Lipizzaner stallions are highly spirited animals. That’s why only stallions are trained in the Spanish Riding School’s dressage movements. When stallions perform difficult “airs” like the capriole or the crowd-pleasing levade (standing upright on the hind legs), it looks far more fiery and dynamic than when mares or geldings do them. Fun fact-A Lipizzaner stallion’s training at the Spanish Riding School lasts several years.
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.
