Ghostlight announces game collaboration with Gold Medal winner, Mary King

Bishops Stortford – March 19th, 2008 – Ghostlight Ltd., Up-and-coming publisher Ghostlight is pleased to announce MARY KING’S RIDING SCHOOL, a virtual horse riding game developed exclusively for the Nintendo DS™.

The game, which launches this May in the UK, opens the stable doors on one of the most aspirational riding schools of the equestrian world. With personal tuition from five time gold medal winner, Mary King, players can learn to care for, train and compete with their horse. Taking part in international events across the globe, riders will need to master the three major equestrian disciplines; dressage, cross-country and show jumping.

Standards are impeccably high at Mary King’s Riding School, but help is on hand as Mary teaches players the fine art of manoeuvring and jumping their horse using the intuitive Nintendo DS control system. As players progress they’ll be able to enter international three-day events in six different countries, winning trophies and spending the prize money on clothes, accessories and horses. Mary King’s Riding School scores perfectly in every area.

The player has the opportunity to create their character’s own distinctive style and look, before heading to the paddock to select their new horses breed and, of course, name them.

In the stables there’s a tack room to saddle the horse, and adorn them in the finest bridlery, saddles and tail ribbons. Here riders will be taught how to care for and brush their horse before and after each event; the more you love your horse the more they will love you back.

“Mary King’s Riding School is a huge achievement and I have no doubt the beginning of a global franchise for Ghostlight. It’s great to be able to give young DS owners the chance to live the dream and compete at the highest level in International three day Eventing. It’s also been an honour to work with the World Championship winning equestrian Mary King, who plays an integral role in the game” comments Marketing Account Manager, Adrian Clews.
