    |  I - Introduction & Overview  |
    This game is basically a Nintendogs style game but for horses.
    This title is misleading. This is not a little kid game. It has a lot of depth
    and you won’t finish the game quickly. At 270 hours logged, I still had four 
    more wildlife animals to find and lots more of the game goals to complete.
    It helps a lot to get the Luck Set accessories and put them on your horse
    to get the last wildlife animals and coins.
    There are really no ponies in this game either. You start by purchasing a 
    full grown horse that is ready to ride and then work on strengthening the
    horse for trail rides, photographing wildlife, and horse races. The horses 
    were done very well. There are a lot of nice looking horses to pick from and
    a lot to do with the horses throughout the whole game. 
    If you want to play only a little each day, then just get one horse. If you 
    want to play 1-3 hours a day then get 3 horses. You can adjust how long you
    play by how many trails and activities you do with your horse(s) each day.
    You could even play more than 3 hours per day if you do extra things with
    your 3 horses.
    The game plays very well in all aspects. I do wish you could get money when
    you retire a horse to a career. I would rate this game a solid 9.5 out of 10.
    You can choose what language to play this game. Languages include: English,
    French, Italian, Dutch, Spanish, and Norwegian.
    Graphics are good and very real-life. Trails include swamps, farms, mountains,
    trails by fields, and others. Use stylus to swing around for all camera views.
    Buying a horse
    You will start off by purchasing a horse. You begin with 230 coins. There are
    six horse breeds plus a custom design-your-own horse to choose from. Each
    breed of horse will present you with 3 horses to choose from. The 3 horses 
    will also change colors or markings so check back off and on to see “new”
    ones. The custom create-a-horse lets you choose all markings and body features
    from all the breeds. You can mix just about anything. After you name your
    horse he/she is put into the stable. 
    In this game you take care of up to three horses at a time and take them on
    trail rides to find wildlife animals, shells, and coins. There will also be
    a few randomly scattered blue boxes to find that have various items in them.
    To find a box, click on it with your stylus. When you see an animal, click on
    it with your stylus to take a picture of it. Some are out easy to see and some
    you won’t see but will be behind trees or other objects. Shells and coins will
    sometimes get stuck in their hoof for you to pick out and add to collections.
    You will also be collecting sets of horse equipment for your horse to wear
    such as saddles, blankets, bridles, and others. This game has a good assortment
    of accessories. Most of these you can buy at the store when they come available
    or if you are lucky you can find them in blue boxes on the trail. You can also
    design up to 3 custom designed blankets and 3 custom designed quartermarks.
    You will need to strengthen each horse you purchase (or design) to enable them 
    to open up more riding trails and be strong to win in the horse races. Most
    trails will require that you find small black gates while riding trails.
    Galloping your horse on trails will make it stronger faster but many animals
    that usually would be out will not appear.
    You will need to brush, wash, and maintain your horse’s hoofs. You will need to
    feed your horses their favorite food. If your horse gets sick, you will also 
    need to have items to cure the sickness. Care items, medicines, various food, 
    and wearable horse items are for sale at the store. Move your horse from the 
    field to the stable to wash/brush/do hoof. Move your horse to the field to 
    cure illnesses and feed them a treat. Horses will also perform tricks for you 
    while they are in the field if they are clean and not to tired.
    Earning money is a challenge. Each day one of the trails will have a star on 
    it (only one per day even if you own more than one horse). Take your horse on 
    this trail. You will be told what task needs to be done and what amount of 
    money you will receive. Each day you can also do three chores for a varying 
    amount of money. The blue boxes you see along trails may have a little money 
    in them. The best way to get money is to finish a set of wildlife and also 
    to finish collecting a set of coins and shells (you may get money or items).
    There is a trick to getting more money after you donate a horse. Do all your 
    chores and go back and get your payment for the day. If one of the chores was 
    a chore for the horse you are donating then donate the horse. Now a new chore 
    slot for each chore relating to the donated horse has opened up in the daily 
    chores because the horse is no longer in the game. Finish the new chores and 
    go back and receive more payment. You can repeat this again if you are donating
    another horse and have chores related to that horse.
    After you purchase (or design a custom horse), you may also donate that horse to
    the Pony Club (races) at any time. You will not have your horse again and you 
    will not get any money. This does open up a slot to purchase or design another 
    horse and helps complete your donate horse game goal. Four donated horses 
    will get you all four medals in this goal (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Bonus). You can
    not donate your horse if you only have one. The donated horse may or may not
    show up as one of the other horses on the race track when you race one of your
    other horses.
    Eventually, you will be able to retire your horse. You will need to have 
    obtained the complete Speed Set (to win all races), the complete Style Set (to
    get level five style rankings), and have level five fitness (by opening up all
    the trail rides with that horse). You will then be given the option of 
    retiring your horse into one of four careers. The careers are: Police Pony, 
    Show Jumping Championship Pony, Hollywood Pony, and Circus Pony. You won’t 
    see your horse again and you won’t receive any money. This does open up 
    another slot to purchase another horse and gains a medal in the retire horse 
    game goal. Four retired horses will get you all four medals in this goal.

    Wildlife photos in the game and those on the game icons are hard to color
    match. Since the line sets are displayed on the top screen there is no
    way to click on them to read their names. Below is a decent attempt to 
    match the actual wildlife in the game with the exact location of the 
    same wildlife displayed in line set icons. I have used actual names &
    colors of the wildlife in the game over the colors in the icons. The birds
    were particularly hard so you may see some names missing and just the
    description of the display icon. If you see a name with info then it is
    accurate but I may have placed it at the end of that list with --- but
    am unsure of where it fits in the icon display. 
    Summary: All names and info relating to the name is correct but may not
    be in the same exact display line set order.
    Be assured that if you are looking for a specific wildlife animal that
    the name, location and all other info listed will be correct.
    Note that games may vary and the same animal will appear in more than one
    location. This info is listed as appeared in my particular game. I also 
    verified and compared wildlife randomness with others that were also 
    playing the game to be as accurate as possible. Remember that it is not
    possible to see all wildlife at the beginning of the game as they are
    unlocked as you progress through the game. Animals usually travel
    along designated paths and appear one place in the morning and another
    place later in the day or night. Some animals only appear at a certain
    time. Be patient and keep tapping all over as you ride. If the screen
    starts to zoom in then don’t move your stylus and you will usually get
    the picture but not always. Some animals are out in the open to see and
    some are hiding behind objects and will only be photographed by touching
    that object. If you see a tree shaking, wait till you get close and then
    touch it. It may be a bird or an insect. Click the animal fast. Use your
    camera angles all around. Birds can be high in the air or low on the 
    ground and can suddenly appear zooming beside you coming from the front
    or the back. Craning the view behind you on each side can get you some
    animals that sneak past and behind you but limits seeing an animal
    that may have passed you directly in front of you on the trail. Ride
    trails more than once a day because the trail resets every time you
    start riding it. Trails can also change due to the different horses
    and what accessories the horse is wearing. Small blue boxes can be
    anywhere - in the air, hidden in trees, tops of buildings, over edges.
    Good Luck and have fun!

      Total collections: 24
      These coins are for collections and are not spent. 
      The coins you spend come from your daily chores, doing sets, & blue boxes.
        Four lines of four coins each = 4 sets
        First Line Set: dark gray/antique coins
        Second Line Set: yellow/gold coins
        Third Line Set: light gray/silver coins
        Fourth Line Set: brown/copper coins
        Four lines of four shells each = 4 sets
        First Line Set: small combo shells
        Second Line Set: fan style shells
        Third Line Set: conch style shells
        Fourth Line Set: variety shells
    Note: You are not told the names of the coins and shells. I am not putting 
    detailed descriptions of the coins and shells because of this plus the fact 
    that you can see the silhouette design of each if you look in the collections. 
    They are randomly found on the hoofs of your horses. You will only clean one 
    hoof of each animal after riding the horse on trails or in races. Brush off 
    any mud. You may see only rocks/stones or if you are lucky, you will see a 
    coin or a shell. Use the pick to pick off the rocks, coins, and shells. Any 
    coins and shells will go directly into your collection with a comment 
    announcing you have found a rare coin or shell if found. Always pick off all 
    rocks/stones until the hoof sparkles - some coins look like stones. You don’t 
    have to care for the hooves after each ride but you could if you wanted 
    (usually 3-4 trail rides is good). Be sure to care for hoofs and make sure 
    your horse is clean before you put it back in the field for the night. It does 
    seem that your horse will pick up more rare coins/shells if you gallop at least
    some on a trail but I have still found a lot while just walking. You don’t have
    to gallop the whole trail unless you want to. When you complete a set you may 
    be given money or a nice item. It is definitely worth it to complete all sets. 
    It will be hard to get the last coins but just keep riding continually and a 
    lot. I usually take each horse on every open trail it has unlocked each day 
    (3 horses = 3 times on each trail per day) but you can go at your own pace.
    | Stable: |
    Pick one of three slots for the horse you want to work with in the stable.
    If the slots are all blank, you must go to the field and move a pony into the
    This takes you to the trail rides, Pony Races, and Store Icons which have 
    already been covered.
    This lets you accessorize your pony with items you have bought or that have
    been given to you. Each accessory category lets you view accessories on your
    horse before you choose them. Remember this will not be a full list unless you
    have bought and been given every accessory. Accessories may be listed by the
    order in which you bought or received them. 
    You may also create up to three custom blankets and three custom quartermarks
    for free using the Editor under the custom blanket & quartermark options.
    Accessories may be given to you when you complete any set, find them randomly 
    in a blue box, or on very rare occasions get them by completing daily trail 
    tasks. When you are further into the game you may get a pink saddle from 
    clicking on a red tractor while trail-riding.
    Pony Care
    Most activities you do will give hints & tips on the top screen of your DS as
    you do them. This section is no different. Pay attention to the tips given and
    follow the directions. Be sure to brush slow and with the hair. Complete each
    activity until you see sparkles. Watch your horse’s body signs. When done, check
    the Info Icon and look at the brush slider bar - it is best if it is all the way
    to the right which means your horse is clean.
    If you are in washing mode and an item enlarges & dings but is not colored in
    then it means that you are out of that supply and need to go buy some. You can
    immediately go back to the stable icon and choose ride and go visit the store
    to buy that item. When you get back into the washing mode again it will begin
    where you left off but the dinging item should be colored in now providing that
    you bought the right supply. If items are colored but don’t ding & enlarge then
    it means that you do not need to perform that task this time. For example, if 
    you go into washing mode with a brushed only horse then the shampoo will ding
    and then the conditioner will ding but the flybot will not ding unless your
    horse has flybot.
    You usually start out the day riding your pony (trail task & a few trails) and
    then come back to the stable. Care for hoofs and groom horse and then ride
    another few trails and care for hoofs and groom horse again. Repeat this process
    until you want to stop or the horse is tired (frown face slider bar). Then
    bring your horse back to the stable and care for hoofs, groom, and then wash,
    condition and treat any needs. The horse should be clean and tired now. Move 
    the horse to the field and feed, treat any flu or stomach illness, and pet
    horse to raise friendship if needed.
    You can ride a tired horse but it increases bad health slowly. It is better to
    have more than one horse if the first horse is always tired.
    Body Signs:
    Good - horse turns head towards you, horse squints or closes eyes
    Bad - horse stomps, rears, shows teeth, flicks tail a lot, shakes head
      Brush main body
      Brush mane
      Brush tail
      No equipment to buy.
      Shampoo your horse
      Condition your horse
      Flybot treat your horse
      Buy shampoo and conditioner daily for each horse.
      Buy flybot treatment for each horse as needed.
    Hoof Care:
      Brush mud off hoof
      Pick rocks/stones off hoof
      Treat any sores
      Buy hoof ointment if needed for each horse at store.
    Move To Field
    This will move your pony from the stable to the field. The field is where you 
    should keep your pony overnight or for long periods of time. It is important
    to have your pony clean (brushed, washed, & hoof care) before you move them to
    the field. If they are not cared for and clean they will get sick. If any pony
    is sick in the field it will quickly spread to the rest of the ponies in the
    field. Sickness left untreated will get worse quickly. It costs a lot of money
    to cure horses so keep them clean - unless you are trying to quickly get the
    Pony Nurse game goal medals - but be prepared to spend a lot on medicines.
    Click on the name of pony to check its stats or do field related activities
    with the horse.
    Call Over:
    The field is also where you give medicines, feed your horse, increase friendship
    with your horse, and watch them in the field. Click the Call Over Icon to begin.
    Feeding your horse may or may not be a challenge. A horse may not eat if it is 
    unhappy. Sometimes the horse eats the food but not quickly enough. The food will
    disappear and you will get hearts around your horse but it will not count as 
    being feed and will actually lose friendship with you. To make sure the horse
    is really feed you need to quickly get its favorite food out of the bag on the
    right(after you called horse over) and put it near its muzzle. The horse will
    hopefully raise its muzzle and start eating the food. If the horse gets done
    AND YOU SEE THE HAND ICON again before the hearts appear then it should have
    counted as being feed. It may take a little to do it quick enough but just keep
    trying. No food will be lost if it didn’t work but the friendship probably 
    went down so just pet the pony successfully a few times to bring the friendship
    back up. The horse’s favorite food is shown next to their name in the Info Icon.
    Medicines (flu & stomach) are given the same way as feeding favorite food but
    will come from the left bag and are easier to give. All medicine and food need
    to be bought at the store.
    Petting your pony will increase friendship. Call the horse over and place the 
    stylus next to but not on the pony’s head. Move slowly if it is a new or shy
    horse. Move the stylus between the horse’s eyes and ears and move with your hand
    with the movement of the head of the horse. Soon you should see hearts float up
    from around the horse. If they are not broken hearts then you did it right. You
    may also pet the neck. Touch other areas on the horse to make it turn slightly 
    to the left or right. When your horse decides to go back to the field it will
    stretch its head low to you &/or bow to you and then trot off if it likes you.
    If the friendship is low it may just trot off. You can repeat petting as many
    times in a row that you want. Use the hearts slider bar in the Info Icon to 
    check friendship levels - best if it is all the way to full heart on right.
    Perform Trick:
    Ponies will perform tricks in the field if they are clean, happy, and not tired.
    The more fitness, style, and speed your pony has then the more advanced tricks 
    your pony will perform. Tricks don’t appear to make the pony tired.
