There are rewards for logging in daily which become increasingly more valuable as you build up a login streak. If you miss a day your streak is broken and you go back to receiving the less valuable ones.
Tack and clothing, which cost premium currency, can be purchased both individually and in bundles. Some bundles are advertised as limited time only.
Winning competitions awards 1-3 ribbons depending on performance. These are displayed in your horses profile.
Some tack items are sponsored by real brands, this is not clearly disclosed by the game. They are displayed the same way the fictional brands are.
The game has a currency called Equestrian Coin or E-Coin. You can get it for free, in very small amounts, by logging in daily but the primary way of obtaining it is by paying real money.
Horses have energy that is used up when training, competing, and breeding. It regenerates over time but you can also use carrots (an in-game currency) to skip the regeneration period & immediately refill their energy. The game gives you a set amount (determined by the level of your Silo building) of free carrots each day. If you run out of them and still want to skip the regen period you can then purchase more using the paid in-game currency.
Training horses in the Riding Hall makes the horse unavailable for a period of time ranging from 3 Minutes to 8 hours, this can be skipped using premium currency. Breeding horses makes the mare unavailable for her gestation period, the exact length of time is determined by the level of your breeding facility. For example my level 5 facility has a gestation period of 3 days and 14 hours.
The horse market resets every couple hours, meaning "if you see a horse you like, don't hesitate to buy it, it'll be gone soon!"
The horse market system is designed so you may check in multiple times a day.
You get an award when you complete a competition.
