Around the World Pony Quiz was developed by VisualEquestrian for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. It has two features that are quite interesting. The primary feature of the app is information, written in the form of questions. It has a database of over 120 of the most often-asked questions about horses and ponies. These questions were collected by the developer and represent her many years handling and showing her own horses. She also has a riding school at which she introduces children to the fundamentals of riding. Did you know, for example, that a horse can travel 20-30 miles a day, and some endurance rides can be up to 100 miles long? Or, that a young male horse is called a “colt?”
The second feature is a bio and photo gallery of an adorable little pony named Scooby. He was the inspiration for creating Around the World Pony Quiz. At 28 years old, Scooby has helped countless children become more confident riders, so it was only fitting to feature him in his very own app!
What Fun Educational Apps Liked-
Beginning around ages 6-7, children start becoming more serious about their interests and hobbies. If your child is captivated with horses, then he/she wants to learn as much as possible. I think Around the World Pony Quiz is equally interesting for both children (ages 6 and up) and adults. Its design is utilitarian and not “dumbed down” for younger viewers. I could envision it being used by both novice horse fanciers as well as more experienced riders.
Giving this app to your child guarantees that he/she will soon start thinking about riding lessons. Kids, if you need a way to start the conversation with your parents, this is it. Around the World Pony Quiz will make you sound like an expert.
Around the World Pony Quiz is availabe for download via the iTunes App Store - iOS Universal
RRP - $0.99/£0.69/€0.89
