Description

Mary King's Riding Star is a managerial simulation set in the equestrian sports business. The game focuses in the athletic part, this means there are no finances to manage and the goal of the game is to win as many championships as possible in the events dressage, cross country and showjumping.

To achieve this goal the player has to "manage" his horse by using the training grounds to improve the horses's skills. The player also has to manually clean the stall and feed and groom the horse. The championships are shown in a isometric perspective with spoken commentary. There are options to personalize the game, e.g. by naming the horse and choose its color.

The game is largely based on the original 1998 Riding Star and was created in cooperation with its developer Blue Tongue.

Screenshots

Mary King's Riding Star Windows The start of a Championship Season. In the first screen the player gets the option to load an existing game, there isn't one here so it's straight in to a new game
Mary King's Riding Star Windows The start of a training session. The action keys are shown on the lower right. The objective is to  keep going round the arena trying to make all the jumps cleanly. There's no apparent time limit.
Mary King's Riding Star Windows .. its not far enough to build up speed so its useful that the horse & rider can deviate from the planned track to get a better run up
Mary King's Riding Star Windows Here we are in the stable yard. The horse's condition, health, thirst, etc is shown in the panel on the right. Looks OK so far
