A Virtual Horse

A Virtual Horse

A Virtual Horse is one of the popular free virtual horse games online. The game is centered around a town where players can raise and train horses, work jobs and compete in shows. No download is required.

The game is a complex one and understanding it might seem a bit overwhelming at first, that is why new players should have simple goals, like learning how to advance a level, or where to buy a horse.

If you want to learn how to get started, watch my Youtube video.

The game has been upgraded since I first played it and I think the graphics have gotten much better. What do you think of the online horse game A Virtual Horse? Do you have tips to share?

If you have played it, be sure to share your comments and tips below.

Bye Avh?
by: Beelzebub

The server has been down for a while so I'm going yo assume it is gone forever.

If that is the case, here are my final thoughts on AVH.

As a longtime player, AVH changed a lot over the years, it went from a very basic style to a newer game with more up to date graphics. Some of which looked nice.

Back in the old days, we could create our own layout and even code it to play music, and had tons of space to do so. Unfortunately, when the gane was updated they made the layout so small and clunky that this became basically impossible.

In the olden days there was a huge community, with hundreds of players online at a time, the chat was active, there were clubs, player owned shops, auction... but most of these features were sadly removed and never replaced.

Some of the long time members stuck around but most of them left, and as the days went on the game got quieter and quieter.

The game never got another good update, for years it just slowly got more bugs and glitches. Less and less people would play, and now it seems we have lost the old thing all together.
Rest in Peace, AVH. Thanks for the memories.

If any other players see this, I hope you are doing well.

AVH tips
by: CrazyHORSErider

I just started playing this game again and I am starting to understand the logic behind it.

So, when you are building a mine, the first one you build shows how long it will take for the mine to build. Also and the right hand corner it shows you what the percentage of the building process.

My name is Bella Starr ;)

Hmmmmmm
by: CrazyHORSErider

Its me here to complain again! Don't scroll cause I know you are after my last comment. So I found the map icon and know guess what... new problem. I kind of wish that the game could download the mills faster instead of having to wait 5 minutes for the horrible animation to process.

by: CrazyHORSElover

The last time I was on the comments for this game I was Lover 4ever, and I complaned that I could not get onto the game and gave it one or no stars.

Now that I have accessed the game I have a whole new list of complaints. I cannot find the map icon and when I looked at my thoroughbred horse it looks like a poorly drawn arabian horse (they are pretty ugly).

I am not a scrooge, I just really want a good game that I can see and actually have an avatar and the graphics are amazing and that you don't need to download on google play.

All that I am typing is, this game is ok and I hope that Sydney will get a new game on here that fits my needs.

I went to play the game one day, and it had 1 good thing: It has a guest profile so you do not need to sign up but your stuff will not be saved. Though it is really slow and my computer is super fast. Also the directions are really hard to understand. I don't really like it.

Look, you guys gave some pretty high ratings, and I'm all for that except the tutorial is long, and really, really boring and you have to wait a long time. I'm going to keep playing it and maybe, just maybe I might change my mind about the 3 stars. Ok? Just saying.

Would not recommend
by: Anonymous

If you're wanting to play this game or a game similar to this one, I'm sure that 99% of other horse breeding games out there are better than this one.

The tutorial is so excruciatingly long, slow, and glitchy that I just recommend skipping the entire thing and figuring things out on your own.
If you want to do nearly anything, like work as a vet/stablehand, enter in shows, make tack, or interact with your horse, every single action plays a long animation. It would take me hours to enter the few horses I had into shows which would otherwise have taken a few minutes without the animation.

The moderation of the live chat is terrible. Most moderators I have encountered will warn you or even go as far as giving you a temporary ban (actually a mute, I don't know why they decided to call it a ban) from the chat for something as minor as using abbreviations or incorrect grammar. Blog comment sections are plagued by mini-moderators trying to catch and report random things that "are probably against the rules" seemingly in hopes of being promoted to moderator. Considering the moderators I have seen, I wouldn't be surprised if some of these mini-mods were indeed promoted.

There are so many more reasons I could list, but these were the main ones that just made my experience not as enjoyable as I hoped it would be.

TL;DR: Long and glitchy tutorial. If you want to do just about anything that would otherwise be quick, it takes extremely long. Terrible moderation. I suggest not to waste your time with this game.

This game is great! You can have loads of horses and can chose if you want to have fantasy or proper horses, and it's completely free, so what's not to like?

Pretty Good
by: frenchfry

This is game is pretty good. The graphics are decent, the tutorial does help a lot, and the players are pretty nice. I also like how there is some interactivity with the horses and the fact that you can grow your own sources and interact with other players. The game isn't very hard and money is easy to come by. Also there is a huge amount of breeds to choose from and that is great. The only problem is the buildings need to be rebuilt very frequently and that can become annoying.

Love this game but...
by: #HorseLover

I love this game but.. why is the tutorial so long? It even shows you the stuff you don't need to know. But overall, a great game. Has no glitches. Easy to play. ^_^

Love this game! My favorite part is how you can choose the breed and color of your horse. But please PLEASE make the tutorial is shorter. Again... why does it have to be sooo long??? HELP!!!

Do you get emails from them?
by: Sisco's Gal

I like it. I played as a guest for a while.

One quick question...

Do you get emails from A Virtual Horse if you register an account?

Oh, another one...

Can you delete your account MANUALLY? Like pressing a DELETE ACCOUNT button?

I don't want to be stuck with an account the rest of my life if I don't like the game... I still have sort of an idea what it's like because I play as a guest.

Whew, this is turning out longer than I expected...

Anyway, PLEASE answer my questions soon if you can because when you play as guest you miss the best parts of A Virtual Horse Ranch and I'm anxious to get going with the real game and I only asked all this because once I got an account I couldn't get rid of and had to keep it.

Best game ever
by: My online pony

I have found AVH to be a really challenging well thought out game and the new version graphics is set to look even better.

The good part is a really well-written wiki with an easy to use yellow block. I can't say enough good things about the moderators that keep things safe for all those using chat and Pirate Princess, the game administrator who quickly sorts out any problems or squabbles between players.

The game has come a long way since the days of loading up static images as horses pictures. It is challenging for some to level a horse up to breed each time but hey, who needs a bunch of low level foals.

I guess I can always use breeding charms if I want many siblings that nobody else will buy from me. Another great thing about the game is that it can be played totally free.

Great Game
by: Khan

I love this game.

I have been playing pretty much since it first came out, and I find it challenging and fun. The genetics are realistic, so breeding the colours you want can be a real challenge if you do not read the tutorials and have no knowledge of genetics.

The game has moderators who genuinely care about internet safety and always stay on top of dangerous activities like sharing of detailed personal information.

They also have a no tolerance policy on bullying and other behavior that victimizes others, which makes the game off putting for rule breakers, and people who like to cause drama, but makes it a safe, happy environment for people who want to have a good time.

Parents! This is a site your kids can play on safely!

It used to be an awesome game
by: Moonlight (player name on AVH)

See how the title reads - 'it used to be'. When I joined, back in 2010, the game had a nice cozy layout and the horse graphics were good to go.

They didn't move, indeed, but I think they looked better in 2D and motionless than those alienoid spawns we get nowadays.

Also, the game used to have a forum and the community was quite friendly and helpful. Man, I remember getting nice horses from the market for just ONE COIN (anyone remember the horses-for-one-coin?). Level them up and sell them for pretty money to make another player happy. It was a fun game, it was complex yet playable. Until it all changed and got down the drain.

BUT. I want to change things. That's right. I want to get the people of AVH to re-create the old version of AVH on another site, like previously happened when the oldest version of the game was called horse-game.net and stayed the same forever.

If any of you is on AVH and wants things changed just as much as I do, CONTACT ME ON AVH TODAY! I'm sorry to be yelling but I need my voice being heard. My player name is Moonlight. Thank you.

Confused!
by: Anonymous

I managed to get a magic horse who was level 45 for just one single coin and some more for other great offers. But it says they can't breed again until they reach level 1000/5000 and I'm not waiting as long as that would take me to train them to to breed. How can I speed up the training process?
