Round-up four beautifully photographed horse cards and read a colorful description of a horse. Then, each player secretly votes which horse best suits that story. Score when your "horse sense" matches other players. You'll be surprised what your horse-loving friends think!
As an early reviewer I received this game in exchange for my opinion. This game is unique and my daughter loved the photographed horse cards. It was a blast trying to guess what horse everyone picked and it was funny hearing the reasons why they picked the horses they did.

This game is great for kids who love horses. The game really captures some fun aspects of horses. It's a simple game that has my kids interacting and talking a lot about features of the horses in the pictures. The cards bring a depth to the horses that makes it extra engaging.
The photos are gorgeous, funny, and interesting. Each horse has its own personality. My girls really love the heart roll where they get their own horse.
My kids really want to play this game often. They laugh loudly and are clearly very excited as they play!
One downside is the cover photo. I'm not sure I would have purchased this based on the cover or the back summary. The cover feels old compared to the beautiful cards and artwork. The only other downside is that the write-ups seems somewhat complicated for the age range. My 8 year old can read it but some write-ups are a struggle.
This game is probably best for a younger crowd.
As an early reviewer, I received this game in exchange for my opinion. I have a 6 year old daughter and she loves this game. She just recently got into horses too so it is perfect for her. We had a blast playing it! Great for family time - especially with more people (not just 2). Our only suggestions would be that there are more Apple tokens to win so the game lasts longer and my daughter thinks there should be a blue box so that boys want to play. It’s true too - it’s geared towards girls but it doesn’t need to be - boys would love this game just the same.
Overall a great game and very different than the normal board game. We highly recommend!
The Giddy Up game is a different and easy to play game that the kiddos really enjoyed. As an early reviewer I received this game in exchange for my opinion. I would however buy this game in a heart beat for a kid that loves horses.
Based on the description I was expecting there to be a lot of jargon but it was pretty straightforward and the glossary provided was helpful for the terms we didn’t know.
I will say my biggest issue with this game is the vocabulary for the recommended age group. The 6 and 7 year olds really struggled with the vocabulary. It was just a tad bit beyond their abilities. That being said, kiddos will probably need an adult to help them with reading and definitions. As long as you’re willing to play with them it really is a grand ol’ time.
As an early reviewer, I received this game in exchange for my opinion. My husband and I don't have a kid yet, so we just played this game alone. It was actually pretty fun. We laughed a lot and it was a quick game. I can really see young kids loving this game.
I played this game with my 6 year old daughter and 14 year old son. Of course I had to beg him to play with us but after one game he had so much fun he actually suggested we play again! After two rounds my husband heard us all laughing and having a good time so he joined us and we played two more rounds! My daughter actually cried when we stopped playing! The pictures of the horses are beautiful and it’s so fun voting on what you think the horses personality/story is! The directions are so easy to understand. The only negative I might say is that some of the words on the cards describing the horses are a little more advanced and so we had to explain what they meant to the kids (ex. Robust, rotund, etc.) but I wouldn’t let that keep you from buying the game! As an early reviewer, I received this game in exchange for my opinion.
My daughters are huge Our Generation fans and also love horses. This seemed right up their alley. The pieces are quality and this game will last and hold up well after numerous plays. My girls loved the real horse photos! My 7 year old seemed more into the game and the idea behind it. My 9 1/2 year old did enjoy playing but seemed a bit too old for it and said that the point of the game was a little different. It's not your typical board game and I have to agree with her that the idea behind it was not too exciting to me as an adult. I gave it 4 stars because it is quality and will hold the interest of a horse-lover. I didn't give it 5 stars, as I think the ages for play are limited and that my girls will outgrow it quickly. For the 5-7 age range it is a good game that does not consume a whole lot of time to play.

My 6 and 10 year old daughters LOVED this game, and keep asking to play together. Their favorite part is looking at all the different horse cards - some are pretty silly. As a parent I also love games that I can actually enjoy playing alongside my kids, and I loved the fast pace and group participation aspects of this game.
The concept is simple - try and figure out which horse best matches the description - and if you guess the same as other players, you win some apples! The great thing about this game is that there is a lot of variety - based on a roll of the die you either match to a characteristic, "trophy" or story to find the horse that best fits. Additionally, everyone gets to play with each roll of the die, so there is no boredom in waiting for everyone to take their turn.
There are a TON of horse cards (with different pics on front and back) as well as description cards. With so many different combinations of horses this has a ton of play potential. The game also goes pretty quickly so it's good for a quick game or multiple rounds if you want to keep playing.
And note - even though this is Our Generation branded, you don't have to enjoy dolls to enjoy the game. The only obvious "doll" part is in the picture of the rider on the horse stalls.
As an early reviewer, I received this game in exchange for my honest opinion - but in all honesty we loved this game so much we'll be buying it to give out for birthday presents!
