    Don't put too much trust into the sec calculation, It seems its only made for 'fun' and I believe it does'nt show the real racetime. 

    Maybe we can get that confirmed?

    this is how bad the new horse racing is.  I took screen shots as I was fairly sure I would lose the race as I now lose most.

    my opponent was almost 100 levels lower, I have improved my horse in meadow over 250 times.  Only to get this almost every race, what chance to lower level horse have.  Note I also have equipment on. 

    BTW I am in diamond now and so far only 4 others with me on AU server well below norm at this point of horse event

    If everyone is making equipment and using it then don't they cancel each other out?
    Seems to be a time waster.
    I haven't won one race using them.
    I agree with all of the complaints.
    I have gone from plat to gold with a 113 and 88 horses.  Both rare 3
    The 88 is only 10 points behind the 113.
    I race for the gold prize now instead of the gold mining certificate.
    If I don't get the gold then I am done with racing.

    Same here SirBobby, I have hit plat for at least 2 years, not this time... I have learned a lot of what is going on with the horse farm, but when I can win against a higher level horse with higher attributes and lose to a lower level with lower attributes...where does that make sense? 


    it makes no sense and that's the problem.  i just lost to a horse 55 levels lower than mine even though i added all the attributes i was supposed to.  it's just become a big joke and a waste of time

  • You would think that fixing the horses would be a priority. It must be costing a lot in potential gold sales given the current situation of losing races no matter what you do. I  would think that this would discourage most players from spending gold on horses, fuel, training, etc. In the overall rankings for 2020 I am 2nd in the diamond division. With 15 days to go in the current season it is doubtful that I will make diamond division despite racing at every available opportunity and with the use of add-ons.

    You've been here a spell now surely you have started to notice that they GGS is never in a real rush to fix things that folks will throw gold at to do/win. The new equipment may take take us a while yet to get it really figured out.
    Know your horses very well will help a ton when it comes to making the things that will work with ur horse/s.

  • My horses use to be the most fun part of the game and I spent a lot of time with them, upgrading etc.  Now it has become so complicated that I am ready to sell them and not bother with horses.  I have tried many ways to improve them but my horse rarely ever wins a race.He use to be great and fun! There is much to do in this game and that part has become the last thing I can bother with anymore.

    I'm ready to give up, seriously considering setting my horses free :(

    Well I tried to do the races one last time, and it did not matter if I used the equipment or not I still lost the races, I can only seem to use the saddles and helmets that is it, so I guess I will just do other stuff on My farms instead of the races, so I won't be able to get gold anymore, but oh well, I did however find out that I can now use the Fishing area, in which I made a boat and can go out and fish now hopefully, so that is at least something for Me to do, :)

    I gave up asking  anything more about the horses. No questions are being answered. No theories work, no patterns of winning or losing regardless of what is best equipment. Maybe the next tutorial they are working on will be more helpful. 
    Do you still believe in Fairy-tales and Santa Claus?? It will not be better,and GGS will not admitt that they made a huge mistake. They never did and will do. But i am very glad that more player having their eyes finaly open.  And off-topic. They have shorten this FHWE by 24 hours give or take. Another event ruined
    There exist two versions of the FHW event, a three day one and a four day one.

    Are there any limits in horse training in horse ranch?
    I kept training my horse on strength, endurance and dexterity attributes and it was increasing percentage on horse rushing behavior. But now its stopped, training on strength, endurance and dexterity is not increasing horse rushing behavior any more (current stats: balking behavior 22-25%, normal behavior 28%, rushing behavior 47-50%).

    That is interesting. By "training my horse on strength, endurance and dexterity attributes" do you mean increasing the horses levels ?
    I was under the impression that increasing the level made the horse quicker and it was increasing the breeding effects that altered the percentages. Having said that, my top horse is at 46%, I will keep an eye on it and see if I can get it past 50%.

    The highest level horse is not necessary the fastest at the finish line. Training on leveling up gives your horse to be a milliseconds faster at any obstacle with any behavior, but if my horse has better percentage on rushing behavior than yours, probably he will win more often. 

    Strength, endurance and dexterity attributes are those with small green arrow up in coop horse meadow (other than horse with green arrow signs)
  • Uncle John (AU1)Uncle John (AU1) AU1 Posts: 8,578
    Yes, we are both on the same page  (the original horse guides have always used "Attribute" to mean level and "Effect" for the ones you are referring to). I was just making sure I understood your terminology  :¬)
    The possibility of a ceiling at 50% had not occurred to me.

    Just finished one more training in horse meadow, now on Racing breeding effect. And it decreased horse rushing behavior on Dressage and Jumping competitions, but haven't increased rushing behavior in Racing competitions :(

    I still think that there are some training limits.
