1. Starting Your Game

When you first begin – don’t worry about increasing your ranking/competing against other players – just have fun and get to know the website. Follow the tutorials offered by Howrse (note that if you cancel the tutorial, you can’t get it back.) Not only will these help you get used to the game, they will also supply BM items. You can use these, or sell them later on to other players for profit (although most you need to put on your horse in order to complete the task). Begin to complete objectives as well. Raise your equus reserve by caring for your horse and getting a job as a groom. (In the future, you will be able to take other job offers which give you a higher amount of equus.) If are concerned about your ranking at this point, don’t purchase any new horses. Train your foundation horse to get used to training. You can also read tips on improving your ranking to get an early start. Once you have enough money/passes, purchase a foal with the highest GP you can afford. Begin to train that horse and breed it later on if you would like. Your game ranking will improve if your horses have high skills. If your playing for fun or for ranking, don’t rush into the game right away. Try not to buy many items that you won’t need.

2. Earning Equus:

There’s always the easy way out by selling unneeded items to the store. If you are trying to just raise up your amount of equus over time, there are several ways:

Caring for your horse: Taking care of your horse will actually earn you equus over time. If you put your horse in the meadow to feed, you save equus from not having to purchase good (other than grain). Work your horse through lessons and competitions. The earning will give you a profit over the price of boarding and feed; it just takes a while to see the increase in equus.

Selling BM items: This will most likely give you the most amount of equus in a short amount of time. Advertise the items you are selling on your page and in private EC forums – not the public forums. There is also a page here on HH to advertise as well. All prices vary for each player, but you can negotiate to get the deal you want. Browse other players’ pages to see what items they are looking for, or post in the Item Exchange on Howrse to put your item on the market.

Training Foals to Sell: This can take time, patience, and effort. I don’t recommend this to all players, but if you’re up for it, try it! You will need to train a foal that is a breed that’s high in demand during that time. Also, it’s GP needs to be very close to those horses top in the rankings. This isn’t always successful either – your horse will get sold, but not necessarily for the price you might have wanted. Follow these training tips to train your horse and earn the most skill possible. Once BLUP and skills are completely finished, put your horse up on the market for passes, equus, or both. In order to sell the horse, the price needs to be reasonable. Even though the amount of BM items on the horse might total 20 passes, you can’t try to sell it for that many. (Unless it is worth it because it’s ranking). Try to create a reasonable price and offer to negotiate the price, so the buyer will be more interested. A rule that I follow when buying is 1 pass is equivalent to about 8,00e to 10,000e. Feel free to use this when trying to figure out a price.

Selling Foals: Purchase a high skilled mare (try to find the highest skilled/GP horse you can buy) that has training and BLUP completed. Use Breeding BM items and produce a foal. Sell the foal for a few thousand equus, or even 500e and a pass. Don’t do foal games yet – sell it between a few hours old and 6 months. Players feel more comfortable completing games themselves, so they know they got the highest GP gain. This may not earn many equus and is a bit risky – only the top GP horses can be sold for a high price.

Stroke Horses & Divines: This will give you the smallest amount of equus, but will be beneficial if it’s done everyday. Try to stroke a horse in the Safe Haven (must have 10 days of seniority; go to Breeding > The Office > Last tab), stroke an Xanthos (a divine horse that gives you the chance to earn 1,000e & a HOP – list posted here), or answer a question proposed by the Archimedes (will win an aging point if answer is correct. Sell the aging point for equus if needed: list posted here; answers to questions posted here)

3. Raising Your Ranking

Take a look at the rankings – both General and Breeder. By improving in these categories, your ranking will rise. There are also some other aspects to improve that aren’t listed here. First, the topics from the ranking:

Popularity: Popularity does seem to have a small affect on the ranking. By congratulating about 50 people per day, your popularity rank will rise.

Reserve: There is a ranking for the wealthisest breeders, but I personally don’t think that really has an affect, compared to the other aspects to improve on. However, the more equus you have, the more likely your ranking will be higher.

Number of Horses: The more amount of horses you have, the higher the ranking. However, don’t necessary buy tons of unskilled horses.

Number of Competitions Won: Not the most important, but winning a certain amount of competitions will help. Winning less than 20 probably won’t have an affect, though.

Number of Horses Cared For: By taking care of your horses, your ranking will increase. The more the better. Caring for at least 7 or 8 will bump up your ranking. (Compared to caring for one or two)

Skills of Your Horses: This is why you shouldn’t bulk on untrained horses – having completely trained horses with high skills on your account will definitely help. And of course, the more the better (Number of Horses Owned). Horses with higher than 750 skills will help improve your ranking.

If you work on all of these together, your ranking will improve over time. The one with the most affect would probably be a combination of number of horses owned, number of horses taken care of, and skills of the horses.

4. Training Your Horse

View these two pages to see tips on training your horse. First, view this page (Key To Training) to read about important background information as well as some hidden tips. Then move on to Training Your Horse to see an ideal schedule.
Back to top

5. Winning Competitions

(This is also posted on the training page) When you are looking to win competitions, rather than entering them for skill, look at the other competing horses registered. Compare their skills (as well as bonuses) to your horse. If the skills are similar, but the competing horse has less bonuses, you are more likely to win. If the situation is reserved and the competing horse has more bonuses, that horse is more likely to win. Sometimes you may not have time to view the bonuses if there is only one spot left for the competition. Quickly open the competitors’ pages in new tabs and glance at the skills.

Don’t think that just because your horse is good in Jumping (used as an example) that it has to enter Jumping competitions. That can be it’s worst skill and you can still win. There is a certain strategy behind this: If the horse’s best skill is Jumping, enter competitions that are both reserved for that select breed, but also available to all breeds. If Jumping is it’s highest skill, other breeds enter the competitions might have that as a lower set skill. For the next example, I’ll use Speed as the lowest skill. When entering Speed competitions, strictly enter competitions reserved for the same breed. This way, all the horses competing have this skill as the lowest, so the competing horses won’t have much of an advantage over your horse. Be sure to always check the competing horses’ skills!

6. Creating/Editing Your Layout

There are several tutorials posted here on HowrseHelper to help with layouts, as well as free layouts. These are all posted under the Layout tab. Tips when creating your layout:

  • Try not to make the colors too bright or too dark.
  • If you are using a picture background, make sure the text can be read over the picture. Making the picture transparent will help along with using contrasting colors.
  • Make sure the picture fits in your layout – players won’t want to have to scroll to see the rest of the picture
  • Just like the picture, change the presentation size (on your page, click the Options button to change) so your layout fits with minimal scrolling
  • If you post a lot of pictures/icons, try to keep them contained in a scrolling text box

7. Completing Objectives

I strongly recommend to complete the objectives on Howrse – they add some interest to the game, as well as some prizes. If you are having trouble, view the Objectives pages (On HH, the objectives button). On the right column, there will be tips on certain objectives, as well as any changes Howrse has added. Do not work ahead on the objectives, thinking it will automatically validate. You can only validate the objective if it is currently listed as the three posted on your Objectives page (Profile > My Objectives).

    I just want to ask a question. When you say that after all rides and training are done, you need 20 wins. Must the 20 wins come from the same competition?


    I have 10 wins in gallop and 10 wins in trot. Must it all be 20 wins in gallop?

  2. Jessicaon 18 Mar 2010 at 5:06 am

    Nope. You can have two wins in Gallops, five in Trot, four in Stanima, three in Dressage, three in Speed, and three in Jumping. It could be scattered all over the place.

  3. mina54321on 20 Mar 2010 at 4:23 pm

    I think it was a great idea to post these these tips. I was wondering what you meant by finish all rides in its top 3.

  4. Jessicaon 20 Mar 2010 at 9:34 pm

    There are three different rides you could take your horse on – Trot, Gallop, and Steep Slope.

  5. Maliaon 27 Mar 2010 at 10:16 am

    Hi! My Harlequin had 100 BLUP, and now only has 74.97. Why is his BLUP going down? I entered him in a few Competitions, and I can’t train him. What’s wrong with him?

  6. Jessicaon 27 Mar 2010 at 11:44 am

    Honestly, I have no idea. I have never heard of that before..

    Usually, when someone receives a divine horse, it’s BLUP is at about 70 – meaning that by entering competitions and winning first place, it should go up. My guess is that there was a problem when you first received him and his BLUP was 100. Then Howrse fixed the problem and it lowered back. I suggest to continue to enter him in comps and just wait a day or two to see if it improves at all.

  7. Maliaon 28 Mar 2010 at 7:44 pm

    OK thanks! I also sold my Harlequin to my friend to enter it in my parade, and she sold it back, and i can’t get it for another 10 days!! :P

  8. Malia/KaY kAyon 31 Mar 2010 at 7:39 pm

    OK, I also just bred my 900 + skill mare to a 900 + skill stally, and I got 2 twenty star fillies, and only 200 skills? why can’t i get a high skill foal with two high skill parents?? and also, both of the horses i bred had 100 blup, and now my foals have -100 blup!!!!! i just dont get it!! howrse is confusing me!!!! :(

  9. Jessicaon 31 Mar 2010 at 8:32 pm

    That’s great that they have 200 skills! Usually horses are born with twenty to no skills at all. The parents only have 900 skills and 100 BLUP because they were trained. You now have to train your foals to at least 10 years of age and work on BLUPing them. Once fully trained, they should reach around 900 skills, depending if they have BM items and what the GP is.

  10. mina54321on 03 Apr 2010 at 5:41 pm

    How do you finish all of the rides? I know that there are three different rides, but how do you finish them?

  11. Jessicaon 04 Apr 2010 at 10:23 am

    Continue to train with the rides. You will know that you are done when there is no more skill gain.

  12. goldenvalley09on 04 Apr 2010 at 1:24 pm

    how do u get the 20 wins???? i only ever get 3rd 4th or 5th in comps and i train the horses and enter the least difficult ones!!!!! :)

  13. goldenvalley09on 04 Apr 2010 at 1:25 pm

    oops i meant to put in a :( there not a :) ah well. ;)

  14. Jessicaon 04 Apr 2010 at 3:30 pm

    Always enter in the lowest-skilled competition possible. This way, you aren’t competing against higher skilled horses, especially is you have a foundation horse. Enter as many competitions as you can; it could take a while until you win 20. It usually takes me a few hours, even a few days.

  15. KaY kAy/ Maliaon 23 Apr 2010 at 9:57 pm

    @ jessica Thank You! I was surprised with my results. I’m going to try to breed her again. I need major help with BLUPing and training my foals. I don’t know how to get that many skills! And I can’t really buy passes.

  16. evilmidgeton 22 May 2010 at 9:03 pm

    Hi, I know you explain a lot in the above, but it includes bm items. I don’t know about you, but I can’t buy passes and am not that great at saving passes. Any advice?

  17. Jessicaon 23 May 2010 at 6:25 am

    Have you ever bought or traded BM items with another player? That’s how I get my BM items. Of the ones I explain, I would suggest to get a WOY. Many players sell those since they don’t like that it takes longer to age their horse. It actually gives them much more skills. Make sure you board your horse/foal in the highest EC you can with a rabbit for a pet. If it have a potential of 630 or higher, look in the EC Classifieds on Howrse to see if there are any EC willing to take your foal. Don’t settle for anything less than 20e or even 21e lessons. You could probably buy a WOY for around 4,500e, possibly 3,500e.

  18. KaY kAyon 30 May 2010 at 10:34 am

    Hey jess!! I was wondering, how do you skill a howrse?? I made a couple new accts. because I wanted to see if anything was new… and I got free passes, BM items, turnips, apples, and aging points. I also got a free horse so I could breed! They even give your horse skills.

  19. Jessicaon 30 May 2010 at 8:36 pm

    As in training?

    Um…I understand that you want to see if there are changes, but that’s considered multi-accounting, especially if you send items between accounts. I would suggest to close all but one as soon as possible.

  20. KaY kAyon 06 Jun 2010 at 10:03 am

    Just did. I wanted to experiment because I heard that there was a new intro. And what color horse will I get if i breed a roan with a black?

  21. Jessicaon 06 Jun 2010 at 10:14 am

    You could get any possible coat colors from that breed; Howrse randomly selects a coat.

  22. Schleich13on 08 Jun 2010 at 6:21 am

    How to increase horse´s skills?

  23. Alexon 17 Jun 2010 at 7:14 pm

    Hi. I don’t know what BULPing a horse is. I don’t even know what BULP means! Could you explain?

  24. Collected Canter123on 22 Jun 2010 at 6:12 pm

    Okay, I have a few questions.

    1. How do you buy or trade BM items?
    2. What is BLUPing? What does it mean? How do you do it?
    3. Is it possible to buy passes with equus? Can you trade them or gift them to people?
    4. I’m running really low on money. Like, only a couple thousand. What do I do? I’ve already sold everything I can, and I get paid for lessons and jobs, but it’s just not enough! What do I do? Please help me!

  25. Jessicaon 27 Jun 2010 at 6:29 am

    1. You must have 10 days of senority to use the gift giving feature. If you buy a BM item, the player will give you the BM item and you will purchase their horse in the auction or private sales for the selected amount – this is the only way for players to get their money. If you trade, then the player sends on item and you send the other. It is best to discuss how you will buy/trade with the owner of the BM item to make sure everything is clear.
    2. It’s best if you wait till you have access to it, as explaining it really doesn’t make sense. Bsically, it’s a way to tell if you horse is fully trained. You complete it by training your horse in it’s top three skills, winning first place in 20 comps, and being at least ten years of age.
    3. Yes, you can but them with equus. After your 50th day, you can buy it every 30 days for 20% of your reserve. The only way to give it to someone is if they put a horse for sale in the private sales for one pass and you purchase it.
    4. Sell BM items, train and sell horses…if you are a newer player, it is expected to have a lower amount of equus.

  26. IzzyCutexxxxon 05 Jul 2010 at 5:33 pm

    Hi r the eggs getting deleted on the 8th of July? cause i realywant to hatch my egg but its no were ner finished and lets face it, on howrse im a nobody :( so could ppl lpease add me so i can hatch my egg and get the arabellla fingey inside! Please???

  27. IzzyCutexxxxon 05 Jul 2010 at 5:33 pm

    Oh by the way my user name is HecateGodess

  28. Jessicaon 05 Jul 2010 at 6:14 pm

    They are being deleted tomorrow. The main way the egg grows is by sponsoring family members on the game.

  29. IzzyCutexxxxon 07 Jul 2010 at 4:29 am

    anyone got one selling cheap? will pay 15000e and if u save it for about 3 days if my horses sell i shall pay 20000e? any sugestions on anyone who will sell cheap…ish?

  30. Jessicaon 07 Jul 2010 at 11:22 am

    The Falabellas? Nope, sorry. Cheapest I saw one posted in the auctions for was 50,000e, but have been going for 200,000e and 20 passes or 600,000e.

  31. IzzyCutexxxxon 09 Jul 2010 at 4:29 pm

    Ok can you please vote on my back up plan for Farabrllas:
    A) Find a seller and beg them to keep the Farabellla and then sell praticaly all my horses
    B) Go mad on buying horns of plenty (Before i can do that i will need to beg my dad to buy me some passes!)
    Please choose 1, poitnless but i need a good plan so i can find a Farablla
    anyone know how many have been found?

  32. Jessicaon 09 Jul 2010 at 8:17 pm

    My guess is most of them are found. I saw several Fallabellas in the sales today for 500e and 20 passes…Maybe try to just buy a pack of passes instead.

  33. IzzyCutexxxxon 10 Jul 2010 at 12:25 pm

    Hi its me agian, (soz to keep bothering you) its jsut that i want to give them your email adress but each time i press update
    The date of birth you have typed is invalid
    but theres no were for me to enter my birth date

  34. Jessicaon 10 Jul 2010 at 12:59 pm

    My e-mail address or yours? Is this on your profile on Howrse? There might be a spot for your birth date on the My Account page or on the Edit My Account page.

  35. IzzyCutexxxxon 10 Jul 2010 at 3:44 pm

    no i tried that, nothing.
    P.S I ment my email adress not yours soz for the confuseion

  36. Jessicaon 10 Jul 2010 at 4:42 pm

    It’s fine.
    That’s weird..I’m not sure what’s wrong, as that’s a problem with Howrse’s coding probably. Try contacting a mod.

  37. Jeannie98on 08 Aug 2010 at 4:44 am


    I got this letter and it said I had been given a mustang unicorn as a gift…
    then I needed to enter the transaction code.
    WHAT IS THAT?!?!?!?

    plz help me I am desperate!

    from Jeannie98

  38. Jessicaon 08 Aug 2010 at 8:47 am

    From the Howrse board game, the buyer would received a mustang unicorn. Did you buy the board game?

    Also, make sure the message is from Howrse and not a player.

  39. Jeannie98on 13 Aug 2010 at 9:14 pm

    I have never even heard of this board game thing, and when I went on the forum
    thing to see if people could help me, it had happened to them as well! and it WAS from howrse, because I clicked on this link and it showed me the unicorn, and I had to rite in my transaction code to get it. IS there any possible way for me to get that unicorn?

  40. Jessicaon 14 Aug 2010 at 6:44 am

    I don’t know if I can help much, as I don’t have a code. I’m guessing if you enter the code there, you will receive the unicorn. Or, maybe on the card page?

  41. Selonaon 15 Aug 2010 at 9:58 pm

    Okay, I have a ton of questions. I just started playing so.. What is BLUP. What does it stand for? What does it mean? How do I raise it? Where can I see how much BLUP I have? Same with IBS and GP. Some really basic stuff for those of us who really have NO CLUE would be helpful on this page.

    PS: Add me. I need friends. =)

  42. Jessicaon 16 Aug 2010 at 6:55 pm

    BLUP is just a way to tell if your horse is fully trained. You should only breed your horse if it has 100 BLUP. Raise it by completing training in the top three skills (meaning they are bolded), win 20 comps in first place, and the horse must be at least 10 years of age. Check the BLUP for your horse on the genetic tab; you must pass the 4th riding level in order to see this.

    IBS (in-born/bred skills) can only raise if the parents have high skills; same with genetic potential.

  43. Horseion 24 Aug 2010 at 9:27 am

    Hi i have a question. How do you delete some of your accounts? thanks:)

    Thank you so much for this website! It is the best I’ve been able to find.

  46. Jessicaon 06 Sep 2010 at 12:32 pm

    Thank you!

  47. Amanteon 08 Sep 2010 at 5:48 pm

    I have a horse whose BLUP seems stuck at 70.00 no matter what I do. He is fully trained and the only rides he stands to gain from are the beach rides. He has 24 comps that register between 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. Any ideas on what’s keeping him from improving? I’d like to start breeding him, I have a nice fully blup’d 29* mare for him, but I want to get the best out of this liaison. :(

  48. Amanteon 08 Sep 2010 at 7:30 pm

    Another question: is it necessary to finish beach rides for full BLUP?

  49. Jessicaon 08 Sep 2010 at 8:07 pm

    The 20 competitions need to be first place; not first, second, or third. That’s your problem. ;) Make sure he reaches ten years of age as well.

  50. Jessicaon 08 Sep 2010 at 8:08 pm

    Nope. That’s just an added ‘black market item’ really. It’s not necessary, but it will improve skills.

  51. Amanteon 08 Sep 2010 at 8:51 pm

    Thank you!

  52. Luce37on 14 Sep 2010 at 8:25 am

    Hey, you say above that BLUPisa way to see if your horse is fully trained? My horse is fully bolded, but his blup is at 83%, is there a way to bring his blup up more? Is it impossible to fully blup a horse if you missed some hours of games during the foalgames?

  53. Jessicaon 14 Sep 2010 at 6:04 pm

    Foal games only raises the potential. To get full BLUP, the horse must be 10 years old, have it’s top three skills bolded, and and win 20 comps in first place.

  54. Luce37on 16 Sep 2010 at 5:04 pm

    Hey again, i have another question, this time about breeding unis. I have a female unicorn, and have been trying to breed her about 20 times, and still havent had a unicorn baby. I know the chance is one in 6, but i just want to be sure im not doing something wrong. I select the covering ant accept it at 18.23 or 6.23 game time (the time on the top right), with a unicorn stallion of the same breed (arabian) I use aging points to age her to get the foal, does this have an effect? AShe`s also over 30. is there a chance she cant get unicorn foals anymore over the age of 30?

    I`d also like to know if anyone knows why Morpheus Arms falls off a horse once it reaches the age of 30, even if it is iommortal. Does anyone know this?

    Thank you!

  55. Jessicaon 17 Sep 2010 at 8:34 pm

    You are doing everything right..The only thing I can think of is if you are possibly looking at local time or game time. The correct time to use is game time.
    No, the age or way of aging the horse should not effect the foal.

    MA will stay on the the horse is mortal. I’m guessing it falls off an immortal horse so they cant be aged 5 years a day. xD

  56. bettyon 19 Sep 2010 at 1:47 pm

    i have a ?, how much is a uni, conamera female?

  57. bettyon 19 Sep 2010 at 1:48 pm

    by the way my howrse account name is lincolnlogs

  58. Jessicaon 20 Sep 2010 at 3:48 pm

    All prices vary depending on different factors. A top uni I would say would be about 20,000e…again, it’s a rough estimate. It depends on the horse.

  59. Haleighon 24 Sep 2010 at 7:11 pm

    I was wondering,would it be best to get a pony or a horse at first?I have created and deleted so many users that I have lost track.It seems that I also have problems with chossing a mare or stallion.I also mostly want a Mustang.It isn’t in the breed list.What do I do?

  60. Jessicaon 25 Sep 2010 at 9:54 am

    It’s all up to you. For my game, I bought high skilled breeds that I liked and trained them to get even higher skills. You should be able to get a Mustang..otherwise, get any breed you would like and save money to buy a high potential Mustang. And for the mare/stallion, I would choose a mare since you can get more foals..Or if there is a better skilled stallion, buy that and use a ZLB.

  61. Haleighon 25 Sep 2010 at 10:19 am

    Ok.Thanks!I know that I should probably get a mare.Then,I want a pretty pony at first.But I don’t like the Chincoteague and Australian ponies,they do not look as pretty when they are full grown.So anyway,and I want to be a cool breeder with a gorgeous stallion but the mares are my favorite.What do I do to get a good reputation?I am completely stumped.Thanks for your help!I definitely know who to ask for advice now.

  62. Haleighon 25 Sep 2010 at 11:02 am

    I just made an account called Tazer on Your Belt.I got a Newf mare named Tazer.She is a flaxen liver chestnut.And by the way,should I do the quests WHILE training my mare?

  63. Jessicaon 25 Sep 2010 at 11:57 am

    No problem. :)

    It’s the same as getting a good reputation in real life – be respectful, help others, and be kind. Communicate with others to get yourself known and try to improve your ranking.

  64. Jessicaon 25 Sep 2010 at 11:59 am

    Yes, that would be good. It helps to train your mare as well as get more items. ;)

  66. Haleighon 25 Sep 2010 at 3:34 pm

    Oh no!I have a huge problem,MY HORSE WASN’T TRAINED PROPERLY AND SHE IS ABOUT TO DIE!I HAVE to start a new game,or else my foal WILL die!

  67. Jessicaon 26 Sep 2010 at 10:04 am

    You’ll have to wait until you can access the auctions.

  68. Jessicaon 26 Sep 2010 at 10:05 am

    How much energy/health is left? You don’t have to start a new game. Give her extra feed and mashes and preform every action with her (on the left side only..don’t put her in a stall). You can always use a Black Orchid or a Pandora’s Box.

  69. Haleighon 26 Sep 2010 at 4:36 pm

    Oh.You replied too late.I already have Perfect Pitch and Teal Owl.

  70. Haleighon 26 Sep 2010 at 10:38 pm

    Perfect Pitch now has completed her training in Stamina,Speed,and Jumping.I will start on the others later on in the game.She is also now a Pegasus.

  71. Haleighon 26 Sep 2010 at 10:58 pm

    Now Trot and she is working on Gallop!All of this over either a one or two day period.Turns out you don’t have to do just comps. to BLUP your stallion,mare,or gelding.Her BLUP(Perfect Pitch) is 0.87.She is at the top of her game.I have almost completed her training,yipee!And it is all thanks to this website that gave me confidence.I found Howrse Helper by looking gor what breeds look like when they are full grown and found this place.Now that I have found this place I have new Howpes!(Get it,Howrse,Hopes,Howpes!)

    Thanks for your help Jessica,

    Teal Owl

  72. Ponyluv9on 27 Sep 2010 at 4:37 am

    Hayleigh, to fully BLUP a horse you must:

    1. Fully train in the top three skills. Depending on your riding level, you may/may not be able to access the genetics. If you know this, well then that’s fine. If you don’t, post (or PM jessica, I’m sure she’d be more than happy to help) to find the best three skills.

    2. Get 20 FIRST place wins

    3. Be 10 years old.

  73. Haleighon 27 Sep 2010 at 9:42 pm

    Ok.I already know trhat.You don’t HAVE to have a 10 year old though.

  74. Ponyluv9on 28 Sep 2010 at 5:56 am

    Well because the WoY and PoC (or any other BMs) don’t affect the 10 year requirement, the horse has to be 10 years old. Unless you misunderstood me and thought you (the player) had to be 10 years old.

    I’m pretty sure you get (your horse):

    130 BLUP points for full training
    40 for 20 first place wins
    30 for being 10 years old.

    Sorry if I confused you.

  75. Haleighon 28 Sep 2010 at 5:43 pm

    I know.You don’t have to have a ten year old horse to get full BLUP though.Thanks for your help.

  76. Jessicaon 28 Sep 2010 at 5:44 pm

    The horse must reach ten years of age to get full BLUP. I

  77. Haleighon 28 Sep 2010 at 6:19 pm

    Hey Jessica,do you have any HOWRSE stallions that i could breed my mare with?She has full training and is a purebred.

  78. Haleighon 28 Sep 2010 at 6:19 pm

    I could sell you the foal.

  79. Ponyluv9on 28 Sep 2010 at 7:09 pm

    Hey Jessica,

    I’m your friend (red_chick94) forum mod, but because of someone, I got banned on Howrse. However, I just want to make sure that if she needs any help I can help her, so if she has an email or whatever, if you could just tell me, and then I will tell you my email. (I don’t want to put my real email because I might get spam etc.)


  80. Ponyluv9on 28 Sep 2010 at 7:10 pm

    Also, you do NOT need any BM items whatsoever to fully BLUP a horse, I did so, without the use of any, by 10 years old! I was really happy. :)

  81. Jessicaon 28 Sep 2010 at 9:28 pm

    ..Sorry, but I don’t understand what you’re saying..

  82. Haleighon 28 Sep 2010 at 10:05 pm

    I said that I was wondering if you have any HOWRSE stallions that my mare could breed with.I could sell you the foal.Right now she has completed her training and has 30.88 BLUP.

  83. Ponyluv9on 28 Sep 2010 at 11:18 pm

    Well okay, you know how you have to enter your email address, can only YOU see that or anyone???

  84. Haleighon 29 Sep 2010 at 5:56 pm

    It depends if you make it confidential or not.So you can let others see it,but I wouldn’t reccomend it.

  85. Jessicaon 29 Sep 2010 at 6:22 pm

    Yes, I know. (the other comment was in reply to Ponyluv9) I currently don’t have any stallions up for breeding.

  86. Jessicaon 29 Sep 2010 at 6:23 pm

    Yes, only I can see the e-mail addresses. What happened that you mentioned red_chick94?

  87. Ponyluv9on 30 Sep 2010 at 10:04 am

  91. Lenoraon 05 Oct 2010 at 10:29 pm

    Hi Jessica! I just have a quick question. I was reading all these posts, and it kind of sounds like you can train your horse fairly quickly. I can’t train my horse very much because she runs out of energy, and there’s only so much I can do to get back up to 20% or more before she goes to bed. Am I doing it right?

    Thanks so much,
    ~ Lenora ~

  92. Jessicaon 07 Oct 2010 at 6:18 am

    If you work constantly and do well in competitions, you can BLUP a foal in several hours. You would use enough energy to have to feed the horse 96 ounces of oats (I think?) a day. You will have to age you horse a lot in order to train because of the energy. So yes, you are most likely, training it right.

  93. omgjeannieon 24 Oct 2010 at 1:43 am

    I have multiple accounts, bt i didnt know i wasnt allowed it till recently, now howrse havnt let me go on them untill a certain date, and sed if i dont delete one of the two, they will delete both. i am scared that My favourite one, which i can go bak on today, will be deleted, and my bad one which i can go on next month wont! Will they wait for my other one or will they jst delete my good one straight away?! PLZ help me! :(

  94. Jessicaon 24 Oct 2010 at 7:56 am

    Sorry, but I have never been in that situation, so I can’t help. You might just have to stick with the bad one.

  95. cocunut prize2on 12 Nov 2010 at 5:09 am

    Preoblem with your BLUPPING regime

    well not a problem as such, but this works with EVERY horse

    train in dressage and speed
    then enter comps
    then complete training

    its all about the back up skills, for example in no races (apart from dressage now) is dressage the main skill, so you need the back up skills (mostly(and alteast on in every race) Dressage and speed, so with higt back-up skills and untrained main skills the horse can enter much easyer competitions works every time with me!

    I have a question about the affixes,
    because i read the help about affixes and it says you need at least two horses and 2 karma points to create one affix. (i have this all)
    The link should be on the office page, btu i can’t find it!! or I’m blind or theres something else wrong but i just cant find it!!
    can someone help me?

    oh, btw secret page #1 is http://www.howrse.com/joueur/fiche/?id=4924
    you maybe need to log on and off a couple of times before it works.

  98. Jayon 30 Nov 2010 at 9:34 am


    It’s not in the office…..you need to go to the breeding tab, then my horses, at the bottom left is a my affixes button next to my horses in heaven.


  99. Jeannie12on 04 Dec 2010 at 6:42 am


    Some of the people on Howrse have this thing
    with their avatars! Its really cool! It has their names kinda bbouncing up
    and down in blocks. But its only the people who have been on for like 600 days!

    How can yah get them?


  100. Haleyon 12 Dec 2010 at 11:38 am


    Sorry, but I just had one quick question about BLUP. My horse has all but 1 skill bolded and has ranked on 20+ competitions, yet she only has a BLUP of about 80. Do the competition wins all need to be first place, or can they be 2nd and 3rd too? Thanks!


  101. Haleyon 12 Dec 2010 at 11:42 am

    Oh nevermind about that last comment! Sorry, I was scrolling up and saw that someone else asked the SAME question and it must be 1st place. Thanks anyways!


    P.s., you website is awesome :D

  102. Jessicaon 19 Dec 2010 at 1:02 pm

    Check your “My Horses” page. ;)

  103. Jessicaon 19 Dec 2010 at 1:15 pm

    Players used to make them a while ago..You’ll have to search around for someone how makes them. I suggest asking someone with that avatar.

  104. Ashleeon 23 Dec 2010 at 5:50 pm

    With regard to this suggestion…

    “~First, finish all rides in it’s top three categories. (i.e. long jumping rides, short gallop ride, long gallop rides, etc..)”

    How do you know which rides you should take your horse on? Which rides will benefit which type of horse more?


    P.S. This site is amazing. I just started playing on Howrse and your site has helped a lot in introducing me to the game!

  105. Jessicaon 24 Dec 2010 at 10:53 am

    Thanks, glad to help!

    If your didn’t pass the fourth riding level yet, you won’t be able to see this. If so, then there will be a Genetic tab. It should show the amount of skills your horse can earn in each skill. The highest skills are the ones you want to train it in first. If you can see this, you can go to the Breeding Directory and find the [age for that breed to see it’s top skills.

  106. Sarah (SarKel)on 25 Dec 2010 at 8:43 pm

    OMIGAWSH SO CONFUSING Dx I don’t think I’m ever going to get this right.

    Alright, so you know you’ve completed the rides when your horse doesn’t gain anymore skill…? I’m sorry if I’m being annoying by asking so many questions.

    Also, can a horse be BLUPed and trained to its full without BM items? I don’t have a ton of Equus (like 11,000) and I have no passes, so yeah…

  107. Sarah (SarKel)on 25 Dec 2010 at 10:10 pm

    OH, OH, one more question. (Sorreh x3)

    So, do you do ALL of the rides? Or just the ones that pertain to your horses’ top three skills? And do the lengths of the rides matter? Once again, SO sorry for asking so many questions.

  108. Jessicaon 26 Dec 2010 at 10:20 am

    You know your horse completed rides when there is no more skill gain left. Whenever you select a time for riding, it says how much skill will be given. Once rides our done, that won’t appear. As for which rides to take, it doesn’t matter. If you want to train your horse in every skill, go ahead and take every ride. If you want to stick to just BLUPing it, then just train in the top three rides. The lengths won’t matter, but I try to strategize to get the most out of it. Example: If my horse’s top skill is jumping and stamina, I train long jumping rides. If the top skill is speed and gallop, then I train in short gallop rides. That way, you knock out two top skills at once.

    Yes, a horse can be BLUPed without BM items. It just may take a little longer. ;)

  109. Sarah (SarKel)on 26 Dec 2010 at 11:55 am

    Thanks so much. I’m not as lost now. :D

  110. jeeon 26 Dec 2010 at 9:46 pm

    What if you train your horse first in ALL of the skills BEFORE the rides?

    I go like this:

    I train my horse in ALL the skills, dressage last of course because I can always sneak a little dressage in every day.
    Then, after training is done, I put my horse in competitions, not for the purpose of winning but to gain more skills.
    After getting all the skills s/he can from comps, I go on ALL rides and then after getting all the skill gain I can from rides, I do comps again until I reach the 20 gold places.

    I don’t necessarily concentrate on the whole “top 3 skills” thing. I ask, what is the big reason to focus on the top three?

  111. Jessicaon 26 Dec 2010 at 11:08 pm

    Either way works, but I start on rides first since they appear before training in skills.
    Your way works fine, but I suggest a different way to save time: Do rides before the competitions. This way, the last thing that needs to be done to gain skill is competitions. As the horse gains skill, it also has the chance of winning more competitions since it’s skills are higher than if you were to do it your way.

    I focus on the top three skills first as that’s all the horse needs to reach 100 BLUP for breeding. It doesn’t need any skills in the other categories, although that would be nice. I finish the top three first and then go back to the rest, as they aren’t important. I still usually train them in all skills and then focus on the top three for rides and competitions.

  112. CIurr88on 31 Dec 2010 at 11:37 am

    My unicorn finished all her training and all the skills are bolded but it says the total skills is 0.00. Do you know why that is? Check it out so you’ll know better about what I mean. My username is CIurr88

  113. Jessicaon 01 Jan 2011 at 1:44 pm

    After 25 years, a horse will start to lose it’s skills until it goes down to zero. If the horse if over 30 and mortal (does not have the philosopher’s stone) it’s normal.

  114. Luce37on 02 Jan 2011 at 7:45 am

    Hey, my horse is bolded in its top three skills, and won 20 competitions, also dealing with her top three skills, but her blup seems stuck at 96% Will this get fixed by bolding her other skills too? Or should i use lessons?

  115. Oxygen029on 02 Jan 2011 at 8:53 am

    Hi , I’m trying to bold all of my horse’s skills , but I can’t for Trot – Is it because I’ve been doing too many rides on the beach ? (It adds jumping and takes away from trotting)
    I’ve finished all training and rides – Is it like BLUPing , where you have to do competitions as well ?

  116. Jessicaon 02 Jan 2011 at 1:13 pm

    Would you mind messaging me a link to your horse? The only other thing is being older than 10 years old..

  117. Oxygen029on 03 Jan 2011 at 2:03 pm


    He’s 16 years and 4 months old , so that’s why I’m so confused :S

  118. Oxygen029on 05 Jan 2011 at 8:30 am

    I think that I have to finish gaining in competitions to bold my horse , because on the help it says that you need to not be able to gain anymore skills from lessons , rides OR comps … At least , I think ! ;)
    Thanks anyway xx

  119. Jessicaon 05 Jan 2011 at 5:41 pm

    In order to get 100 BLUP, it must be 20 first place wins – that horse only has 8. You still need 12 more. ;)

  120. Jessicaon 05 Jan 2011 at 5:44 pm

    If the skills are bolded, then all skill was gained from rides and competitions. ;)

  121. Clyde52on 08 Feb 2011 at 11:48 am

    I have 2 questions.
    1. I have a gelding on howrse and I have done all of the training, and I have given him a seahorse, and medusa’s blood, and when he was a baby I did all the games I could do. Is there a different way to get a higher GP?
    2. Are they going to make any more howrse cards? or is there any someone isn’t useing?
    Thanks! =D

  122. Jessicaon 12 Feb 2011 at 12:01 pm

    1. Only games will raise GP; items will give a bonus and training increases skills.
    2. There is a possibility. My guess is maybe this summer.

Is there anything I can tell the mods, or do anything to prevent this from happening again, we have no choice but to use the same computer.

    Yes – message the mods and tell them that there is only one computer to use. Try explaining it to them.

  126. Jessicaon 27 Feb 2011 at 9:35 pm

    There are links to the pages on the site, which are all instant stroke. You can find them by searching Xanthos on Howrse on the horse search.

    When you talk about skills, are you talking about training and rides or skilling to 25 with lessons before breeding, as I’m still confused on how to raise gp, is it all foal games or does or do characteristics play a part, i.e., using clouds or Woy to raise characteristic skills

  140. Jessicaon 04 May 2011 at 4:26 pm

    You take care of it by clicking on it’s name in your “My Horses” page. However, you can only ‘play’ foal games with it (to increase it’s genetic potential) from 8 months to 1 yr 2 months.

  141. *~Taylor ~ Swift~*on 05 May 2011 at 4:51 am

    I’ve heard players with breeding farms that invite other players to join their breeding group. What does it imply and how is it possible?

  142. Jessicaon 07 May 2011 at 11:23 am

    I think you’re just referring to a breeding group. The players sell horses to each other and breed/train the foals. They don’t have access to one breeding farm on one player’s account.

  143. champ88on 07 May 2011 at 12:16 pm

    Hi :) Thanks for these tips, they’re great! Just one thing, when you say finish the rides, do you mean keep going on rides with the horse until there is no more skill gain and then after that starting training? Because in my experience the horse seems to gain a little more from rides after training, but maybe that’s just an illusion… :P
    I see people who get their horses’ skills 400 above their GP and I only get mine 200-300, so I really need every little boost :)
    Thanks again!

  144. Jessicaon 07 May 2011 at 1:37 pm

    Yes, that’s what I meant in the post. I never heard of the rides increasing the skill after training…
    To get extra skills above GP, use A. Tears when breeding to increase inherited skills and complete a lesson each day.

  145. Mupskeon 09 May 2011 at 4:59 am


    I play the Dutch howrse. I started with Frisian Horses and noticed that there arent many ‘Good’ Frisian Horses here yet. Most of them are around 375Gp-ish. I will happily try out your BLUP tips, hoping I will become a good and skilled Frisian Breeder :D

  146. lauchangon 17 May 2011 at 5:57 am

    Hi Jessica,
    At what age do horses stop gaining skills from the rides and training? Is it 25? I ask because I want to focus on playing with the pet first to gain the extra 60 points, but I’m scared I won’t have time to fully complete the training and rides for all skills before the age of 25.
    Btw, thanks for making this site. It’s helped me so much since I started playing Howrse.

    Thank again,

  147. Jessicaon 21 May 2011 at 2:24 pm

    You could split the time – work with the companion a bit then train.
    At 25 years of age, the horse begins to lose any skill that was gained, unless it has a Philosopher’s Stone.
    I would suggest to get all training done. Leave an hour or two after feeding to try to play with the companion then, if there is any energy left.

  148. Caraon 22 Jun 2011 at 8:32 pm

    On the objectives, it says to stroke a horse in the safe haven. How do you do that?

    Once the Morpheus Arms falls off a horse can you use it on another horse?

    Unfortunately no, it’ll just disappear.

  151. Jayseaon 04 Jul 2011 at 2:38 pm

    Cara, go to your office and there will be a spot saying “Safe Haven” click on it and click on the hand below the horse you want to stroke… however, if you don’t have enough seniority it won’t be there. It was either 10 or 20 days, I think…

  153. Jayseaon 06 Jul 2011 at 11:56 am

    I know a tip to save equus in bidding! ;) Don’t bid, keep the auction in another tab. Check back every few minutes and refresh the page. By not bidding, the others won’t start a bidding war with you. If others start a bidding war, don’t get involved. That will add 100e or more onto the ending price. When it’s about 10 seconds left try 500e-1000e over the last bid. This may get pricey, but it’s usually the only way to win it.

    I have a tip for doing rides lets say you get skill gain of 0.05 in speed on a ride but on an 1/2 hour longer ride is only gaining 0.09 do two short rides because you will get 0.1 rather then 0.09 which means either your horse gets more skills or blupped faster

  163. baby-ice-iceon 11 Nov 2011 at 1:13 am

    Dear Abby,
    Did you take care of your mare and put her to bed BEFORE you aged her? If you didn’t you need to start taking care of her and putting her to bed, THEN aging her.

    If your horse is over the age of 25, her health will drop each day.

  165. cuttingirl45on 13 Nov 2011 at 10:51 pm

    Ok so here is my problem. I started an account and right now i’m on my 9th day. I showed it to my friend and we set her up with an account as well. We did it on my computer. She is living in my house right now because her house is having to be professionally cleaned because her little brother got leukemia. So we are sharing my computer because hers is at her house. I had no idea what multi-accounting was until I was reading a forum topic and it brought it up. I read more on it and now I am so scared. I am not multi-accounting but we are using the same computer and I didn’t know about different servers. It says something about an IP address searcher thing that Howrse has, and I am really scared it is going to think I have 2 accounts when I don’t. I really like this game and I want to keep playing. I am too afraid to post this question on Howrse forum because from what I have read, everyone is really mean to people who post questions about rules. When you get 10 days old you are able to gift stuff to other people. Is there anyway we can wait till she has been on 10 days and her give me and sell me all her stuff and then get rid of her account and make another and I give all her stuff back to her? I really don’t want the Mods to get rid of either of our accounts but I really have no way to prove that it’s two separate people’s accounts. Please help. Thank you so much.

  166. Jessicaon 16 Nov 2011 at 5:07 pm

    Don’t worry about it; if you are using separate e-mail addresses, you should be fine. Wait it out until you can use your computer; having her re-make an account and sending you your items to send back to her would might be considered against the rules. It should be okay to share the computer.

  167. Jayseaon 06 Dec 2011 at 11:38 pm

    I noticed that when you get more BMIs or a horse with BMIs, you get higher in the rankings. I beleive BMIs are a big part in the ranking (I save BMIs so I have tons and I’m in the 17 000nds, even though lately I haven’t been logging in as much, I only have a little over 8000e and rarely touch any of my 40 some-odd horses) It’s so fun doing things the easy way ;D I rarely have time to go on howrse anymore because of school, so it helps.
    But please don’t take advantage of my lazyness. lol. I like having a high ranking (being in the 200 000s at the beginning seems crazy compared to now).
    Divines may also get you more points towards your ranking… probably, but I don’t have one so I have no idea.
    If I could trade my BMIs for passes I’d have about… 30? I have no idea and I’m too lazy to check… -begins to sing lazy song in her head- lol.

  169. horserat2on 08 Dec 2011 at 7:28 pm

    Hi Jessica,

    I know this isnt really the topic of this page, but I have a quick question.
    Well, I should know this, but how many days of seniority do you have to have to
    access the auctions? I have a friend who is new to the game, and she asked me and I have no clue!!

    Please respond.


    (P.s. Awesome website!! Has helped me alot!!!)

  170. Jessicaon 08 Dec 2011 at 7:43 pm

    I believe it’s 10..if I remember correctly. :p

  171. horserat2on 08 Dec 2011 at 11:28 pm

    Ok. Thankyou!!!!

  172. Scribbledreameron 29 Dec 2011 at 2:14 pm

    I was wondering…if you crossbred, will the foal be as good as a purebred foal with the same GP would be?

  173. Jessicaon 29 Dec 2011 at 6:48 pm

    Yes, the GP will be the same as if it were purebred. The only difference is that it will be crossbred, and not all players purchase crossbreeds.

  174. Melon 31 Dec 2011 at 1:28 pm

    There are new uni breeding things, and the question is, now u can chnage the breeding times how do you change them???

  175. Jessicaon 31 Dec 2011 at 2:59 pm

    It’s on the unicorn’s page, at the bottom under breeding. Keep in mind you can only change it once a month, I think. (it is limited)

  176. jadieon 04 Jan 2012 at 5:51 pm

    i dont think its fair that if you loos a karama to -1 and get 1 pass it goes to 0 maybe u could change it to -1 1

  177. jadieon 04 Jan 2012 at 5:56 pm

    hi how can i becum a howrse helper and or mediator? plz respond

  178. jadieon 04 Jan 2012 at 6:02 pm

    eeeeeer why wont u respond er

  179. Jessicaon 04 Jan 2012 at 6:10 pm

    I am not looking for more at the moment.

  180. georginaon 07 Jan 2012 at 6:01 pm

    if your horse has been bid on why cant you remove it from the sales if you got a better offer ?

  181. Jessicaon 07 Jan 2012 at 6:48 pm

    Because that player wants to purchase it by bidding on it. You will have to ask the player to bid for it as well.

  182. Firebloodon 10 Jan 2012 at 5:39 pm

    do you know how to give equus to another player?

  183. Anonymouson 11 Jan 2012 at 5:47 pm

    Just got banned for addmited multi-accounting. Ok I have two accounts, but I didn’t admit it, I was about to delete the second one -.- And NOBODY but my one good friend knows about it, so it must have been her, even after she promised not to report it…and she has like five accounts. And she dosen’t know any passwords to my accounts/gmail. So how did I get banned for an ADMITTED multiaccount?

  184. Jayon 12 Jan 2012 at 1:11 pm

    You can transfer equus by mutually buying and selling horses.

  185. Jessicaon 12 Jan 2012 at 8:04 pm

    Howrse finds ways to find players with multiple accounts. Don’t automatically turn to your friend. Howrse cleans the servers everyday – it’s possible to get banned without anyone reporting you.

  186. Zils69on 15 Jan 2012 at 9:45 pm

    Ok I have a ?….I have a male horse that is 18years old his 3 main skills r compleat and he has won 21 compotiitions in 1st place…but he still only has 92% BULP….ideas?

  187. Jessicaon 15 Jan 2012 at 11:00 pm

    That seems like it should be 100 BLUP. If you send me the link, I’ll check it out.

  188. Zils69on 15 Jan 2012 at 11:29 pm

    I know right


  189. Jessicaon 16 Jan 2012 at 9:54 am

    @Zils69 He’s actually not trained in his top three skills. He was trained in Gallop (166) when he should have been trained in Dressage (200). After Dressage training is completed, he will have 100 BLUP

  190. Zils69on 17 Jan 2012 at 12:13 am

    U mean stamina cuz dressage is at about 267…but how do I up his skilles more…he doesn’t get anything out of the rides anymore except the beach and that ups trot

  191. Jessicaon 17 Jan 2012 at 7:10 pm

    Rides on the beach are not necessarily for completing BLUP, just as an fyi. Try competitions.

  192. Zils69on 18 Jan 2012 at 1:36 pm

    ahhh ok…thank you :)

  193. Reneeon 04 May 2012 at 8:58 pm

    Just started up an equestrian center, do you have any tips on how I can improve the cleanliness of my meadows? The FAQ was pretty vague. Thanks

  194. Beccaon 24 Jul 2012 at 4:08 pm

    Hiya this has been bugging me for a while now and thought I may aswell ask:- In the sales I see loads of horses called Junior Croesus. Does this mean the horse has a special bonus or something or is it just a name that loads of people have called their horses, I have recently bought 6 horses 2 of which are named Junior Croesus, what is it?? thanks for reading

  195. Beccaon 24 Jul 2012 at 4:48 pm

    I was just wondering if you can improve the number of stars a horse has (e.g. if a horse has 5* when it’s born is it possible to increase the stars to 10*?) sorry if you have no idea about what i mean

    Also my sister uses the same computer as me and when my friends come round they use it too (t go on howrse) I really don’t want to get banned as i have tried hard with my account and although none of my horses are full trained or anything like that I lve howrse and don’t want banned what can i do?

  196. Beccaon 24 Jul 2012 at 4:49 pm

  197. Jessicaon 24 Jul 2012 at 5:48 pm

    It’s in the Divine FAQ ;) Every month or so one horse is changed into a Croesus if the horse is named Junior Croesus.

    No, you cannot change the number of stars. Once you breed your horse with another higher skilled horse, both of which are full blupped, the foal should have more stars than the parents.

    Just make sure the accounts have different e-mails linked with them and you should be fine. I can’t guarantee that Howrse won’t mistake it for multiaccounting.

  198. Beccaon 25 Jul 2012 at 11:14 am

    thank you for the answer, it helped loads :) ~Becca~

    I needed 34 horses for objective 92, and I got them, but it didn’t complete the objective?
    Is it because one of the horses is a unicorn? Or because one of them is revived?

  203. puckdebesteon 29 Oct 2012 at 11:44 am

  207. plog5137on 10 Dec 2012 at 12:53 pm

    When I tried to restart my howrse account, I still has information about the horses that would have been deleted, so I want to delete my account on howrse, and create a new one using the same username. My friend had her account automatically deleted, and was able to create a new one with the same user, so, how long does it take to fully delete your account and restart a new one using the same username?

    — BTW, my username on howrse is plog5137

    hopefully!!! plz reply soon!!! :)

  208. Jessicaon 10 Dec 2012 at 5:01 pm

    It should take a while. Your friend was able to use the same name since it must have been over 90 days since her account was accessed. If you would like, you could restart your account and keep the same username.

  209. Horse galon 15 Dec 2012 at 3:32 pm

    On howrse with the new magic ride thing my friend got like ten unicorns how come i haven`t got any? please help!

  210. Vitanion 29 Dec 2012 at 1:25 pm

    Hey, I got a question. My account (Vitani1028) got suspended because of a suspected ‘ multiple accounts.’ Now I didnt do that so they have no right to think I did. I wanted to know if you knew how long I would be suspended. Also could you friend me on my side account (its only for now but until I get my regular account back I using this one) my username is Delux1028 (it is with the captil D) please reply back ’cause I really need to know.

  211. Jessicaon 29 Dec 2012 at 1:39 pm

    I believe it’s a 30 day suspension? Typically it says how long in an email that is sent to the email you associate with your account.

  212. brib.caon 01 Jan 2013 at 10:19 pm

  213. Grapelberryon 08 Jan 2013 at 11:46 pm

    I have a question on objective 64, how do you get the skill points with the horse you have bred. It does not say that on howrse and i can not find it. I bought a horse from one of my friends, but they did not tell me what i should do with her.

  214. Annarockson 12 Jan 2013 at 4:40 am

    Hi Jessica
    Thank you for the tips! They cover everything apart from one problem.
    You know in the store, next to sell back items, there is exchange items for BM’s?
    Well, I had a raffle in my forum, and that is how I got my winners the prizes. 2 of them have already thanked me and taken the prize, but one of them cannot see this button and cannot claim her prize. She is 80 days on howrse. Please help, there are only two days left on the offer!
    Thank you,
    Annarocks x

  215. enashon 04 Feb 2013 at 11:38 am

    I have almost the same question as Annarocks. I want to give a Boarder a FW and she’s under 13 so can’t exchange items??? I also can’t just gift it to her since you can only do shop items. Is there a different way to get the FW to her?

  216. hannahon 16 Feb 2013 at 9:13 pm

    hey :) i just had a few questions about the game,
    1) is there ANY way i can buy passes with out real money or 20% of my coins?
    2) I was banned for two months for multi accounting, but i didnt multi account! how can i tell Dr.Zigs this? I have 4 pregnant unis!
    3) what cheap for a uni, and expensive for a uni?
    4) how do you become a MOD?
    5) can you add me?? (Hannagan)

    thanks! -hannah

  217. Jessicaon 17 Feb 2013 at 6:55 pm

    1. You can use pass horses to get “free” passes (more info on the FAQs page)
    2. You’ll have to wait until the ban is released
    3. I’m unfamiliar with unicorn prices as I am not breeding unicorns at the moment. Just take a look at the sales and look at the different qualaties of each to determine the average price.
    4. Howrse will choose a player when they need one. The player must be 18 years or older, cannot ask to be a mod, and has no history of bans from the game.
    5. Feel free to add me once you’re back on Howrse :)

  218. boblolon 21 Feb 2013 at 12:19 pm

    How do you win rosettes??? Everywhere I look someone tells me diffrently and I would really like one of my good horses to start getting them.

  219. Jessicaon 21 Feb 2013 at 4:56 pm

    boblol: you win rosettes from competitions that have a prestige over 75%. A small rosette will be pictured to the left of the name if it can be won for that competition. Typically the horses need to have high skills, around the 2000, to be able to enter those kinds of competitions.

  220. loplaurenon 26 Feb 2013 at 7:08 pm

    Can you create something that tells you how to Bulp? I have a uni foal i want to bulp it. Also i have a few answers to Hanna if thats OK.
    Hannah, what is cheap for a uni foal is 60k and expensives is 110k (without bmi this is for male or female and i only do Equues)
    uni adult for cheap is 70k and expensive is 120k.
    Also what is ur user Jessica on howrse? I want to add u!

  221. Jessicaon 27 Feb 2013 at 4:15 pm

    loplauren, there should be BLUP tips in one of the training guides…My user name is Jessica27

  222. thewarrenranchon 08 Mar 2013 at 8:07 pm

    Jessica, I have a real dumb question……

    In somebody’s review of Howrse somewhere that I read where they were mad that it was “too hard to be the top player in all categories or even COMPETE with so many pass buyers running around” or something like that, it mentioned that you get a private forum, of which you are the moderator, which nobody ever looks at anyway. Now, I set up my EC Center today, so I have THAT forum, but is there a private forum on my page too? ‘Cause I didn’t find one, and the “view the last message on forum” just tells me that I haven’t posted anything on any of the public forums.
    And one more, If I’m not being too wordy for you to handle here ;)
    In this new EC Center [hope no one else has already written this] How do I get boarders? Wait, let me rephrase that. I have 8 boxes, 8 bedding things, and a job offer out on all options, but only 1 meadow. So do I need 8 meadows before I can board anyone? And how do I put the bedding in the boxes, and change it? And better yet, how do you set the kitty for your competition to the level you want? Sorry for so many questions, it’s just that you’re the ONLY SOURCE for RELIABLE information on Howrse.

    P.S. If you have a horse going to the safe haven PM me on the international server, I'm thewarrenranch and I accept haven horses with the best price I can afford. Thanks!

  223. Jessicaon 09 Mar 2013 at 3:38 pm

    thewarrenranch: the private forum that was mentioned was their EC forum. There is no forum for your page. You get borders by people wanting to register their horses in you center – check the EC tip page on HH for more info. Make sure you have the necessary amount of acres for your center (number of boxes = numbers of acres, not meadows, that are needed). Bedding will change automatically once you have a groom employed (or if you have under 20 boxes, it will change automatically without a groom). The kitty for a competition depends on the skill level, I believe. You cannot change the kitty manually.

  224. AttackAndKillon 01 Apr 2013 at 9:30 am

    I might have a usefull tip for some players. If you need made-to-measure bridles and/or sadles for your horses but also want to save a little money this is a usefull tip:
    Look at the horse sales for horses with a made to measure sadle/bridle. Sometimes people sell those horses for less than the store price for those sadles. You give that horse a cheap sadle and then you have a made to measure sadle/bridle for even less than they cost in the store. And if you don’t want the horse you can sell that again and make some money on that as well. I get a lot of saddles that way on the dutch version and the US version of Howrse

    Might be helpfull for some of you traners out there :)

    when u use a pandoras box do they keep their GA coat??

  231. kaseeyyyon 07 Jul 2013 at 12:06 am

    Hi, I was just wondering, what do you look at in a horses genetics to ensure a better foal from two horses? Should I be looking at the BLUP, the total of that horse or its potential??

  232. thewarrenranchon 08 Jul 2013 at 4:30 pm

    @kaseeyyy all of the above. To break it down:

    The higher the GP the better. GP is the main thing- after all it stands for Genetic Potential. The higher the GP, the more skills the horse can have, and two high GP horses together mean an even higher one for the foal regardless of whether the parents had reached their GPs yet or not.

    The BLUP is also big. The whole point of BLUPing horses is so their foals will have a higher GP, IBS and so on than usual. Unless the BLUP of both horses is positive, (not a – before the number) don’t breed the horses. It will just be a waste of time.

    The total of the skills the horses have currently is an added bonus- if both horses are bolded, you will get the maximum possible amount of IBS (Inborn Skills). IBS are an added skill bonus on top of the GP.

    Hope that helped! ;)

  233. Allymistyon 01 Aug 2013 at 9:40 pm

    I have two horses that are stuck at 91 BLUP. All their rides (except beach) are done, they are above 10 years, and have won 1st in about 25 competitions. I cannot figure out what is wrong!

    (These are links to the horses)

  234. CookieBubbleson 01 Sep 2013 at 5:08 am

    If you have bred your unicorn mare in the right conditions and you age her using aging points to make her give birth faster does that lower the chance of the foal being a unicorn?

    oh and another quick question, when you get the ultrasound if the foal is a unicorn does it tell you with it’s gender and colour?

    Thank you :)

  235. memeon 20 Sep 2013 at 12:58 am

    Is it aloud to have multiple accounts on howrse?

  238. Jessicaon 13 Oct 2013 at 2:23 pm

    No, multiple accounts are not allowed on Howrse. You are allowed to have an account on the international server and an account on the US server, because they cannot link together.

  239. Nanion 24 Nov 2013 at 11:35 am

    I was wondering, which crop is the best to grow and sell in terms of making the most money. I’ve always done turnips, but I read some players recommending wheat. I looked at the selling prices and just can’t imagine how wheat is better for earning more eqqus.

  240. Shenanon 02 Dec 2013 at 3:55 pm

    Hey, I’ve looked around and can’t find anything but I was wondering if you can rename breeding farms? I don’t want to try it just in case.

  241. thewarrenranchon 04 Jan 2014 at 12:33 am

    @nani I do both; wheat grows faster, so in the long run you make more, as you can do more crops before summer ends, I usually do both.

    @Shenan Yes you can. You can’t rename the other horses tab, but the others can be done, just go breeding >my horses>go to the tab>scroll to the bottom and click edit breeding farm.

    @CookieBubbles No, everybody ages their unis to get 2 coverings a day, no worries, nothing’ll happen. :) Some times a uni mare will never have a uni foal… don’t get too discouraged you’ll get one sooner or later.
    And no. You must wait till the foal is born, when you get to name it and see it’s picture, to tell if its a uni.

    @AllyMisty They are both at 100 now. =)

    I hope I helped you guys out! :)

  243. JoCoon 07 Feb 2014 at 11:57 pm

    Do all of the horses age after a few hours (without aging points, that is) or is it just your first horse that is capable of that?

  244. Maceyloopaon 27 Jun 2014 at 10:16 am

    Hi,Jessica,can you please PM me on international Howrse,I am maceyloopa,and no capital,I have a very important question.

  245. Jgirl37on 02 Jul 2014 at 11:40 am

    Hi Jessica! I really need 3 passes, fast. I can’t buy them with real money/ part of my reserve. I’m also not selling horses. Could you gift me some or give me tips on how to get some? I’m also not taking the time to age a horse over 30. I need them fast, badly! pm me. Thanks!

  246. Jgirl37on 02 Jul 2014 at 11:41 am

    Oh, I forgot, i’m on international version. Thanks!

  247. Jgirl37on 02 Jul 2014 at 11:42 am

    When you bring a horse back with a pandora’s box, is it possible that they might die again?

  248. Jessicaon 02 Jul 2014 at 12:22 pm

    @Jgirl37: Yes, it is possible. Only a Philosopher’s Stone will make them immortal. If you care for your horse properly, it should reach 30 years (or more if you use a Black Orchid)

    @Jgirl37: The only way to get passes without purchasing them is to buy from your reserve or age a horse past thirty. I have done that since my time on Howrse and have earned many passes. I never purchase passes. If you’re trying to get a P. Stone, check the item exchange.

    I can’t access the exchange.

    Another thing, there are other accounts I have access to because I was there when they were made and know the passwords. But they are NOT my accounts, they’re friends’. this includes jazzyhorse66, happyjoy, radioactive77, 100candies, Tigerlover, RedPegasus. What if howrse thinks i have multi accounts?

    @Jgirl37: Don’t log onto their accounts from your computer and you’ll be fine

    By the way, did RedPegasus happen to post something on here lately? I was at her house on Sunday and I told her about it and she said she goes on here regularly.

    Hello, I just wanted to ask, how many aging points needed to BLUP a horse?

  258. Jessicaon 07 Sep 2015 at 9:35 am

    @Silver: Probably around 60 to get to 10 years. It depends if you earn all your competition wins by that time. If you have a Water of Youth on your horse, it will take a little less than 120 aging points.
