Am known as dragoniys on all English speaking sites (plus Howrse DE and Equideow), and started my game on the International server in early 2008. I'll help with whatever I can, however I firmly believe friendship is earned.

Thank you for the apples. I'm sure there would be other players who need them more than I do though, especially newbies. Please think of them first.
If you really wish to do a good deed, why not give apples to horses in sales which need them? I'm sure we all want to buy horses with morale as high as possible. You can do your part by giving them apples. Even if you are not buying the horse yourself, perhaps it would give an advantage to all sellers/buyers

It's reminded Howrse is set up for the following "trades" only
~ horses for either equus, passes or both
~ black market items in exchange for other black market items or equus
The game is not set up for trading horses for horses, horses for black market items or black market items for passes.
If engaging in such trades, you are playing the game as unintended, therefore doing so at your own risk
It is the buyers' responsibility to check any information, including whether divines can be sold or donkeys still have coverings left.
We cannot retrieve any items lost

Starting an EC - tips
~ When starting out, the best idea is to grow crops for profit - boarders actually cost your centre equus
~ It's always best to grow crops on the largest meadows you can afford. Tractors help increase the yield of your harvests by 50%. Be careful which meadow you place the tractor on as once it's set up, it cannot be taken off.
~ Use manure on your crops - the growth will be much quicker
~ When you are growing on all the largest meadows and feel you have made enough profit, start thinking about growing carrots and ingredients for health mash - the ratios are as follows:
Fodder: 150 per box
Oat: 75 per box
Carrots: 15 per box
Health mash: 15 per box
Tack (saddle, bridle, saddle cloth, polo wraps, ear bonnet) : 1 of each item per box. If a horse uses tack from an EC, it will leave with tack from the EC
~ Only when all that is in place, start thinking about boarders. In order for an item to appear on the list of your EC's advantages on the EC registration page, you need to have double the required amount in your inventory.
~ In the mean time, try to get your competitions up and running (in the Equestrian Centre drop-down box). Most players will set their comps to match skills just below their own horses, then enter their EC comps when they become available - even if it means putting the EC name in the search box. It takes 24 hours to become available once set up and another 24 hours between each time it's actually ran.

These have been tested several times in a box with no shower and no access to the fountain (which is only won from the grand prix). They do work!
