Arab mare with blanket
A horse show is an amazing event for horses and riders. The horses’ manes are braided to make them look resplendent on the “big day”. This often results in miniature works of art with enchanting names like fishnet braid, Spanish braid or baroque braid. After braiding, brushing and cleaning, a fly blanket is placed over the Arab mare to protect her against irritating insects, and she is led into the horse box with a handy halter. During the journey to the arena, she is allowed to nibble on delicious apples and beetroot. All of the Schleich figurines are meticulously hand-painted and equipped with the Schleich tag bearing the red S, symbol for highest quality and compliancy with all relevant safety regulations.
