Eventful vacation at the Lakeside Riding Stable

Together they reveal long-guarded secrets, complete exciting quests, and collect objects such as photos and stickers. It goes without saying that the appearance of the player avatars and their horses can be individually customized. While doing so, even the clothing for brand-new game characters is provided that won’t become available at toy retailers until July 2021.
Carrying out quests in a targeted fashion or exploring the open-world game
The single-player game can be played optionally in the storyline or the freestyle mode. The storyline mode is split up into 16 days and has over 40 quests ready and waiting to be completed. They range from getting acquainted with Lakeside to being accepted into the Horse Club™ clique, all the way to participating in the big Lakeside Tournament.
In the freestyle game mode the player explores the extensive terrain on their own. Optional sidequests enable kids to immerse themselves even deeper in the story and, among other activities, attend to daily chores such as grooming horses and scraping hooves, or galloping on one of the numerous race courses while competing with others for high scores and medals. The developers have placed a special focus on the collecting of stickers, photos and new items with which players can individually change their game character and horse.

Figures from Schleich have stood for quality and educationally worthwhile playing for more than 85 years. The video game from Wild River Games equally orients itself in alignment with these values. The highly diversified virtual world including numerous different quests still has surprises in store, even after playing repeated games. This ensures long-lasting gaming fun for children in a variety of age groups and with different levels of experience.
