      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good on the whole for a light hearted game

      I bought this game on a bit of a whim really. I enjoyed playing it for the whole two days it took for me to complete, once all the tasks have been completed, you have competed in the final competition on your favorite horse, and you have the stud farm fully equipt with tack room, bed and breakfast etc you can do all the competitions again on all your other horses, i would not however recommend this game to a non horse loving person as it would be a little boring. One aspect i find annoying is how slowly the character moves around it seems to take forever to move from place to place especially if she is on foot. It is geared very much for the younger player but has some interest for horse lovers of any age. although 3 different horse boxes are available you can only ever have one of them at a time.

        unless you have a very young child i wouldnt bother

        I bought this game for my younger cousin, shes just started horse riding and loves it, so thought it would be an ideal gift to keep her occupied during the holidays.

        The game in itself is not challenging at all, the riding parts are simple, you just have to press the space bar when you are preparing to jump over something and the dresarge tasks consist of merely following arrows or flashes of colours on top of that i find the plot so predictable, and repetitive

        The graphics arent very good, which makes me think its not very well made, there also seems to be bugs within the game as sometimes the buildings will black out and you cant see them, i dont know if thats just her computer?

        All in all this whole game could be completed, start to finish in a few hours, however younger people who are really into horses seem to really enjoy it.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Overall, This Is A Very Good Game And I Would Recommend It To Anyone.

        Well, In My Opinion, Pippa Funnell Is A Very Good Game, As It Is Easy To Play, And Has A Gripping Story-Line.

        The Game Starts As You Find Out That Your Aunt Has Left You A Stud Farm In Her Will.
        So, You've Inherited A Stud Farm With One Horse, But, Two Of Your Aunt's Friends Are Still Staying There, So You Have Some Help Mucking Out Stables And Grooming Horses.
        But, You Are Expected To Organise A Horse Tournament At The Farm. The Thing Is, You Aren't The Best At Competing, So You Have To Learn How To Do Showjumping, Dressage, And Cross Country.
        As You Get Further On In The Game, You Enter Competitions To Win Money And Improvements For Your Farm.

        This Is A Very Good Game For Everyone ; Even If You Don't Go Horseriding. Even When The Adventure Is Over, You Can Keep On Managing Your Farm. This Game Is Fairly Easy To Get The Hang Of, So Anyone Wanting An Average Difficulty Game, And A Boredom Buster, This Is What You're Looking For.

          great game

          I loved this game! I'd reccomend it to any horse lover. The best part was seeing what horses you got. They're all gorgeous. Jumping was very simple and enjoyable although the jumps weren't as realistic as the other PF games. Dressage was easy but the scores work a bit weirdly. It was suprisingly challeneging. The best part is that you can continue training and competing once the game is over! Having completed the game myself i'm more than happy to help anyone who is stuck on anything. My email is haz_gurl@hotmail.co.uk.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            An excellent mystery game.

            I am willing to help anyone with the first pippa funnell game having completed it myself.

            to get the horse box keys you will need rope which you will find in the stable block connected to your house and a magnet which is on the tree near the well. You have to give the items to ROSE then you will retrive the key.

            if you are stuck on the quad bike part the only way you can get the driver off of his quad is by getting your horse infront of the quad twice. Your horse does not get hurt in this don't worry.

            Where is the river otter? the river otter is neer where you helped the peter with his sheep but you take the other route. You have four horses to find, they non of them are 'hidden' so that part is not too hard.

            To Find rose you need to go into a smaller woodland area of the track... when you get near her you will hear her shout. Peter should give you the directions to the misty forest but incase he dosent then you have to go to the x-c gate and follow the track the whole way down (dont turn into the corses though) and there should be a a gate to follow.

            To cut the wire of vincent blacklocks back garden area you will need plyers, you can find these in your stable block connected to your house.

            Once you are in vincent blacklocks house you will need a pass code for the secret room. you will find this on the piano. i suggest you write the down. the letters stand for the colours you have to press. they are already in oder.

            I hope you find this of some help. i will check back on if there are any questions i havnt answerd.

              This is an excellent game. It can be a bit difficult but is recommendable for any horse lover.

              This game is really cool! It is quite hard but I would recomend it to any horse lover. You play as Estelle, the next in line for the stud farm. In your aunt Patricia's will, she has assigned a certain number of objectives that must be fulfilled before you are a full owner. You rescue a little girl, catch a motorbike rider who let your horses out and even save the stud farm from a developer who wants to turn it into a chemical factory. You can organise and compete in your own competitions, build your own dressage, show jumping or cross-country coarse, saddlery and veterinary clinic. There are lots of different kinds of horses including: Paints, Thoroughbreds, Fresians, Akhal-Tekes and Appaloosas. Plants that improve your horse's performance our found on the banks of the River Otter and in the village there are lots of shops available to buy Clothes (both general and riding), Tack (Saddles, blankets, gaiters etc.), Food (horse food) and even brushes. There is a post office and general store also. In this game there are lots of different places to go to and things to do. I thoroughly enjoyit and I think you would too!

                Disadvantages

                Fun horsing around.

                I bought this game just for something to do while i was preggies with my second. Back pain meant that i had to give up my horse but not to worry Pippa Funnell has the answer.

                *** The game ***

                The game is set to a story board. Something fishy is going on in the village of Appleton and you have to get to the bottom of it. You play the heiress of your great Aunt, she has left you her stud farm which is in disrepair. You begin by working through tasks when you complete a task you can get new horses and get your building's fixed up.
                The game is very interactive and you can talk to practically any one who's wandering about. This is very useful as they quite often have some information that could help you complete your next task. You can go anywhere in the game either by foot or on horse back, wandering round the village is fun, you can go and buy new saddles, clothes, food and treats. Your solicitor will give you your next task which is usually geared towards a horse riding event after which you will get more goodies if you win.

                *** The horse ***

                There are loads of horses but you dont get to pick, you just get a new one in your stable if you complete a task. They are very realistic and need to be groomed, feed and mucked out, although if your like me and get bored of doing this then leave it to your groom, he'll do it but it will cost you.
                The horses have a point system for example, speed, stamina, jump height. When you win points be sure to check what you need for your next compatition and spread out your points accordingly.

                ***The Events ***

                You have a choice of showjumping, cross country and dressage, you must do well in all of them to win.
                Dressage is the hardest as you have to be quick on the keyboard to change your paces in time. Certain button's do certain things for example to piaffe press "p" when it is inticated on the dressage areana. More moves include extended and collected paces and salute. To change between paces use the arrow keys.
                Showjumping is tricky as some of the turns are tight and you need to line up. You also nee to check your speed, if you are going to fast or too slow your horse will refuse.
                Cross country is fun and you can have a good gallop but make sure you've got plenty of stamina points or your horse will tire and you will need to wait until his energy bar goes back up.

                As you get better the events get harder and you will have to train more. In the end even you will be up against Pippa herself.

                *** The woods ***

                Between your stud farm your training paddock and the village is a maze of woodlands. You can wander about for ages on your horse and explore, there is loads to see and it is great fun however it does begin to get a chore going back and forth to the village to do tasks, it's a long ride and if you dont have many stamina point it can take ages.

                *** Overall ***

                I did really enjoy this game despite being to old for it, i completed it in a few days so it wasnt that hard. The one area that bugged the hell out of me was chasing the quad bike. AHHH !!! I could have smashed the pc up but i looked on the internet and got plenty of tips. Cut all the corners!
                Herding the sheep was another frustration, the little bas... monkey's just would go where i wantered them to go.

                This is a great game for kids who like horses. Picking out the feet and grooming are very realistic. The dust comes off in clouds when you brush it and if you spray the hose to near his head he'll shake. You even have to sift through all the hay to pick out jobbies and put them in your wheelbarrow. Even after you've completed the game your free to keep training all your horse and do errands for you on farm vet.
                It is very good and i picked it up for £9.99 on the internet.

                Good luck when your up against Pippa and that damn quad bike.
