Horse Illustrated Championship Season

Horse Illustrated Championship Season PC CD ride race care competition sim game! 



Activision Value Publishing Inc. 



Experience Dressage, Show Jumping and Cross Country Racing Welcome to virtual horse ownership. Championship Season is the most realistic horse related game available. Learn to care for your horse by grooming, cleaning feet, feeding, tacking, and riding them. After you've saddled your horse take him or her to the events. Test your control of your horse with a simple to complex Dressage course. Test your jumping skills with 5 levels of Stadium Jumping. Then off to the country for some Cross Country Jumping through forests, lakes, streams, campsites, old mining towns, and lots, lots more!

Incredibly Realistic Barn Area The barn area is the most realistic barn we could make. Modeled after a real barn design, by modelers with real horses and real horse experience. You can enjoy hours of game play in the barn before you even start to ride. Try your luck at a scavenger hunt, play the Find the Radishes game, or watch over a half an hour of real Farnam horse videos. Poke around the kitchen cabinets or in the refrigerator and find some neat stuff.

Move your horse to the grooming area, and use brushes, hoof picks, fly spray, and coat conditioner. Once your horse is all cleaned up, head down to the tack room and grab a saddle and bridle, then tack up the pony. Hop on and head to the events. After your ride bring your horse back to the barn, put your tack away and clean up your dirty horse. If you like you can feed them a treat for being a good horse. Its just like having real horses!

Take care when feeding the horses. Check the stall clipboards to see each horses grain requirements. Then fill each horses bucket and take it to the stalls. You can also feed hay from the hay area of the barn. Don't forget to make sure all the horses have water too! Just like real horses you'll need to get a rake and clean all the processed food from the stalls. You have to scoop the poop!

Earn enough "Horse Credits" to ride all the different hoses in the barn. Each horse has different characteristics and skills in the events.

Championship Season features stunning 16-bit color graphics and digital sound to deliver realistic non-stop action. No expense was spared when it came to making the realistic environment. The Cross Country event alone was 27 million modeled polygons. Both the barn and events took thousands of hours of render time! You will be shocked by the beautiful scenes.

For Windows (32-bit Systems) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']


This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.
