Oh, I've got some.
- maybe to be able to select horses with arrow keys or pageup/pagedown keys. I also thought about the 1-9 hotkeys but if the stalls count does go above 10 it would only be useful for like.... 85% of the duration of the game (if you're only keeping level 5 horses during the save).

- being able to cancel the "wanna quit training?" prompt with the ESCAPE key.

- different colours for the "stars" that appear when you hit an arrow during training; either randomized between 2-5 colours or corresponding to the rating you get (good/perfect).

- ability to rename horses or give new colts a custom name (maybe only the ones you acquire via breeding, not buying). And/or keep a choice to use already set names (placing a button named "random" on the horse-naming window).

- add a prompt when selling a horse to basically double-confirm the sale.

- hovering a trophy on the stable would show which race it corresponds to. I already know which is which, and that the higher the level of the horse, the higher the trophy is, but this would a little neat feature to have.

- a complete stats window for the horse, accessed when clicking the lamp (or bucket) on its stall. It would show all their usual stats, but also their equipment between brackets. Something like "Strength: 254/200 (+34 horseshoe, +20 bucket)".

And these would be awesome to have added:
- ability to move horses from stalls, like Altmann from the 5th to the 1st stall. This would make bulk-training (alternating between 4 horses at the same time) quite easier.

- a stats option from the menu or the farm overview (maybe accessed from the infoboard?), showing career stats like:
-- money: maximum amount / how much was spent
-- number of colts: bought / bred
-- races: ran / won
-- potions created, horseshoes forged
-- recipes discovered: potions / horseshoes
-- how many times medicine was used or how much was spent on it
-- cloves picked, rainbows caught

Of course those are only suggestions that don't regard serious features of the game, but would still help with its polishing :)

I currently have 68 hours game time logged. When I finally quested for my first shard I was excited to find...nothing. Did it even work? Where can I find my shards? Couldn my horse turn a different color or sparkle?

It was so incredibly anti-climactic that I had to shut the game off for awhile.

Currently, the only way I can figure you know you have a crystal shard is that the quest disapears. May it be something more visual? A trophy in your horse's stall or an effect on the horse? It takes so long to acheive, isn't it worth a little more than a quest disapearing from the list?

I am also in favor of naming your own horses as other players have suggested.

If you received a Magic Crystal it should appear above one of the buildings in the Farm.

Just checked and I don't see it. The acheivement unlocked and the quest disapeared, so I am pretty sure that I received the magic crystal. I am currently running in 1024 x 768 Beautiful graphics quality on Windows 7. Maybe it is just me?

I'll double check!
Rename horses!!!!!!!!!! Please.

Currently there are technical issues preventing this (old code) but we hope it'll be possible in the near future (next 2 months or so).

I'd like to see some more MP Maps :P

Also, a mode for SP horse races. Have a ranking system etc, and by training in SP you can use that horse with its stats in MP. The stronger, the less it slows down off road, the more agile, sharper turning etc. Just to make it more dynamic.
Currently only the left control stick is mapped for xbox controllers in the race DLC. Would it be possible to map the item use button on the controller so players don't need to hold the controller in one hand and hit the ctrl button on the keyboard with the other?

Perhaps both triggers can serve the same purpose; good for kids and adults alike, very simple controls.

I totally agree,i would like to see the Ctrl botton configured to maybe a back right button on the Xbox controller,if possible. ;)

Also would love to have more tracks,and maybe flexible lap option's with maybe more acheviement's added if possible.You could have an Acheviement for winning say 50 or more race's,just an idea for you guy's to think about. Also you could maybe add a rider to the horse to if that's possible,give's a more life like feel to the race.

Love this game and dlc,i purchased 2 copy's of the race for my friend's as gift's now i must get one copy for my son,not sure if they will play it though. There is so much you can do with this wonderful game guy's.Goodluck and thankyou :unicorn::rainbow::violettOK:

P.S.I would have loved a horse shoe emoticon facing the right way so no luck drain's out ;) sadly to late :(
