If you use Chrome, you must have played the infamous T-Rex runner game that’s built into Chrome and shows up when your internet is not working. 

Horse Runner is the exact thing, except the game is running on your watch instead of a browser and you’re running a horse instead of a T-Rex. It’s pretty colourful and can easily keep you entertained for quite some time.
