Growing up I loved to play games on the Wii and when I found out there were horse games for the Wii I was beyond excited.
I couldn't wait to try out the horse games (that seemed so interactive and cutting edge at the time). While I haven't managed to play all the Wii horse games yet I have tried to get them all on this page.
So if you are looking for awesome Nintendo Wii horse games, many of which have been recommended by other horse crazy girls, this is the page for you.
*Just a reminder that most horse games for the Wii require you have a nunchuk as well as the regular Wii remote.
Don't forget to add your comments and tips as well!
