The Sand & the Beach and a Water fight!

Before there is even a forum post in the Events forum, you get to hear about this promotion before Howrse officially releases it.

Sand & Beach:

Until August 31st, you can find grains of sand when playing the game. All these add up to some really great prizes. Some include passes, the Sand Horse, equus, rides on the beach, and other great BM items!

To find sand, all you need to do is produce foals, train horses, buy passes (if you would like) and log in each day. You can find all the amounts on the Sand and Beach page (link on the Home Page) To find all the sand gains, roll your mouse over the differen objects you find (i.e. starfish, seahorse..etc.)

Two prizes will be explained directly from an admin:

“*The rides on the beach:

-Allow you to move your horse’s skills from his lowest to his highest (at time x and according to his training)

-Are available for horses over the age of 5

-The skill points that are exchanged depend on the level of the morale. (it is impossible to achieve the full amount of exchangeable points if the rides are done with less than 100 points in morale) and gradually become lower as time goes by like regular rides.

-The exchanges are limited to 2,5% of the genetic potential of the horse.

-Available as an exclusivity during the contest, they will be available to everyone mid-September.”

“*Gypse The Sand Horse:

-The sand horse is a horse that goes back to the state of dust every morning and that you’ll have to rebuild to play with him.

-Rebuilding Gypse randomly gives you between 5 and 10 sand piles.

-You can give sand piles to Gypse to increase his skills. They will increase fast in the beginning and slow down as time goes. You’ll need more and more sand piles to raise his skills the higher they get.

-During the contest you can also give sand piles to Gypse that you can find during game actions. That’s up to you to chose

-During the contest Gypse can not be sold. However it will be possible once the contest is over.”

Beach & Water Fight

Water fight:

You will receive UFOs when playing on Howrse. Catch these and send them to your friends (you will receive the item as well as the friend). Sending the most water balloons will give you more sand to add up!

Top 10 senders: 50 starfish, 75 crabs
Top 50: 40 starfish, 50 crabs
Top 100: 30 starfish, 25 crabs

You can only send 15 balloons per week.

Will be updated soon!

    do you have to invite friends before you can send them baloons, because i don’t have any friends, and i don’t know how to send them to players.

    Nope, just send them to the people on your friends list on Howrse. ;)

    That’s good!!
    I got some fab stuff in my 3 HoL’s….DH box, zebra, large fertile meadow….but the most I ever got from a balloon was an offer on passes…buy 10 get 10 free!
    Fingers crossed for a HoP next then! :o)

    BTW Re the sand piles….after 31 August are they obsolete? If so, I guess it’s best to spend them asap….
    Also, where do you find the seahorses and crabs etc….I only found my stash yesterday and have no idea what to do with them either!
    Thank you x

    My guess is yes, the sand will be gone by September. You can get seahorses rides (sometimes) and placing 3rd in a competition. All the others are similar: placing __ rank in a comp, completing rides, birthing to a foal, birthing to twins, etc..You can find it on the sand page; roll your mouse over the different sea creatures.

    hi! can anyone please give me a link to both of those pages, the Water Balloon Contest page and the Sand And Beach Contest page?
