See look how popular showjumping was in the 1980’s. There was even a Commodore 64 game – “Harvey Smith Showjumper“. And the copyright issues – possibly the BBC wanting to do their own Showjumping game for the BBC Model B (imagine) meant they could not use the Horse Of The Year Show music.

The screen shots make it look rubbish. Horses never looked good on those early computers. That said I don’t imagine the version on the current Olympics game is any better. It is unclear for the grabs but the game seems to ignore the hill?

And in tomorrows showjumping update, we will talk all about THE HILL.
