Gather your saddle and tack and mount up for Artplants’ Riding Club Championships! In this Free to Play equestrian inspired sports game, you are given the role of rider. Coming with this title are all of the bells and whistles you might expect, such as brushes and riding gear – and of course an equine companion of your very own! Within the world of Riding Club Championships there are more than enough activities to keep both you and your horse busy, such as trial courses to test your horses speed and agility, an engaging online mode in which to both compete and share, as well as a fairly deep customization system for both you the rider, as well as for your animal companion.

The brunt of the actual gameplay is found within horse shows. These shows allow you and your equine friend to compete in show jumping, barrel racing, pole bending, and agility trials. Each of these different game modes test a separate aspect of your horse’s’ ability level, and comes complete with a global leaderboard as well as a way to directly match your runs up to those runs of a competing rider. One of the finer aspects of this game, and in many people’s opinion the one thing that saves this game from itself, is the fact that you are able to not only able to customize your own trial arenas to play in and share with others – but you are also able to explore what other riders have been kind enough to share with you. This means that contrary to where as in the past there may not have been enough courses to keep the game fresh and entertaining, now there is always something new to discover – or even to create for yourself!

Riding Club Championships boasts a die hard loyal fan community, and as such, has become an incredibly social game for those who have immersed themselves within it. Sporting not only open chat rooms for players to connect and discuss, but also a club system – allowing for like minded players to band together in order to enhance each others gaming experience. This interaction, along with the leaderboards and competitive shows, can make for a surprisingly rich, and downright wholesome multiplayer experience.

One thing Riding Club Championship has always had going for it is the customization. So many people out there would love to care for a horse of their own, but for whatever reason, be it geographical of monetarial, they are unable to do so. Riding Club Championship works to offer those folks out there who love horses, but who are without the means to acquire one, to get a chance to experience just a taste of what it would be like to ride, dress up, and train a horse of their very own. With a large selection of horse breeds, coat pattern styles, and outfit variants , Riding Club Championships allows you a great deal of freedom in deciding how you want your horse and riding apparel to be presented to the world at large.

Riding Club Championships has a lot going for it, especially if you are a true horse lover. That being said, there have been issues with Artplay in the past regarding monetization, and because of this the game has adopted a highly Pay to Win atmosphere. The silver lining is that this game is, at its heart, just mean to be a fun time – but if you do want to hit those high ranks on the leaderboards, expect to pay.

All said and done Riding Club Championships is a lighthearted horse ownership simulator that does what it is trying to do, and gets it done well. You have a horse, you ride a horse, you care for a horse. Simple. If you’re on the fence about this one I can help you out. Just ask yourself this question – just exactly how much do I love horses? If that answer is, well, a whole lot.. Then Riding Club Championships is probably a good fit for you.
