Barbie Horse Adventures: Blue Ribbon Race is the first game of the Barbie Horse Adventures video game series based on the Barbie line of dolls by Mattel. The game was released on the Game Boy Advance in 2003.


Unlike all later games in the Barbie Horse Adventures series, Blue Ribbon Race used 2-D sprites instead of 3-D graphics. The camera used an isometric viewpoint.

The player takes on the role of Barbie and races horses through various tracks of the Primrose Hill Charity Cup.[1] To complete the tracks successfully, Barbie has to collect items along the way.

The game supported multiplayer play by allowing two players to compete in minigames.[2]

Barbie can change into several different sets of clothing, enabling her to play dress-up.[2]
