Equestriad 2001, designed as a three day eventing simulator, was released (before the days of smartphones) on PC and for Playstation 1.
Craig, the founder of FEI Equestriad World Tour (EWT) came up with the idea for Equestriad 2001 when his sister was unable to go riding due to weather on a rainy day.
Craig’s company at the time, Transmission Games, had also previously launched Mary King’s Riding Star (1999), The Saddle Club – Willowbrook Stables (2002), and Lucinda Green’s Equestrian Challenge (2006).
And today, FEI Equestriad World Tour was born based on his previous concepts. FEI Equestriad World Tour is a world first multiplayer/team equestrian game which delivers a fun, realistic portrayal of the equestrian 3-day eventing sport of dressage, exciting cross-country & jumping competition.
In addition to all of this, the game includes celebrity riders, bundles, season passes and internationally recognised eventing courses.
FEI Equestriad World Tour is published by GoGallop Studios and developed by Mighty Games. GoGallop is a leading publisher of equestrian games across mobile, tablet and desktop.
GoGallop’s executive producers have released multiple critically and commercially successful games including the popular Saddle Club series, Bella Sara, Lucinda Green’s Equestrian Challenge, Equestriad 2000 and the world’s first equestrian PC game, Mary King’s Riding Star.

WHAT IS THREE DAY EVENTING?

Eventing (also known as three day eventing or horse trials) is an equestrian event where a horse and rider compete against other competitors across the three disciplines of a dressage test, cross-country test and show jumping test.
- Competitive equestrian event in which horse and rider are required to jump
- Usually within a time limit
- A series of obstacles that have been designed for a particular show
- Main goal is to finish the course as fast as possible
- A form of riding performed in exhibition and competition
- An art sometimes pursued solely for the sake of mastery
- Main goal is to score the highest amount of points as possible
- Often referred to as just “XC” or as Hunter trials
- An equestrian sport that sees rider and horse tackling a long course with jumps and other obstacles
- Main goal is to finish the course as fast as possible
CREATING AN AVATAR
Now that you’ve downloaded the game, it’s time to create your Avatar! Full rider and horse customisation is available to create your own personality, colours, and horse to reach the final podium.
First, enter your name (this is how you’ll be listed and recognised on the leaderboard) and then choose your Avatar.
Tip: you can always change your Avatar and name later if you change your mind!
CHOOSING A HORSE
Okay, so now that you’re all set, it’s time to pick your first horse! The first thing you should see is the horse shop screen, which features the daily horse that you can choose to purchase. While you may only see one horse stall today, every 10 reputation levels you reach, another stall will unlock.
Before making any horse purchase, it’s important to inspect your horse to establish their maximum potential (the highest potential they could ever reach).
Note: Currently, horses cannot gain stats after reaching level 20 but in the future this may change.
Each time you ‘level up’, your ‘Horse Potential’ gradually increases and each time your train your horse, its stats increase.
You can have up to six horses at the same time. A new stall will be unlocked at level 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50.
As you progress through the game you’ll also be able to purchase different breeds:
Hanoverian at level 15
Dutch Warmblood at level 25
Irish Sport at level 35
Anglo Arabian at level 45
Now that you’ve chosen your first horse, it's time to explore everything on offer in FEI Equestriad World Tour!
FEI Equestriad World Tour is a free to play, family-friendly mobile game that delivers a fun, realistic portrayal of the equestrian 3-day eventing sport of dressage, exciting cross-country & jumping competition.

It's worthwhile leveling up your horse as a faster horse has more endurance will perform better, particularly in cross country.
You don't see the actual increase it contributes until you level up. Only leveling up horses increases the stats.
Training takes time to complete, but you can spend Golden Horses to speed this up!
Horse care boosts your horse conditions. After an event you’ll want to give your horse some food and care. Enjoy the experience of giving them a brush, cleaning their hooves or reward your horses by giving them a treat. Caring for your horse also increases your Bond and improves their overall performance in Events.
- When you do something your horse doesn’t like, they become nervous and the Temper increases. To calm them down, tap on the Pet button and pet your horse.
- If you are unable to groom/care for your horse, just go to the settings from the main menu and toggle the haptics - this usually fixes the issue!
UNDERSTANDING YOUR HORSE STATS
- Horse Power (potential): represents your current stats. These stats increase as your horse progresses higher through each level. As each horse levels up (from level 1) they will gain 10 Horse Power per level. For example, once your horse has reached level 7, your horse power will be 60. Horses are currently capped at level 10 and will not continue to gain levels or horse power after reaching level 10.
- Maximum Potential Limit: represents, well, exactly that - the highest possible that your horse can ever achieve. Simple!
- Trained Potential represents: how much a horse has been trained, however training a horse increases a horse’s training potential.
BUYING AND SELLING HORSES
In addition to purchasing horses from the store, you can buy and sell horses from your stable. You can only buy a new horse if you have a stall available.
Under the events tab on your home dashboard you can access a variety of events to build your skills and gain reputation points so you level up. Access to some events is dependent on the completion of earlier events and in some cases, gaining a minimum position on the leaderboard.

HOW SCORING WORKS
The FEI Equestriad World Tour Event scoring system is designd to closely align to the real world scoring system. Each trial is penalty based and the penalties are unique to each discipline. An Event consists of three Trials. During Trials, lower scores are better. The player's penalty points determine their final position in the Event. This position is then awarded Grand Prix points following the FEI table (see attached). The player's aggregated GP points determines their position on the Global Leaderboard. With the Global Leaderboard higher scores are better.
- Dressage Trial: Made up of several moves executed in a timely manner with your horse moving at a designated pace. Each move is judged out of 10 points, with penalties accruing in 0.5 increments.
- Show Jumping Trial: Knocking down obstacles results in a 2 point penalty. A refusal or run out is 4 penalty points.
- Cross Country Trial: 20 Penalty Points are awarded for each run out or refusal.
Jumping courses are to be completed within an optimum time, called Par time. Penalty points are awarded for exceeding the par time at a rate of 0.4 points per second over par.
At the end of each GP Event your final position on the scoreboard determines the amount of GP points awarded. The sum total of these points determines your position on the Global Leaderboard.
There are several things that can affect your Trial scores such as the difficulty level of controls, the condition of your horse as well as celebrity avatars and epic outfits.
Earn reputation points by completing events to level up in the game.
Earn XP by completing challenges to claim tier bonuses in the season pass.
HOW THE SEASON PASS WORKS
The season pass is your opportunity to gain bonuses in the game based on completing challenges. There are two levels to the season pass - the free level is available to all players. For premium bonuses, you can purchase a season pass upgrade in the Store.
When you enter the store, there are four areas to navigate. Here we’ll take you through what each one means and what they include.
You will see the following limited offers in the store which can be purchased with Golden Horseshoes: the latest Celebrity Bundle and the Horse of the Day.
Here you will also find the ‘Premium Bundles’.
The Featured items section refreshes every four hours. You will find items including tack and outfit additions to choose from. While some items can be purchased with Silver Horseshoes, others will require Golden Horseshoes. And then in other instances, you may see items you’re unable to purchase until you’ve reached a particular level to unlock them.
This is where you can purchase supplies to care for your horses to ensure they maintain optimum performance in events. You can buy individual supplies which rotate regularly, an instant supply bundle with three of each item and a permanent supply bundle is also available. The permanent supply bundle contains a rubber curry comb, a soft body brush, a regular hoof pick and a regular hoof brush.
FEI Equestriad World Tour uses Gold Horseshoes and Silver Horseshoes as the in-game currency. Gold Horseshoe and Silver Horseshoe currency packs can be purchased for use in the game.
In the style section, you can change your avatar, outfit and horse tack.
All players have a selection of avatars available to choose from. If you purchase a celebrity rider bundle, your celebrity avatar can be selected here.
One of the highlights of FEI Equestriad World Tour is the ability to style your avatar for each event. You can select an outfit for Dressage, Show Jumping and Cross Country. All players are provided with a selection of free outfits and more can be purchased in the store.
Tip: Check the default style box for the outfit you want displayed on your home dashboard.
