Image Title: Diamondstar
Name: Diamondstar Barn Name: Diamond Breed: Jorvik Warmblood Diamond is Riley's special boy. He's quiet, well-mannered and reasonable, but it takes him awhile to be confident with a new rider and while students are always safe on him, only Riley gets the best out of him. He's got a wise, intelligent presence; many of the riders (Riley included) have found themselves often standing outside his stall, telling him their problems and dilemmas as though expecting a response.

Image Title: Miststar
Name: Miststar Barn name: Misty Breed: Jorvik Starter Pony Misty draws new riders in with her adorable appearance - pudgy, soft-eyed, and fluffy, she's everything a pony should be. Misty is devious, however; she is a rite of passage for ambitious young riders. She's quick, smart, and a very comfortable ride, but a moment's complacency can land you in the dirt. She is very food-motivated and if she sees someone walking around the stable with treats while she's with a rider she doesn't necessarily respect, all bets are off.

Image Title: Cherryberry
Name: Cherryberry Barn name: Cherry Breed: Connemara Cherry is a clear favorite among Riley's students. Small though she is, she's definitely a competition horse - fast and agile, she'll jump anything you put in front of her. She's also got very smooth gaits and an honest disposition. Her biggest flaw is her skittishness; she's spooky in new situations, and sudden movements or sights surprise her. She's very sweet and capable, though, and really wants to work with her rider.

Image Title: Tigerblaze
Name: Tigerblaze Barn name: Tiger Breed: Pintabian Tiger is...an acquired taste. If you're a thrill seeker, there's no one in the stable more fun than she is - she's 0 to 60 in the blink of an eye, and the more you run her, the happier she'll be with you. She'll jump anything and fear is not in her vocabulary. She's also extremely headstrong; trying to limit her to the dressage ring, or showing any sign of hesitation, is a surefire way to get into a battle of wills with her that you won't win.

Image Title: Winterghost
Name: Winterghost Barn Name: Ghostie Breed: Jorvik Wild Horse We found Ghostie in the Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur, and in the beginning, he made us nervous. He was big, wild, and imbued with a strange magical energy. Having just trained Loki, we braced ourselves for another challenge. It turns out, though, that Ghostie is easily the safest and sanest horse in our barn. This giant is the one we trust kids and beginners with - he's completely bombproof. You have to try to fall off of him. More experienced riders get frustrated by his lackadaisical nature (getting him to inject any sense of urgency into anything he does is an uphill battle) but he is an invaluable friend for newbies and those who need to regain their confidence. We are really lucky to have this sage spirit in our stable!

Image Title: Snakeeye
Name: Snakeeye Barn name: Loki Breed: Morgan Loki is the most difficult horse in the barn, easily. Riley doesn't let most students ride him - he is her own cross to bear. He's not outright headstrong, like Tigerblaze; Loki is unpredictable and conniving. He'll feign complete agreeability until he sees his opportunity, and then he'll bolt. He learns his rider's tricks just as his rider learns his. Riley likes to joke that you can't form a friendship with Loki - only a temporary alliance which he will eventually decide has outweighed its usefulness. The catch-22 is that Loki is easily the fastest horse in the stable. If you catch him on a good day, he's undefeatable, and he could jump the moon. So Riley and her students will continue trying to forge uneasy allegiances with him, and hope he doesn't kill anyone in the meantime...

Image Title: Stormborn
Name: Stormborn Barn name: Stormy Breed; Chincoteague Pony Stormy washed up on Jorvik in a shipwreck, which seems to be the fate of her kind. She's the starter pony for most young riders who take up Riley's tutelage; she's gentle, mild-mannered, and docile. She does not like the chaos of competitions; she prefers quiet arenas and trail rides. Originally, Riley adopted her because, frankly, she wasn't very expensive, and needed a home - but the pony has since grown on her, and she has found Stormy's sweet nature a welcome contrast to Misty's, well... un-sweetness.
savannahriverfish120: Does anyone have any negative opinions on the jorvik pony? it's one of the few horses I don't have.

The Magic of Winter December 07, 2023
Hey, Starfam! A snowfall has dusted Jorvik in a powdered-sugar coating, turning it into a sweet, winter dreamscape. Sleighs are dotted around the land, ready to whisk you away to the magical Winter Village!
But something’s not right!
The Winter Village lacks luster. A dullness has tinged its usual sparkle. A mischievous capran has broken the most magical winter crystal that harnessed all of winter's magic! Winter Magic has scattered across the village and things have gotten a bit chaotic, leaving the energy wild and unbalanced. It must be restored and only you can bring the Winter Village back to its former charm!
You must restore the crystal by collecting magic and channeling it properly! Winter Magic is bestowed upon those who participate in any of the numerous winter activities.
First, meet the Mischievous Capran in the Winter Village, where he will attempt to explain himself and start you on your journey.
Winter Activities Collecting Winter Magic doesn’t only restore the crystal, it also rewards Jorvik Shillings, Horse XP, Player XP, Tokens, clothes, or tack! There are many activities, new and old, to partake in:
★ Ice carving with Alex. Create a frosty masterpiece!
★ Weather reports show that the blizzards have returned! Help your fellow Jorvegians survive the snow crisis. Two snow storms will appear per day and rotate every hour so you have multiple opportunities to catch them both.
★ Collect magical snowflakes around the Winter Village to earn Winter Magic
★ Ride through snow piles
★ Randomized festivities in the Winter Village. These festivities shuffle every hour. So make sure to return often to complete them all! These can be found around Jorvik, but most are found in the Winter Village. Don’t miss the Penguin Concert and Stargazing which have been revamped this year!
The Yule Tree Step into the Winter Village and what could there be? Six wrapped presents sitting under the tree!
Visit the Yule Tree at the center of the Winter Village each day in December to unwrap a new treat. There are six gifts already waiting for you! Don’t worry if you miss a day, gifts will remain wrapped and waiting until you return. Just don’t forget to collect them all before the Wednesday update on January 10th!
Frost-Fueled Excitement The exhilarating Fast and Frosty Race, along with the Winter Village Race, are back! Gear up for an unforgettable winter racing experience.
New Game Onboarding! Our new players can enjoy a brand-new beginning to the game. This longer introduction takes you to a brand-new location, the Riding Camp! This content will match the quality of quests we make today and represents the excitement of the game to come. Players can now meet the Soul Riders at the very beginning of their Star Stable journey.
Any players who have not completed the old onboarding quests, will be reset so they can enjoy the full experience.
New Starter Tack Of course brand-new onboarding must come with an upgraded starter tack for your horse! Everyone who still has their starter tack will have theirs replaced with the new one. The original tack is now for sale at Marley’s Farm if you’re feeling nostalgic. Also, in case you deleted your starter tack, the new one is available for all in the Global Shop. Both will be at a lower price!
Retrofitting tack The Icelandic, Shire and Arabian will now be able to wear more items in game as we have retrofitted tack to be compatible with these breeds! We cannot wait to see all of your in-game pictures and edits with more outfits.
Bonus Shop! A new item is available in the Moorland Bonus Shop to all of you who became Star Rider by one-time payment! This feline Night Rider is a rebel at heart! Kitt is the perfect mix of adorable and adventurous!
Coming NEXT WEEK! The return of magic beckons newfound companions to the Winter Village. Encounter the charm of two sweet and frosty horses, the delightful Lebkuchen and the frost-kissed Vetle, accompanied by their companions, Gumdrop and Murrlan!
Have a cozy week!
Love from your Star Stable Team ♥
