Need The Horse Community's Help

Hello Everyone,

First let me introduce myself. My name is Jordon, I reside in Michigan. I'm a horse lover and owner of several. I unfortunately haven't made it to this site before, but am looking to be a contributor to it now!

I also am highly involved with website work. I'm developing a free horse simulation game to be played thru your web browser. I'm sure everyone has seen them before, but I'm hoping this one will be different.

The game is called "The Open Range". It is a game that will let you create a account, and start humbly, with one horse, a small ranch, and some hand-me-downs. From there you will operate much like a real ranch, including having to treat, train, and care for all your animals, attend events, training seminars, etc. It is going to be a very in depth game that is intended to compliment real horse people with it's realism, and at the same time give a fun, yet learning environment to horse enthusiasts, or those who have never even thought about horses. The game will allow you to become a famous breeding stable known world-wide, a humble vet, or a olympic rider... the possibilities are endless.

Here's where you guys come in. This game is in what we call "pre-beta" which means not all of the functions are up, but we are to the point where we would like to get some people to "test" things and give us feedback. As a tester you will be able to keep your account so that all your work won't go down the drain when we officially release. If anyone here is interested in this please post here, and I will get the information to you. I look forward to your reponses, and hope that this goes over well with everyone.
