While having a lovely visit from a new friend Genevieve, after curing my poor foal of a Corruption bug I had a thought. Considering the idea that our beloved Horses aren't providing much more than Cart pulling and Transportation from one location to another, they are otherwise usually just found sitting around our Deed Pens munching away on our grass and crops. Imagine if there was somewhere you could go, with a bunch of other people looking to use their Equine friends for so much more than laboring tasks around deed or transportation. Somewhere that people could gather to enjoy each others company and truly see who's horse was the fastest of the fast. Now I've seen a thread created not too long ago about a Cross Country Horse Race. But this was an event over quite a bit of terrain and perhaps wasn't exactly the easiest or safest way to approach competing with one another. Considering I can image that there would be Trolls, Fiends and other dangers for every player who decided to partake, and perhaps a few people might've even died or lost their way to never actually complete the race in the first place. Personally I imagine a more controlled environment, with a start and finish line where player's could ride within a safe track, without Hostile's riding on your tail every gallop of the way. Where each Race event would be more controlled as to who could and couldn't enter as well. Where each entry of the Cross Country appeared to favor horses of the top Speed Breeding pools, with the best of the best gear, and anyone without these things were left in their dust.. What of the players who couldn't even ride Horses yet? I hope to host a Track that would encourage all kinds of Race types. From the typical Horse Back, to Cart Races, and perhaps even some of the more 'strange' types. If you're confident in your well bred Bulls or Bison and want to enter them into any sort of Race, who is to stop you? Proving a complete Track is entirely possible, with varying terrain and terrain obstacles such as different pavements, mossy terrain and other things that players would either have to find a way to avoid or push through to maintain their place in the run. I'd like to be able to provide winners prizes for Grand Events that we'd be able to host on a more scheduled date. Prizes could include a Free Horse, Horse Gear, and other Goodies too. How many people would be interested in this sort of thing? What things do you think could use improving in this idea or should be added/removed?
