Schleich¨ figurines are modelled in the finest detail to help children learn while they play. 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.
