A sequel to the sports-simulation game that focuses on horses and horsemanship. This time around, we assume the role of a teenager who dreams of a professional jockey career.

Another installment in the soccer game series by EA Sports. Compared to its predecessor, FIFA 11 features many improvements.

Lucinda Green’s Equestrian Challenge (PS2)

Sports 12 June 2007

An equestrian sports simulator developed by IR Gurus. Lucinda Green, a six-time Badminton Horse Trials winner, is the game's face and she is also players' mentor – she informs about the sports' rules, how to take care of a horse and how to train with them. Before we try to win, the first thing that we need to do is to create our character – we can equip them with various accessories and outfits (we can do a similar thing with our horse). In addition to that we also need to complete a practical test from the knowledge given by Green. After that we can participate in championships where in order to win we need to not only have a good time and style of our passage but also a presentation of a rider and their horse. The graphics in Lucinda Green's Equestrian Challenge aren't very detailed, however, the way in which the game is presented can remind of a TV transmission of a real equestrian competitions – this is because they are presented from a few different cameras. It should also be mentioned that the game was developed for people of all ages and with different skill levels – thanks to that the game can be enjoyed by beginners and more advanced players.
