Everybody likes to make fun of Barbie's Horse Adventure but they forget there are horse riding games coming out all the time. Riding Stables 3D from Treva is just such a game and it's available now on 3DS Eshop. As you'd expect the game is all about making friends, training horses and competing in events including show jumping and mounted archery. There are also some AR features that let you project your horse onto a real location using the 3DS cameras.
It sounds like a pretty deep little game, I just wonder why these things are always aimed at little girls; it seems just a bit sexist to me. Horses can be manly! Horseback archery sounds pretty cool. What about a game about being a cowboy, or ancient Roman cavalry? Just sayin'. Egh, watch this trailer if you're interested in Riding Stables 3D.
