  • With all the changes that happened recently

    Its a little bit harder to win when challenging

    You lose a little less when challenged as well

    normally, everything seems fine

    There's Got to be a bug.

    8 Points in 11 days.  I used to get 4 to 20 per 100 gas. Not 8 out of way over 1100 gas.

    Hope its fixed or its another thing not to do. don't do alot. I' over level 300 but have some things not done since level 30.

    All that time/money wasted to me.

    Please if can find out fast.

    @Wons (AU1)
    They have totally changed the definition of a good horse, they use the numbers quite differently. It may be that your horse was quite good but now it's not. Having similar amounts of Racing, Dressage and Jumping is really bad news.  Rowdy Racoons original Horse Guide thread is pretty good at explaining it.

    NOTE. 
    In last 12 hours made more points than 13 1/2 Days. 60 gas only

    I bet in 14 days seen 60 wins. That's 240 points. 
    same on loses. so 60 off that.
    so 180 missing which went?
    Need delete buttons for parts of the game players choose to not do. NO USE.

  • @Michaelmn569 (US1) you don't get any points from wins when others challenge you, only when you challenge others.  The messages you get on log are ONLY from when others challenge you.  This has ALWAYS been the case.

    Yes there is a bug in the horseracing. Only this time not an unexpected one,but onet hat GGS put in it on purpose.
    We are no longer supposed to win any races anymore , at least no more than 1 or 2 a day.

    Yes, it's harder.
    I used to not bother for the 1st week. reach diamond sometime in week 4 and not bother for the next weeks.
    Now I'm having to put in more effort, try out different strategies, figure out the best way to use equipment, get my head around the new arithmetic, think through new training requirements.
    I'm enjoying it   (but yes, losing more than I win is a crock)

    Glad to hear that at least somebody enjoying it! And I totally understand that higher lvl players needed something more challenging, but what about lower lvl players? I used to get to gold, but now I can't even get out of bronze, definitely not fun for me, especially when I lose to much lower lvl horses,
    Oh well.... what ever,

    Yes, the horse racing is much more of a challenge than before.  My horse(s) appear to be in the lucky group as able to make diamond the last session and believe on course this session too.  From what I see seen so far, even the best horses are not at a point to do their best racing, and I believe even then, if can win 50% of the challenges will be doing awesome.  To get near a 50% win ratio in my opinion will take (1) three horses (one for each event) at or close to the 200 Level with lots of extras from the cooperative horse meadow. (2) all of the trees and buildings on the horse ranch built out to their limits, (3) being able to equip your horse with 3 pieces of upgraded equipment for most races (I haven't even used upgraded equipment to any meaningful amount at present as don't use the mine currently for horse items).  

    At the present time and my rate of progress will probably take me at least 2 years to be close to meeting the 3 points noted above.  I hope to have 3 horses trained for each event near level 200 by the end of this year and further improve them next year.  Although I lucked out getting the "once in a blue moon" zero build time and make great progress on the horse ranch trees as well as main farms, it will take another year for me to get those trees all to level 4.  Once the trees all to Level 4 I'll know better how to equip my horses to increase chances of winning a challenge.  I'm more or less thinking the game will require one to equip their horse with 3 pieces of very highly upgraded equipment to be able to have a 50% chance of beating a similar level horse in a challenge.

    So for now, I will continue to race my 190 to 198 level horse against 150 to 200 level horses without any equipment as likely to lose against them anyway.  This allows me to at least use most of the time 3 pieces of equipment when I challenge the horses below level 150 where my chances are better.  And make sure you view the horse in your challenge and learn which ones seem to be better prospects for winning against.

    My main point is the horse racing is a different game than it was before, and if not willing to accept the changes, you are setting yourself up for much frustration and disappointment.  Accept the changes and make hay for the horses while the sun shines.  Happy horse racing all.
