PIKPOK AND RIDE TV PARTNER FOR LAUNCH OF RIVAL STARS HORSE RACING
New Venture Sees Horse Management Game Partner with Equestrian Network
NEW ZEALAND, Wellington and FORT WORTH, Texas, April 26, 2019 - Leading games publisher PikPok® today announced their partnership with RIDE TV, leading television network for equestrian sports and lifestyle content, for their latest title Rival Stars Horse Racing.
Rival Stars Horse Racing brings a complete horse racing experience to mobile. Players can become immersed in the full horse management experience and become a horse breeder, trainer, manager, and jockey. This is the first time PikPok has partnered with a TV network and they are excited to explore these new brand integrations.
“By cross promoting between the game and RIDE TV, our aim is to expose horse and equestrian enthusiasts to new content that is made with their lifestyle and love of horses at heart,” said Edouard Favier, Marketing Director at PikPok. “The audiences for both parties have much in common, and we hope this leads to the discovery of a new way for audiences to enjoy their love of horses.”
RIDE TV is a television network dedicated to providing high-quality programming to those that enjoy and care about all things horse culture and lifestyle. Available on a multitude of providers, viewers can channel their passion for horse lifestyle with an entertaining mix of reality shows, equine event coverage, bull riding, inspiring documentaries and more.

“This is RIDE TV’s first time to integrate into a video game environment,” said Craig Morris, President of RIDE TV. “We are really excited to market to a brand new audience and be involved with a game that aims to fully immerse the user in an equestrian-focused environment. We think our audience will love the game.”
This is PikPok’s second horse management and racing game after the release of 2006’s Melbourne Cup Challenge, which was developed under PikPok’s previous brand Sidhe Interactive. PikPok’s first horse management and racing game for mobile, Rival Stars Horse Racing features a commitment to realistic and cinematic horse racing, including motion-captured horse animations. In the game, players strive to restore their family’s horse racing legacy and bring their ranch back to its former glory.
