The Andalusian is a racy, elegant horse.  Actually the breed is called "Pura razza espanola", in English "pure Spanish breed".  In the 15th century, monks began to breed the Andalusians in the south of Spain.  With its graceful appearance, it enchanted especially nobles and kings.  Therefore, only few would guess that the Andalusian has long been used as a cavalry horse.  Although it was always known for his courage and strength, it is rather their elegance that distinguishes it.  It is a unique dressage horse and even dominates the famous leap into the air, which is otherwise known only from the higher riding school of the Lipizzaner horse.

Fun fact:  The Andalusian is known for the elegant curve of its neck.

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.
