Lucas M. Thomas writes for IGN:
"It's time for this design to die. This same, shallow horseback riding design has appeared as a mini-game piece of several recent THQ-published titles and has never been compelling. And it's at its worst here, where the entire game design builds up to its reveal by locking down even the possibility of riding until you've invested a ridiculous amount of tedious caretaking time. Ugh. It's exasperating. Don't go anywhere near this game. Let's Ride? Let's not."
