    Episode 1

    Quite an amusing way to start, thinking of an exam as a horse race. But speed isn't all that matters here as Special Week was first to hand it in, but missing every question in the process. Cute short this is with the girls being horses in many different ways.

      And now, it's a crash course Tracen Academy, and while some of it was informative, others not so much. Some of the girls there just don't realize what being a student there is all about.

        Episode 3

        Life as a celebrity isn't exactly over-the-top as some girls think. Such is the case with City as while a couple of her fans envy her, it turns out that she's just like everybody else as it just so happens that she attends Tracen Academy. At least the girls are getting their money's worth there taking part in a photo shoot, while getting to interact with her more than they thought they would.

          Episode 4

          And now I remember that the winning horses must put on an idol performance after the race, so here is a musical that will go a long way into helping the girls sing and not make a fool of themselves like Special Week did the first time she made the podium. T.M. Opera O is quite the appropriate name there seeing that she's a pro at this.

            And they're off, racing to down a huge bowl of ramen. Special Week decides to eat the noodles first and then the topping. While it appears that Special Week and Oguri Cap have a photo finish, Oguri Cap drank the soup, while Special Week left it, so Oguri wins. QUite a silly race that was.

              And it's now time for an "elegant" lunch as the three girls don't exactly understand what the concept of elegance is. It ought to be a meal at a ritzy restaurant while wearing those extravagant dresses that are worn only on such occasions. But nope, it's just a meal at a cheap beef bowl restaurant while wearing their school unis, and they think the bigger, the better in terms of elegance. It's fine to eat there, but applying the elegant label is quite misleading.

                Just because you're first doesn't mean you won't be last.

                Someone really loves attention.

                Re: Episode 3

                The photo near the end really brought it all together.

                Re: Episode 4

                This was way more amazing than is allowed.

                Re: Episode 5

                Ramen is a serious event. Horse Girls are very competitive.

                  There's nothing like an old summertime tradition of catching rhino beetles. While kicking the trees will knock off quite a lot of beetles, it also could drop something unwanted, like a swarm of hornets. It's a good thing these girls are built to run as they took a dip in the ocean rather than come away covered in bee stings.

                    And the horse girls sentai team assembles. Just one problem, actually more than that, in that the team has two pinks. And on top of that, the blue one is a sleepyhead, and the villain is complaining too much about not battling one-on-one. Pretty quirky how that turned out.

                      Episode 9

                      These horse girls are trained to be idols seeing that those who finish on the podium must put on a show by tradition. But one of them is thinking much bigger than that trying to recruit others to form an idol group of five. And she does just that, though getting Ines to join required chasing her down.

                        Getaway Sisters are great and wow the episode was like a backstory for the third ending too.

                          It's the time-honored summer tradition, the courage test. But of course, crazy things happen, and this one is no different as the ones making the woods spooky are having a fun time teasing all the brave horses who dare venture there, especially since those girls can really run as if their life depended on it.

                            "What are you talking about? That never happened" Few episodes of this nature can resist a scene like that. Heck come to think of it there was anime series (that I never finished) which doubled down on that.

                              That's so like those girls to be part of a movie like that. Quite the amusing backdrop that was.
