Riding Star 2 is the sequel of Riding Star, a riding simulation released by dtp Entertainment AG for Windows 95/98 and ME. Just like the original game did in 1999, the sequel puts the emphasis on a realistic portrayal of riding challenges and features the three riding classes military, dressage and horse jumping.

The player can create a rider avatar and own several horses. These may be equipped with different types of accessories such as saddles, blankets and decorations. While in the stable, the player can look at each of his horses from nearby and take individual care of them: the quadrupeds can be fed, their fur can be groomed and their hooves can be cleaned.

By completing tournaments in the three classes and five difficulty settings, the player can win prizes, unlock further content and improve the statistics of his horses. Each horse gains additional experience points through training and participation in tournaments.The game features a number of indoor and outdoor levels of varying difficulty, including a virtual representation of the world championship stadium in the German town of Aachen, home to the World Equestrian Games 2006.

The controls are somewhat different from most games featuring horses: The reins of the horse are simulated with the mouse and the keyboard is used to control the speed.

The game also features a hotseat multiplayer mode and an online tournament mode. The latter allows players to compete against each other by logging into a server. During the game the players can chat with each other and their results are recorded on a highscore list on the game's website. [source:mobygames]
