The American Saddlebred mare by Schleich® Horse Club carries her head and long tail very high, as is typical for this horse breed. In the past, American Saddlebreds were used as riding and driving horses by the American settlers. Today they are mainly used as show horses. Some not only master step, trot and gallop but also the slow gait and so-called rack gaits. Both are pleasantly soft, four-beat movements.
Fun fact: American Saddlebred breeding originated in the US state of Kentucky.
Schleich products are made of various plastics and dyes, which are carefully selected to meet the respective requirements. Most typically plastics used are polyvinyl chloride (PVC), thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), in addition to other plastics typical for toys. Even the material suppliers are subject to strict controls by our quality officers. The dyes used are optimally adapted to the different types of plastic and demonstrate top-rate mechanical and chemical resistance. They ensure the high durability of Schleich products and make all Schleich pieces saliva and sweat proof as well as abrasion-resistant, and thus ensure that they are completely safe for playing with. Only once a product meets fully all international laws, standards and guidelines for toys is it released for production. All Schleich articles and materials comply with the national and international toy requirements applicable worldwide, as well as the new European Toy Safety Directive 2009/48/EC and DIN EN 71.

We love Schleich's realistic animal figures, a quality toy that stimulates the child's imagination as well as teaching them about animals and wildlife.
