    From now until September, Lord__Xemnas, Arwenden and I are building Lon Lon Ranch (from Ocarina of Time) in PushStart.

    Available things you can do:

    Buy premium horses
    The best horses, they will be the fastest, best looking, etc.

    Buy animal products for great prices
    Being a ranch, we also sell various farm/animal products, such as carrots, potatoes, chicken, pork, steak, etc.

    Sign up for an Equestrianism class, taught by myself.
    I can teach you everything I've learned about horses. While you may think it's a good idea to go to minecraftwiki, I'll tell you the practical way to keep yourself and your equestrian friend happy.

    Horse races every week!
    After buying your horse, train it and race it for a chance to win prizes! It will have fence jumping parkour! If you do not wish to buy a horse, you can use one of our own horses. But be warned: You won't know its stats.

    Jumping contests every week!
    Contests to see how high your horse can jump. The objective is to try to jump over fences into a cell. There is a chest in the cell with the prize. Each contestant gets three tries. Whoever makes it into the cell, wins! (If multiple people are able to make it into the cell, then there is a tie-breaker horse-racing match)

    Thank you for reading, please post feedback!

    The only reason I am allowing this to stay in the events forum is because of signing up for horse classes. Otherwise I would think this would go in the trade forum or in the PushStart town thread. Another staff member may come along and decide differently, so be wary of that. And good luck with the project.

    Thank you. I put it in the Events forum since it is a grand opening of something big.

    Edited first post by adding a service/events! Also, I may post design screenshots soon, depending on whether Lord__Xemnas is okay.

    So I can order horses and you can take care of them for me? ;p So I can ride parcours and so on when I want to?

    That would be amazing!
    And I would like to help build (mats and so on).

    Is it only in pushstart? Like will you make different branches of this thoroughout different times? Cause unless transportation from pushstart to town is included in the price people might not want to buy a horsey :p

    (Seeing as mirasol(I think) is on the other side of the map from pushstart :p)

    Maybe they can offer to ride the horse to the town for you, but it increases the price? Same goes for naming and horse armour.

    As well as that maybe you want your horse to stay there for events (like I want mine to be), such as racing tracks.

    I'm glad this sparked so much positive attention! To answer your question Ngen, it will primarily be at Pushstart. I'm debating whether we should have it in other towns. And it would be great if you helped Arwen, because the whole thing would require a lot of mats.... primarily hardened clay, spruce wood, hay bales...
    Since you want to help Arwen, I'll add you to me and Xem's convo.
    @Ngen hm... I didn't consider that. Maybe we can have delivery. But most horse training and stuff should happen at the Ranch, it is designed to be a safe haven for them :')
    Well, from what I've learned in my Equestrianism studies, I don't think you can quite "joust" :p You can sword fight while on horses, but that's it

    yeah i'm too lazy to get bring a horse all the way back hook me up with one amigo! Also you've seen me build so if any helps needed come to moi.

    Personally, if I were you, do it. Once selling someone the horse, there is always the matter of the customer having to take the horse back to the desired location. The more shops you have dotted around the world the more convenient it would be for them. Defo set one up in Anvil :D

    I'd probably only be able to put the corral or something, the class is exclusive to Pushstart :p

    All of mirasols horses were wiped/ despawned including ones that were named, armored, or saddled. Hopefully the same didn't happen to you guys :(

    Jaco tells me that all the horses in the server were wiped. I'm a bit worried, because if this happens often, our businesses will tank. So, to answer your question James, we won't be able to get your horse, or anyone's horse atm. We actually need to set up first... I'm having trouble figuring out ways to keep the ranch secure, to keep lunatics from getting in and butchering all our fine stock.
