Welcome to Counter Canter

Come for the ponies, stay for the people

Counter Canter is an equine sim game, a hybrid of forum-based play and thoughtfully automated features. Opened in 2022, Counter Canter is a simulation both captivating yet playable for the busy adult.

If you’re new to sim games, welcome! Counter Canter is a forum-based game with a custom website that allows you to create, breed, and show the horses of your dreams. For example, banking (using fake sim money) happens on the main site along with the horse registry but negotiating sales and entering events happens on our very active forum.

The seasoned simmer will find their home here as well. The game has a unique balance between realism and sim compromises, automation and interaction amongst members. Members help drive the direction of the game and we’ve put a lot of thought - years in the making - into getting things *just* right.
