Isabell Werth: Reitsport - German title
During the show jumping championships the player needs to balance the speed, the moving directions, the jumping-off points and the balance of the horse. This is performed with a few keys on the keyboard. The dressage is similar to rhythm games: the player needs to press respectively hold the correct buttons which are floating onto the screen. The eventing championships has elements from show jumping and dressage and the player also needs to look after the horse's stamina.
All championships are influenced by the horse's character stats and personality, e.g. a shy and nervous horse tends to slow down before an obstacle. During the career mode the player can participate in training sessions and, if successful, improve the character stats. If the training fails this influences the horse's morale in a negative way. Besides the career the player can also ride in single tournaments. The game also features an extensive tutorial for every discipline which introduces every aspect in different exercises and needs to be beaten before starting a career or single tournament.
