In a new and exciting update, ‘The Sims 4’ introduces the ‘Horse Ranch’ Expansion Pack, which gives players the chance to create their own rustic paradise inspired by the great American West. Whether it’s a cozy cottage or a modern farmhouse, players can customize their ranch life, complete with majestic horses, cute little goats, and mini sheep. After the release of the expansion pack, players can saddle up and immerse themselves in the wonderful country lifestyle.
Life at work
Enter Chestnut Ridge, inspired by the wide skies of the famous American West. From traditional cottages to modern farmhouses, players can wake up to views of the countryside from their dream farm. The ‘Horse Farming’ expansion pack allows players to welcome horses into their Sims’ families, taking care of every aspect of their lives. Each animal contributes to the farm in a unique way, making every moment on the farm feel authentic and meaningful.
Bonding with animals
Players can form lasting bonds with their animal friends, including horses and their beloved foals, who are part of a Sim’s family. Sims can interact with both their horses and other horses, with special interactions that enhance the relationship. In addition, Sims can breed mini sheep and mini goats for simoleons, showing the variety of farming activities available.
Join a thriving community
While ranch life can offer moments of peace and solitude, players can saddle up their horses and venture into town to experience a lively social scene. From meeting friends at the local bar to dancing in a dance hall or training at an equestrian park, players can engage with an active community. Special events like Ranch Gatherings and Ranch Animal Days allow Sims to meet others and show off their favorite animals.
Create, breed and raise horses
The long-awaited addition of ponies to ‘The Sims 4’ will allow players to fully customize their hatted companions in Create a Sim or purchase new ponies by rescuing, breeding or buying them. From real-world breeds to the horse’s physical attributes, players have the freedom to create their own peerage. Foals can be born on the farm, giving players a unique and exciting experience as they raise these young horses with their own personality and character.
Explore beautiful trails and compete
Players can take winding trails or venture into the active New Appaloosa in the Ranches area. Popular spots include Riders’ Glen and Galloping Gulch, perfect for horseback riding, the National Park neighborhood and scenic trails and picnic areas. Sims can challenge themselves by exploring the Dreadhorse Caves. Equestrian Center competitions test a horse’s ability in temperament, direction, jumping and endurance, with wins earning prizes and recognition.
Accept the importance of culture
‘The Sims 4 Horse Ranch’ expansion pack embraces the cultural significance of horses, collaborating with passionate reader Stacey Parshall Jensen to include elements of Native American culture.
