When I was a kid, I was officially horse-crazy. I read Anna Sewell’s Black Beauty over and over, all the Black Stallion books by Walter Farley, and the Misty of Chincoteague series by Marguerite Henry. I took riding lessons, and I dreamed about going on adventures with a beautiful black Arabian horse as my best friend and constant companion.
I’m pretty sure I wasn’t the only one to feel that way, so it’s no surprise to me how incredibly popular Star Stable, an online massively multi-player horse game, has become for people of all ages over the last few years.
In Star Stable, players explore the beautiful 3D island world of Jorvik, care for their horses, interact with other players, participate in competitions, and complete fun quests, all from horseback. Weekly updates to the epic storyline keep the content fresh for more advanced players.
Anyone can download and play Star Stable for free on their computer, but there is also an option to unlock premium content with a Star Rider membership.
Membership gets you access to the entire Star Stable world and exclusive Star Rider horse breeds like Andalusians and Arabian horses. Members can race their horses with friends and create their own riding club with a private chat channel. As a member, you also receive 100 Star Coins every week to spend on cool clothes, new horse equipment, and even your dream horse!
While it’s always my job to appropriately supervise my child’s activities online and offline, as a parent I really appreciate the effort that Star Stable has put into keeping this a safe and enjoyable game experience for all ages. The chat function is moderated, and there are no third party advertisements.
