Even though the horse racing segment in the gaming industry might seem barren like a desert, some interesting picks promise hours of fun.

Yes, we are talking about racing games that directly simulate the real-world horse racing industry. But not the horse racing industry you are used to as a casual fan, no, no. We are talking about the industry where millions of things are happening, such as horse abilities, breeding, racing, stable management, trainers, jockeys, finances, and a lot more.

You heard that right. Horse-racing games feature all of these segments, plus fun and exciting gameplay that will make you feel like you’re racing at the Kentucky Derby.

Before we move on, please bear with us since most of the games will not be fresh releases, but still worth the play.

Rival Stars Horse Racing

Rival Stars Horse Racing follows in the history of horse games by being released under several titles with varied features but being essentially the same game.

Some of these distinctions are detailed below. I recommend the Desktop version since I prefer the one-time payment mechanism over microtransactions and waiting. Be warned that the console editions of the game (Phar Lap: Horse Racing Challenge) do not receive frequent updates and only feature a bare-bones version of the game, whereas the mobile and PC versions have received considerable changes.

However, it outperforms the standard riding games available in terms of quality. Building a stud farm, competing in equestrian races, and breeding horses are all part of the game.

Winning Post 9

This is a horse racing simulation game in which players may not only compete but also learn more about the sport by breeding, raising their in-game family, and managing all aspects of owning a stable.

Winning Post 9 also releases new editions yearly, improving their content and functionality to create a far better user experience. In reality, more than eight versions of the game were first released in 1993 by Koei Temco.

The Winning Post series is one of the oldest horse racing games in general, and for good reason.

This game’s scale is one reason it is famous among horse racing fans. It is uncommon to find a horse racing game that covers every detail on the track, and if you are familiar with horse racing, you know that there are several alternatives to cover.

Winning Post 9 has many fantastic horses to suit every playstyle and taste. The visuals are excellent, and the racetracks were meticulously designed.

The only thing that needs to be added is the betting aspect of horse racing. So, you can get hyped up by the game and further explore wagering tips and top picks at the link below: https://www.twinspires.com/edge/racing/wagering/

Horse Club Adventures

Horse Club Adventures is a multiplatform adventure game developed by Wild River Games and published by Schleich. The game’s premise and characters are inspired by the Schleich Horse Club toy brand, which is extremely popular in Germany and adjacent countries.



Wild River Games, formerly known to TMQ readers for the two Windstorm titles, has only recently built up the in-house development team responsible for Horse Club Adventures.

Although the game’s financial constraints are immediately apparent – there are few animations in the sequence, and conversation is in the form of unvoiced text boxes – it is clear that this narrative is portrayed with care. The arrangement is incredibly healthy and charming, with the purpose of simply letting you have fun with these kind individuals.

The game’s growth is based on a calendar structure: you have a number of missions accessible every day, after which you can freely travel the realm.

My Riding Stables: Life with Horses

Horse Tales: Emerald Valley Ranch is similar to My Riding Stables in that it revolves around rebuilding a derelict stud farm. However, it stands out for providing a large open environment to explore. Emerald Valley is indeed full of secrets waiting to be found.

The objective of the game is simple: acquire as many resources as possible to repair the family estate. Along the process, you’ll be able to breed a variety of horses and learn how to tame wild and shy mustangs.

Star Stable Online

Star Stable Online features ten thousand tasks to complete. As one might expect from a journey of this magnitude, the quality of the writing and presentation varies greatly.


Some quests feel grandiose, urgent, and essential, while others are more focused on daily life in horse-crazy Jorvik. Unfortunately, aside from the ever-present “race through these checkpoints,” far too many of the tasks’ mechanics boil down to the bog-standard “go there” and “pick up five of that.” The mechanisms vary from these principles in rare instances, such as when the game includes a couple of stealth missions.

It could be more flawless. There is a lot that could be done to improve it.

There are a lot of features that add value to the game.

Star Stable is a massive multiplayer online (MMO) game. This means that many people can compete, engage, and collaborate in a continuous virtual environment.
