What a pretty herd you have.
I didn't get my first horse til I was 30 and for years had to steal whatever opportunity I could to be around them, even if it was just feeding handfuls of grass to someone else's horse over the fence. Sometimes it was a 5 minute ride down a driveway, sometimes it was paying for once-a-week lessons.
Your game sounds like a great option for horseless souls, and I bet you learn a lot to prepare you for the real thing too.
don't worry, spiders, I keep house casually.
