Show Jumping

Game Description: Ride a horse and jump over different obstacles, walls and fences to complete each course.

How to Play Show Jumping:

  • Click the 'Play' button.
  • The Up arrow key makes the horse run faster.
  • The Down arrow key stops the horse.
  • The Right arrow key turns the horse to the right.
  • The Left arrow key turns the horse to the left.
  • The Space bar makes the horse jump, (but only when the horse is galloping).
  • Notice the tiredness bar at the top right corner. If the horse gallops, it gets tired quickly. A tired horse will slow down.
  • Each course has obstacles that the horse must jump over.
  • Each of the obstacles is given a number.
  • You must jump each obstacle in the correct numeric order. That is, jump over obstacle 1, 2, 3, and so forth.
  • The number at an obstacle shows which side the horse must approach to jump over the obstacle.
  • For every jump that you complete, but do not do cleanly, you will earn 4 fault points.
  • The clock is at the top.
  • Once the clock goes down to zero, you will earn one fault point per second until you finish the course.
  • You will earn a score if you are able to complete all of the jumps. You will also go on to the next level.
  • Fault points will be deducted from your level score.
  • Your goal is to complete each course without getting disqualified, and to score as many points as you can.
  • You will get disqualified when you run into an object, when you run into the fence that surrounds the race course, or when you break the route by jumping an obstacle out of order.
  • When you get disqualified you must repeat the level you are currently on. You will not need to go back to the beginning of the game.
  • Each level has its own course. I believe, although I have not personally verified this, that there are 6 levels of play.

Show Jumping Game Options:
  • The game sounds may be turned on or off by clicking the microphone icon located at the upper right corner.

Show Jumping Playing Tips:
  • Practice, practice, practice! Show jumping has a definite learning curve. You will need to learn how to control your horse.
  • When you first start playing, it can be frustrating to keep getting disqualified over and over again. But, if you keep at it, all of a sudden it does get a lot easier.
  • Watch for the red circle icons with numbers in them. Should you get lost on the course, they will point you in the direction of the next obstacle to jump over.
  • On the second jump on level 2, after you jump the obstacle there is very little room to stop before hitting the fence. If you are having trouble with this jump, you may want to simply walk through the obstacle and pick up the four fault points. At least it is better than getting disqualified.
  • For me personally, I find Show jumping to be a very difficult game. I don't even worry about my score. I just concentrate on trying to compete each course. If you are struggling with this game, you may want to take the same approach.

Richard's Rating: 3 out of 5.

Pro: Show Jumping features superb 3D graphics, animations, and sounds. Yes, it does take some practice. But, once you start to get good at it, it quickly becomes enjoyable.

Con:
  • Show Jumping requires a lot of patience. As I previously mentioned, there is a definite learning curve. If you are not a patient person, do yourself a favor and do not attempt to play this game because you will get frustrated very quickly.
  • Occasionally, your horse may get stuck on one of the rails. When this happens there is nothing you can do except to refresh the page and begin the entire game over again, which is very frustrating.
  • Show Jumping does not save your game progress, which is certainly a shame.
