Bored and looking for a fast pickup? The best horse games online are a few clicks away. Let's pretend we just downloaded one of the top games.

The first screen that comes up is the main menu. If you're a new user you will want to try the quick start, which allows you to run your first race and experience the thrill of 3-D virtual reality with a minimal learning curve and fuss.

First you pick your horse, and then make your bets. Now you mount your horse and wait for the start.

The gate opens and the race starts. Love that sound of flying hooves. You do what comes natural and begin beating your horse to perform and ramp up to maximum effort. You are soon rewarded by running 1st out of 20. Now you navigate your horse left to the fence and fly at top speed, getting 4 lengths ahead of the field. Too bad, with 3 furlongs left you suddenly notice that your horse is out of energy, and the entire field flies by you. You come in last. Beginner's mistake, let's do it again, no real horses were harmed for your learning experience.

Next time you might notice the options to create a user tournament, go to your own stable and breed horses, load pre-built races, access champion horse files, look at game stats, etc. But that won't stop you from using the quick start again until you figure out how truly hard it is to place in the top 3.

Okay, you get curious and try the pre-built races. It won't take long to select Churchill Downs as your track, so you can try to win the 2 million dollar purse. After another flurry of races, your best is 3rd place.

Third place at Churchill Downs? Somebody pinch me, I must be dreaming. And everybody's been calling me a geek.

There's many vendors of horse games online, offering thoroughbred races, horse jumping, harness horse racing - something for all horse lovers. But face it, thoroughbreds stir the blood far more than is decent, and satisfy like nothing else.

Of Arabian origin, their tails carried high, thoroughbreds are known for their speed and stamina, small heads with concave profiles, large eyes and small muzzle, arched neck, sloping shoulders, strong level back, and awesome hindquarters and legs. Once the exclusive domain of Muslim warriors, there are now many derivative breeds, such as the Andalusian. Riding one beats even a Rolls Royce or Lear Jet. It imparts the rider with nobility and shows real bravado. Sure, not everybody can be built like a champion jockey, but with horse games online you can pretend.

Still hesitating about sampling some horse games online? Think they'll drain your credit cards and impart viruses? Relax, the top vendors are all legit and trustworthy, and most let you download and play for free and bet with virtual, not real, money.
