The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Horse Tricks


20140216-163459.jpgThis post will tell you all you need to know about the horse tricks hobby.

I’m going to tell you a little bit about how to do the hobby and what you can unlock if you find all the ribbons.
Who can do horse tricks?
Adults, 2 sims and 2 horses can do this hobby at one time

How can I do horse tricks ?

Using any horse at the stables, once the horse tricks area has been built and cleared. The guide to the stables post explains how if you are unsure.

Where can I do horse tricks?

At the stables

What is the horse tricks option?

Horse tricks- 3 hours

What are the horse tricks skill levels?

There are 6 levels, these are:

  1. Horse Servant
  2. Neighbourly Friend
  3. Obedience Trainer
  4. Sideshow Rider
  5. Trick Master
  6. Horse Whisperer

How do I collect ribbons?

By selecting the horse tricks option and clicking the exclamation mark once the time is up.

What ribbons are there to collect?

The pictures below will show you all the ribbons you can collect:

Level 1 ribbons are:

  • Take a Bow
  • Here Boy

Level 2 are:

  • Nod your head
  • Kisses and Hugs

Level 3 are:

  • Stay put
  • Meet and greet

Level 4 are:

  • Rearing on up
  • Spinning pony

Level 5 are:

  • Back it up
  • Look away

Level 6 are:

  • Say hi
  • Shake your head

What do I win?
1st time- unlocks 2 star horses

2nd and further times- 3 LPs

I can’t find one of the ribbons, any tips?

The only advice I can really give you is to keep going, that is the only way you can find them- there is no trick to it, its completely random.

Is it worth using the lucky spin?

I would say no, it doesn’t give you one that you need it just gives you one at random so really it is probably just a waste of LPs

How do I start the collection again?

Once you have finished the collection you can click start a new collection at the bottom of the ribbon list to start over.

  1. This hobby was disappointing. After three hours, there were several times when the exclamation point never appeared and my Sim just stopped. It happened about 20-25% of the time and was still happening months after the hobby was released. I completed it once, but won’t again, and I don’t want to waste even more time vaulting. If they ever fix the glitch, I wish that preteens and teens could do this hobby. Also, I think that they should keep their riding outfit on and not change back into their regular clothes while doing it.

  2. help needed. I’ve cleared out the Horse Vault area and was ready for my sim to practice, etc… But I need a 2 star horse. My question. I know I can buy a new horse, but if I don’t want to, yet, will my 1 star (that I got free) ever earn a 2nd through other actions? And going forward with anything else (well, except furniture) increase in star ratings based on use?

  4. I have area cleared out and i try to get my sims to do the tricks but blue footprints just apear please help

  5. I already completed this quest and hidden unicorn quest, unlock all stables, reached level 6 horse tricks skill, and completed the collection then begin the next collection. But, why i still can’t buy the 2 & 3 star horses?
    Thank you

  6. I have a 1 starstar full happiness horse and a sim on obedience training level but now I keep getting blue footprints and can’t continue with the hobby. Have you any idea why…thanks

  7. Whenever I try to do horse tricks blue footprints appear. The horse trick area is cleared and fixed, but i still can’t. What’s wrong with it

  8. It’s because your sims can’t access the arena another horse is probably in front of gates . You have to click on ride the horse and make your sim ride the horse to different spot (away from gates) than dismount horse and pick the horse you want to use to vault / tricks/showjump etc and the gates are now clear to enter .
    I have a question for anyone who knows my sims life dream is to enter horse shows… How do I enter a horse show?

  9. How do you put the horses back in their stable ?

    • you don’t, they will go back in when they want to

    • You can ride the horse into the stable then dismount. You then have your sim walk out of stable and the gate will close behind them. The sad thing is they don’t stay there but, for some strange reason I feel better if I put them up after feeding and grooming lol

  10. Hi!! so, I want to purchase the unicorn (just finished the unicorn quest) but it won’t let me quite yet because I don’t have the show jumping hobby. do I just need to clear the show jumping area to be allowed to purchase it, or do I need to clear the first two horse hobbies (tricks & vaulting) and clear the show jumping stable to unlock the show jumping and the unicorn/3-star horses? sorry if this is confusing

    • You need to clear all 3 areas and complete all 3 hobbies to unlock the unicorn
      Because horse tricks unlocks 2 star horses which you need for the vaulting hobby which unlocks 3 star horses which you need for the show jumping hobby, once that hobby is completed for the first time you unlock the unicorn

  11. Can neighbours help clear the horse tricks area?

  12. I’ve been attempting to do the horse tricks for weeks. I’ve clicked the action and my sims (2 different ones) have done it, but I’ve yet to receive any ribbons. I’ve done this maybe 10 times and because of this I was unable to work towards getting the unicorn. Its aggravating. Has this happened to anyone else? I can’t proceed with the hobby if I’m not being rewarded for what I’ve done.

  14. My sims already repaired first stable and I had fist horse. They were feeding him and taking care.. Now he disappeared and I don’t know where.I didn’t restart the game or something cause it all happen in two mins help me 😭😭😭

  15. All I need is the final lvl 6 ribbon it all the game gives me is “take A bow”. I’ve been trying for two weeks straight. Anyone else have this happen?

  16. Can a two star horse do horse tricks and show jumping? Also, can the horses bought with lps do different things than ones bought with simolions? Ps love your blog;).

  17. I kept getting the blue tracks earlier today. I had my sim ride the horse out of the horse trick pen. Then I clicked the horse and the option for the horse tricks and both the sim and the horse went to the pen and did it. Yay!

  18. I have one sim who is level 6 on this hobby, and I have some advice. I want to unlock the two-star horses for another sim to own, and so I had to do this hobby. I have been constantly having Temporary Sim (the name of the horse tricks sim) do the horse tricks hobby. I started the hobby two weeks ago, and last week she became level 6 and so far has one last medal to go! In the morning (8 o clock) , if I am able to check up on my sims before school, I collect the medal she got and start her on another round. After school (4 o clock) I check up on my sims and collect her medal and start her again. Then after I’m done with my homework and all that, I go to the game again (7 o clock) and after I check on my other sims, I go to the island to collect the medal and start her AGAIN! I think this way is efficient because you have a greater chance of getting all the medals quickly.
    Tips: Don’t get frustrated. I know it’s annoying when you keep getting beginner medals, but all you can do is keep on going.
    Downside: Since she is only doing the hobby and nothing else, she is stinky, tired, and needs to use the bathroom. But hey- she isn’t confined to her house yet! Besides, when I updated, she became inspired again after a long time.

  20. How many sims can do the Horse Tricks Hobby at a time? I noticed on your horse vaulting and show jumping posts that only one sim can complete those hobbies at a time.

  21. My horses ended up in the ice castle and idk how to get them out..major glitch..I can’t get them back to the stables

  22. Are the two-star horses free?

  23. I came over to the stables and found my horse standing between the walls, wearing his saddle (doesn’t that only appear when a sims about to mount it?) It won’t move, and my sims can’t reach it. I’m pretty sure it’s a glitch, but it’s been this way for hours! Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks
