In Gallop and Ride, you play as a boy or girl who works at his or her grandfather’s ranch known as the Old Mill Ranch. Grandfather gave his grandchild the ranch after him and asked to put it back up to its formal glory. So, in the game, the main objective is to renovate all facilities back up for the guests and clients visiting. The player can choose from a wide variety of outfits. But, can only choose a small portion in the beginning of the game. The player has the option to use to game controls for riding: gesture or control stick. Both are the same as for games such as Paws and Claws: Pet Vet. In gesture, it is somewhat similar towards real-life, with all Wii Remote movement, and in control stick, the player uses the Nunchunk for movement, and clicks on buttons on the Wii Remote for speeding up or slowing down.
