How to play
To win a horse race you have to overtake everyone by answering the math questions as quickly as possible. The faster you answer, the faster your horse runs. After a series of math questions a set of jumps will appear. Click the Jump button as you reach each obstacle. The race will alternate between math questions and jumps.
The stable is the place to keep your horse in good health and to make sure it has enough energy. You can take care of your horse with sponges, grooming and water after a tournament race. Click on the shower head and move it over your horse then click on the towel to dry her off!
It’s time to choose the horse you want to ride! When you decide on a horse click Choose. You’ll be taken to a practice race that will show you how the game is played.
Once you’ve named your horse you have to feed her! You’ll be asked to shop for food to feed your horse. After all—she’ll need plenty of energy to run in the races! A white gloved hand will lead you through the shop. Just click on what it points to.
Selecting Race allows you to practice the multiplication tables one by one. Choose the times table you want to practice and click start. A timer will count down 3-2-1 to the start the race, so be ready!
