Barbie Horse Adventures: Mystery Ride is the second game of the Barbie Horse Adventures video game series based on the Barbie line of dolls by Mattel. The game was released on Microsoft Windows in 2003.


Mystery Ride is the first game in the Barbie Horse Adventures series to use 3-D graphics.

The plot involves Barbie having to solve the mystery of the missing horse of Barbie's friend Teresa. To do so, the player, as Barbie, has to explore the countryside, consisting of varied terrain ranging from forest to desert, while solving logic puzzles.

The core gameplay is based around equestrianism, including feeding, grooming, and training horses.

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


Common Sense Media gave Mystery Ride 4 out of 5 stars, complimenting the horse riding as "amazingly realistic" and saying that the game overall was "very satisfying to play".[2]
