Probably one of the better horse/pony role-play games available for the Wii.
It covers all of the usual horse care elements such as grooming (of which you have to do a lot!), feeding, mucking out etc before entering competitions. A real plus of the game is the range of breeds to choose from (7) and the ability to change coat colour etc. You can even change the music you ride to!
The training stages are pretty comprehensive and there's hacking options too, so the little girls likely to be playing the game are entering a pretty comprehensive world.
The 'photo album' is a cute feature and allows users to send snapshots of their game to other users, and show off their rosettes etc.
The competitions element allows users to play all three phases of eventing separately, as well as 'proper' eventing. There's all the usual bits here and the graphics are an improvement on other games.
Overall, a great game which stands apart from the others due to its choice and the very comprehensive range of the game. Great for horse-mad kids (and adults who should know better!)
