February was a crazy month for us here at Horse Reality with the Kickstarter, but March has been just as busy! We've got loads of updates for you guys to catch up on, so read below for some of the awesome things we have coming along soon.
We've completed the coat colours of the Trakehner and continued our work on the Welsh Pony. The foundation horses for the Trakehner are also ready for the game, however, you'll need to be a bit patient. They’ll be added to the game once the game officially opens.

Some of you may have noticed that we've hired a new artist to help us create some of the game items, which you can already find and buy at the Wholesalers. Please welcome Pepper to the team!
Jullelin has also been hard at work, some of you may have caught glimpses of what she has been working on. She's completed the sketches for tack items: we now have eventing, endurance, dressage, jumping and western tack complete!

Since we reached our stretch goal, driving and flat racing should be added to the game too. Jullelin will be working on these drawings this month. Hopefully, the sketches for tack will then be complete (for now).

As for some other Kickstarter updates, we've sent out the surveys to the backers who bought the “Custom Whites” and “Pick the next breed” tiers. Once we hear back from them, we'll be able to announce the new breed and markings we plan on adding to the game.
Our new server is coming along great! Deloryan bought it early March and is continuously working on it when time allows. We cannot give a timeline on when it will be ready for release yet. The code still needs to be improved and we want to make the server as secure as we possibly can as well as thoroughly test it before it's ready for the real work.
We’ll keep you posted!
