Belgian Draft Horse
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 paints. These are carefully selected on the basis of the specific requirements. Among the most important plastics types we use are polyvinyl chloride (PVC), thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), actrylnitril butadiene styrene (ABS) and other typical plastics for toys. Starting at the material suppliers, there is strict scrutiny from our quality assurance representatives. The paints used are perfectly adapted to the various types of plastic and have the greatest mechanical and chemical resistance. They ensure that Schleich products last a long time and make all of our products resistant to perspiration, saliva and wear – meaning they are completely safe to play with. The product is released for production only when it meets all the laws, standards and guidelines.
