Several questions

Postby RyuB » Fri Jun 01, 2012 11:18 pm

Do the riders advance the way the horses do, or will I always be able to use my level 1 riders with my level 1 horses?

What do I do next? I've got what I consider nice starter horses, nice starter riders (I noticed varieties in skills so I hired and fired until I found ones with higher numbers, I hope that was a wise, if expensive, thing to do), I've carefully decided which horse will do best in which event, and matched them with a Rider for each event. I've entered each horse in an event. What should be the next couple of things in my agenda?


Do riders specialize the way horses do? Didn't I see something about hiring a specialist that trained horse or riders faster? Do different breeds do better in certain disciplines?

What are store credits?

And if you can answer all these, can you tell me where my kleptomaniac dog put my computer mouse? (brownie points for this one)`

p.s. Do you know how to tell if it was the bull that won, or the cowboy that won? (riddle)

Schoolmaster, that's the word I was looking for. Is he worth it, how much does he cost, how does it work.

And why different pastures? And an arena too?

Riders never change levels
Depends on the horse do you have a link to him?
Also your mouse is hidden behind the computer or on the floor HAHA

You were right about the mouse, and I'm sure I looked there several times, but just to make you laugh I looked again and there the little fink was!

Can I give you a link to my stables, would that work, and can you see my riders & tell me if they are worth keeping even though it will cost extra?

This is not right, Holly! Riders train up the same way, horses do.


Every monday, you can train all your horses ( with assigned riders ) and all your riders in the training center.
Both, horses and riders, train up faster, when put into a special discipline.
Training in all disciplines takes a little more time. But this is told in the game help section, too.

A horse can only be assigned to a rider, that has the very same level. So sometimes it might be necessary to reassign ( higher leveled ) riders to the horses to keep them in best shape for shows.

Level 1 Riders always start with skills 0 - 100, when they reach 101 they will level up to Level 2 and so on.
It always depend on the riders strengh, if they are trained better in different disciplines or in all and how fast it takes them to level up. Once they hit 901 in a single discipline, they will retire and you can fire them.
For y young stable it is cheaper to keep the riders trained in all disciplines, so you can assign the whole 10 horses to him.


In your case, I´d put all your level 2 horses to the Level 2 rider JP (c2) and set this one to all disciplines.
Fire all the other Level 2 riders.
For Level 1 I´d keep Buster (C1) and Mercuria (J1) and set them to all disciplines. Fire all other riders, too.

These are lots of ebs, you can save for the beginning. It is best, when they have 10 horses and for the beginning it is not that important to have specialized riders. The horses do well in shows with all disc. riders, too. The boost they get from specialized riders is very low and you can forget this in the beginnings of the game.

You can take a look at my riderrs lounge to see, how I handle my riders:
Only my specialzed show horses have one disc. riders and they stay together almost their whole HEE lifetime - all the others have all disc. riders ;)

Thank you for clarifying. I wasn't sure if the horses and riders stuck together all the way.

What's your opinion of my level 1 spare riders, are they worth saving, or will much better numbers come along if I try more?

Not really - this is accidentally atm. Because I did not have any Futurity foals last year.

I usually hire Level 1 (young) riders, train them in all disciplines and assign them to the all discipline foals each year.
At the end of the year / beginning of the new year, these L1 riders are just about to level up to level2 like Enrique Canelone.

So I take the Level1 foals from him ( and put them to other/fresh L1 riders ) and assign all the futurity foals for his best discipline to him and change his training to the special discipline. So the Futurity foals are gonna show with a level2 rider, when Enrique levels up by Tuesday next week.

Usually I specialise my foals right from the beginning and my riders just before they change to Level 2.
And i put all specialized horses to specialized riders and all my breeding stock stays trained in all disciplines with all discipline riders.

At my son´s account are only all discipline riders - and his horses show really good, too.

so do the numbers for the disciplines of each rider matter much? I had tried to keep 1 for each level 1 discipline that was 17 or more, but fired them.

And do you have a link to futurity?

I personally would fire 3 of your lvl 1 riders. Starting out you will have a more difficult time paying for riders who do not have max horses on them. Pinch pennies (eden bucks) where ever you can :)

And I have to go with Brown´s: You only need 3 riders atm and not 7!

In your case, I´d put all your level 2 horses to the Level 2 rider JP (c2) and set this one to all disciplines.
Fire all the other Level 2 riders.
For Level 1 I´d keep Buster (C1) and Mercuria (J1) and set them to all disciplines. Fire all other riders, too.

From The Game Help Section

Your Rider
You will want to do numerous things with your rider such as assigning horses to them, changing their payday, firing them, etc. These options are found on your rider's Rider Page. Click the link that says Manage Your Rider to view the available options.

All horses must have a rider assigned to it, in order to show. So one of the first things to do is hire rider on the Hire A Rider page. Riders must be paid weekly, and if you don't pay your rider for three weeks they will become unhappy and quit. A rider can't show unless they have been paid. Each rider may have up to 10 horses assigned to them.
(EDIT: for the beginning: Save Ebs by assigning 10 horses to one rider! )

The important thing to note when hiring or assigning riders to horses is that can only be assigned to a horse that is the same level they are. Of course, a horse may be different levels in different disciplines, in which case the assigned rider level should be the same level as the highest level of the horse. Example: You have a horse that is level 6 in Dressage and level 2 in Jumping and Cross Country. The only rider that can be assigned to it would be a level 6 rider. However, once a rider is assigned to a horse, and the rider or horse levels up before the other, it is perfectly ok to keep that rider assigned to the horse.

Additionally, on your rider page, there is a link to set your rider training discipline. This is found in the Manage Your Rider area.

Sometimes your horse may train up faster than your rider. This will cause your horse and rider to struggle in shows, as the rider doesn't have the skills for the higher level. So pay attention to your horse and rider's levels. Also, if you enter your horse and rider into Federations, the best time to switch Riders is at the beginning of the year before you enter Federations. Then you have all year to earn Federation points. If you switch riders in the middle of the year, you will have to start over and sign up for the Federation again.

Training Your Horse And Rider Your horse and rider may train once a week. They can be trained in the Training Center located under Stable in the game menu. Your horse must be assigned to a rider before it can be trained. Geldings train up faster than Stallions and Mares.

Rider Clinics Riders may also train once a week. They do this by enrolling in a Rider Clinic. Visit the Training Center to train your rider. It is important to train your rider before they show, for the best advantage. If you have a Schoolmaster horse, you may train your riders on the Schoolmaster, and they will earn an extra training boost. Be aware that your Rider will train in whatever discipline the horse is a Schoolmaster in, so pay attention when you match rider to horse.

Rider Retirement Once your rider reaches International Level, they may continue to train and show until they reach a certain point, at which they will automatically retire from the game. You will need to reassign those Rider's horses to other riders.
