    I see that when we win a race we get gold horseshoes plus a +2 competitor experience with each win.  But I notice that the competitor experience shield on my horse only indicates a "1"  How many of these wins do we need to have in order for our horses to reflect the +2 on their competitor shields?  Also, when my winning horse (with upwards of 50+ experience points) upgrades a level, do the winning competitor shield points received at the lower level go back to zero? or do they carry over to the horse's new level?

    Not that it matters now, but I think you were mistaken in believing that it was better to breed an all-round horse.
    My early analysis led me to the conclusion that way more than half the time I was challenged in show-jumping (I assumed that this was because that was the default and most people didn't bother to change to either of the others) By breeding a specialist show-jumper I could expect to win most of my challenges (7 out of 8 usually) and also win more than half the time when challenged. Once I mastered the Meadow I created a specialist race horse (which was also fair at dressage). I am now stuck trying to create one all-rounder from them but, hey-ho, that's how things go sometimes.

    I discovered that my counter for the competitor experience level is non-functioning for my horses.  My horses still register as a 1 despite many winnings of +2 competitor points and even those of +1 points.  My horses still show 0/90 when I hover over the little green shield.  Do I need to send in a ticket to support to resolve the issue.  I do believe that my horses should be registering 2 competitor level.

    Check the mine on your horse farm - yes the one you use to make gold in :(

    All right. Let me give you my opinion and answers.
    First of all, the first update with the new horse farm was simply amazing. The best update ever made by GGS in years. Nothing to comment against. All excellent and well done. A new exiting and much fair competitional system.
    But the happy last little, because now GGS, came with a second update that brought a lot of mess.

    First mess: Apparently, our work of years - the horse quality has gone....this is baddddd, but fortunately, looks like it;s only a bug and hopely, they will fix ASAP. 
    I'm saying this because a collegue of mine, made a "love" in the horse stable with a known quality 5 horse (now with no sign) and generated a +7 breeding effect resistance (Q5 can generate +7 or +8 agility, power or resistance) which leads me to the conclusion that tha quality is there..only a display bug exists

    Second mess: The new competitor level and competitor experience points. Man, the idea it's ok, but the manner in which was implemented is bad. Why?
    Because when somebody challenge you, you gain points...you need 90 points to get to the next level and have in defence better equipment. BUTTTTT the problem is that when you send you horse in the meadow, when you make a succesful love there, and your horse get out of the meadow, ALL YOUR PROGRESS IS RESET.
    So, if before sendind the horse to the meadow you have for example 17/90 progress, when the horse comes out of the meadow your progress is again 0/90 :(
    This means that any improvement of your horse is blocked...because if you do your improvement, your progress is gonne! This is not fair....you should correct this thing and keep our progress.

    Third mess: To answer to Gavinfarms and all of you. The metals for the Smelter comes from the MINE.
    FROM our Gold Mine!
    This is so stupid man! How do you imagine, that we will not use our gold mine licenses any more and extract these metals? For what? to produce better equipment for horses like more efficient helmets that gives +3 fuel instead of +1 fuel that normal ones give? Is simply STUPID. 
    It;s much easy to put the gold license in the mine, extract the gold and buy with the gold, the fuel, instead of not extract the gold, make all this twist process for very small bennefit and lose the gold for not using full time the licenses.

    Fourth mess: We are no longer allowed to select in defence, what equipment to use...it's only selected by default and that's it.

    I stongly hope that you will correct all these elements and bring back the satisfaction that first time we had when you implemented the first update.
    Thanks...and if you have more questions, I will try to answer to you!

    I wholeheartedly agree with you, @clinn (RO1). The team needs to fix those issues.  I couldn't figure out for the life of me why my horse always was 0/90 and never accumulated the competitor experience points.  Yes I was trying to make improvements to my horse in the meadow not realizing I was going to be punished for doing so...they may as well remove the Horse Meadow if it destroys what we need to do to improve our horses.  This is not fair to the competing horses nor to the owners thereof.  

    Also I too need my mine to be working the gold mining licences.  I suggest they put in a new mine just for the horse stuff.  Just think of all the money GGS can make when we upgrade that new mine!

    Yes, I won't be making any metals for the smelter, I guess.  This is a new low, to attack the gold mine in this way.  That is just wrong.....so, so wrong.

    Yes you are absolutely right, that is indeed an aspect that gives you a greater chance of scoring high with showjumping. And I think it will stay that way. For some players it is still difficult to determine what is best for them to play with and then choose the part that is already ready.

    Also, now that more details of oponents are known, I have made an analysis of the 20 players I regularly encounter in racing, and it shows that more than half (11) of the players have showjumping as the best part. Followed by 7 players with racing and 2 players with dressage. But 2 of the players who have racing as the best part play showjumping....

    I hope you can quickly install your all-rounder, and wish you very good luck with the races!

    @clinn (RO1)  totally agree with you except for

    Fourth mess: We are no longer allowed to select in defence, what equipment to use...it's only selected by default and that's it.

    while it is true we cannot select like we did before, you can change what shows as default for each discipline by using the green scroll buttons to change what advantages can be gained etc. you can do this for the 3 pieces of equipment.

    Correct



    The higher the % of those 3 boxes, The better will be your chances to win , To simplify it

    Try to find which of your horse , coupled with which competition , provides the highest number there 

    That should be the basic step!

    Why do I get oodles of victories in challenges but I get no points for them, have they taken them away. These are the ones that happen automatically.

    I have never had to ONLY race top 10 players....Out of the 50 challengemails I now have in my inbox - there is 1 horse(!) below level 120 - rest varies from 130-200 - (same players over and over, both that challenges me, but also the ones I can pick from when racing myself.
    I have no chance in h*** to beat those horses - what's the idea about the balancing - or did you balance at all?

    I know SKN is a small server - but I also do know we're more than 50 players below lev. 130 horses.

    Whilst I do agree that the horse tournament needed updating I am disappointed that horses I spent time and money training up have lost their rare status. Also I am still confused about making and using the equipment.

    Since I didn't see the breeding quality for every horse in the stable after the update, how can I complete this task?

    Since I didn't see the breeding quality for every horse in the stable after the update, how can I complete this task?
    I do believe the "breeding quality" indicates the number of times you breed the horses...It will take a while since I think the number of times is four...not sure now about the number of times, but you can check your horses' genealogy to see how many time they were bred in the stable. Then just keep trying as long as your horseshoes last.  But your point is well pointed out and it is not fair to new farmers trying to get established in the Horse Ranch to have their tasks be so outdated that completion of them is virtually impossible.  I do hope the Mods see this and direct the issue to the Team for correction.  I feel for you!

    The new horse ranch is so messed up and convoluted it is as if BF tried to mess it up on purpose.  The tournament wins are random ignoring horse levels and breeding affects.   The entire ranch is so over busy and cluttered it is not worth the time.  They should have a destroy option so we can remove the trees and equipment buildings.  
    Been getting into the platinum level for the last 3 years and never missed a tournament but this is becoming a chore and like a tedious job.   They for some reason took the one zone that was simple and relaxing and madeit an unpleasant experience....
    Ditto. Especially the 'Destroy' option... in fact, I'd welcome that on ALL my farms 'cause I've about had it with this game. Period.
