The Schleich figures are modelled with attention to detail, hand-painted with care, and provide educationally valuable playtime. In Germany, Hanoverians have been successfully bred and advanced according to the highest standard since 1735. The Hanoverian is a typical, modern-day sport horse in rectangular format (longer than high). The Hanoverian is characterised by an excellent motion, predestined for the great sport. It can be trained for both dressage and show jumping at the highest level and is considered teachable, attentive, balanced, but also spirited. Schleich manufacture amazingly wonderful accurate models of all sorts of animals, including this Hanoverian Mare model. All Schleich models are beautifully hand painted to give wonderful role play to children and also make a great collectors item for the nature enthusiast.
