Thank you for five years!

Published by at 8:00 am under News

I’m pleased to announce HowrseHelper’s five year anniversary. Back in August of 2009, I was excited to see my site earn 20 or 30 page views. Today, it’s at least 4,000 a day! Thank you all for a great experience; I’m excited to see what the future will hold. I’m so glad many of you have stuck with me through all this time. To the many of you that are new, welcome! To include everyone in the celebration, I am holding a contest (below)!

Throughout the years, I’ve collected a complete history of Howrse through my posts. If you’d like to see the complete archive, click here. Then use the archive at the bottom left corner of the page to go through the next months. Otherwise I’ll provide a brief blurb below:

March 2010:

May 2010:

  • Before objectives, we had achievement levels 1 through 9. Finally, Howrse released the last two: Level 10 and VIP. Once they were released, they were deleted in a month!

August 2010:

January 2011:

April 2010:

July 2010:

April 2012:

July 2012:

February 2013:

April 2013:

  • April Calendar: Prank your friends!
  • This is when Howrse starts to do promotion after promotion. We used to have a month or so break in between!

That’s the history! I tried to pick out some different promotions that haven’t been repeated.


Contest has ended. Winners have been messaged!

    My name on Howrse is Ecstacy, and I have used your website extensively for help in the game! The manuals on Howrse definitely need a face-lift.

    I would say my favourite part of the game is the Equestrian Center. It is probably one of the most complex items on the game, from managing crops and the different boxes and meadows, to running competitions and trying to up your prestige. What’s even better is that everyone has access to this feature.

    For the future of Howrse, I would like to see the Help Manuals updated and different breeds added to the Canadian server (the only server I play on). The International version has a huge variety, and I don’t see why this cannot happen on other servers.

    Hi, my user on Howrse (I play international) is kellie-cow2:)

    My favorite part of Howrse is the promos! They earn you lots of prizes that will be helpful later!

    I made a account when this game first started but it got deleted when i left it for a few months to have a new baby.

    So i had to start all over again but thankfully there are alot more ways to get black market items now.Like lottery.
    Its helping me get back to where i was on this game as i lost all my stuff.

    I wish howrse would bring back the search engine for Affixes.

    Your website has been so helpful.. Cant thank you enough for making this website.
    Also Thanks for the spoiler events coming up in advance.

    My user is flyingleadchanges. My favorite part of HowrseHelper is the piñata helper post. (at least it was when piñatas were going on) Happy 5 years!

    My user is wiggles218 and my favorite part of HH is the divine links! Its awesome! I’ve already gotten one HoP since finding this blog and seeing those links.

    Hi! My favorite part of HH has to be the help part. whenever I have a question about howrse, you always have it answered. And I love the Archimedes question answers for when I’m really stumped and need an aging point. I don’t think your website needs any changing- the layout is perfect and things are always easy to find, and also your advice is VERY helpful :) . It would be awesome, however, if you had a challenge or raffle like this once a month. I’m sure you’d have a ton more veiwers than too, but a raffle as cool as this might be hard to do again ;) . My username is MorganMorgan and my 6 year old cousin just made an account recently. It is Crazy4Howrse, and of course I usually end up helping her, but when I am not there to answer her questions I just tell her to use this website. She’s real excited about the raffle! Happy 5th!

    Lily likes HH because she thinks its fun. She would like to see more howrse pictures though. Her username is Crazy4Howrse and mine is MorganMorgan. She says happy 5th anniversary too! (Really funny- she’s thinking of it as a marriage anniversary ;)

    I used my email for this comment because she doesn’t have one yet- I hope that’s ok!

    Um… I like your website cuz its cool and helpful because I can’t figure stuff out a lot, I mean A LOT ;D and I would like to see a lot more spoilers because spoilers are fun… usually, unless your friend tells you what happens at the end of “The Fault in Our Stars” not cool >:l Anyways my user is MaximumRd in appreciation of the awesome Maximum Ride book series, and well my name of course. I really hope I get lucky for once! I want a hera’s pack!!!!!!!!!!!!
