
Gameplay - Horrible, really slow and it doesn't feel like the characters react to what you are asking it to do, the timing of jumps for example is really awkward 4/10
Sound - Theres actual commentary from two 'experts'. The audio apart from that is pretty non existant but I suppose fans may like the commentators. 5/10
Longevity - There are 20 events to choose from on this so on the off chance you do like it I guess theres stuff to come back for. 6/10
Overall - I wouldn't recommend it unless you're little girl loves showjumping and even then it's no guarantee she would like this 4/10
