My daughters ages 11 and 14 love horses.

Please recommend a fun game about horses, that is still in print.

Cheaper is better. Not too heavy.


Thanks

That looks fun. But I'm really looking for a horse theme.

Riding horses, taking care of horses, etc. My girls are horse-crazy

Horse racing - maybe. But I prefer something else. They're not interested in track racing.

So there is this: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgamefamily/7523/animals-horse...

Seems like a lot on the list are secondarily related to horses. (See, for example, Agricola) I thumbed through a bit of the list and there is a lot of racing and western stuff, so I'm not sure this helps, but it's a place to start!

My ten year old daughter has Horse-opoly. It's just like Monopoly, but it's all about horses. I'm not very fond of the game, but she really likes it.

Giro Galoppo is a racing game, but it's steeplechase - and the little horses are very cute.

There's Horse Show by Gamewright, although it isn't terribly well rated.

But they might love it all the same. It's the one I was going to suggest.

Must it be brand-new? I have our copy of Horse Show, still in excellent condition, that I could send you if you like (if you're in the US). Let me know if you're interested.

Perfect Stride is enjoyable for adults and the ages you list. This is the one you want - it's quite a fun game. Look at the Market listing under the game - it's sold by one of the designers, so it's still in print, and very reasonably priced.

May not be exactly what you're looking for but I hear Winner's Circle is getting a reprint. Quite a good game in general. Not too terribly heavy.

Despite the subject matter, it's a really complex CCG. Much more so than Magic: The Gathering - it's actually closer to Netrunner in terms of complexity.

I know you said track racing was out but what about one where you can trip each other up - The Really Nasty Horse Racing Game?

I've played Herd Your Horses with my daughter. More like a horse ranch adventure game.

Kids these days are smart though, right ?
