Welcome to Showhorse
Thanks for joining Showhorse, a highly addictive horse SIM site, where you can breed and show horses of a variety of breeds.
There are many different approaches you can take here, but first you should evaluate what you want to accomplish. Do you want to work with a less common breed, and strive to improve their quality? Or do you want to get into a highly popular breed and see if you can hold up against the tough competition? Maybe you want to specialize in just one breed, or maybe you want to try and gain points for all the breeds. It's completely up to you.
But before you jump in head first, you should take the time to read through both the Help Center and the FAQ, for they provide answers to many of the most common questions. Browse through the auction, that could probably give you an idea of what breeds are popular, and what the going price is for them. Look at the Rankings for the particular breed or breeds you are interested in, and maybe send the top ones a message. Many are willing to help out a new player.
By subscribing as a Premium player, you also have the option to breed your own foals, which opens up a whole other world of competitive play. You can then either start with your Starter horses and create your own line, or purchase horses that are already proven and start that way. Many people choose a combination of both.
Showhorse is all about strategy, so browse through, talk to some people, and most importantly, have fun!
