SCHLEICH - 13812 HAFLINGER MARE
Haflingers are extremely placid and patient, which makes them especially popular with beginners to riding and children. Thanks to their friendly, reliable and even-tempered character, they are often used as therapy horses.
The Haflinger, also known as the Avelignese, is a breed of horse developed in Austria and northern Italy (namely the South Tyrol region) during the late nineteenth century. Haflinger horses are relatively small, are always chestnut in color, have distinctive gaits described as energetic but smooth, and are well-muscled yet elegant. The breed traces its ancestry to the Middle Ages; there are several theories for its origin. Haflingers, developed for use in mountainous terrain, are known for their hardiness.
All Schleich figures are lovingly hand-painted with detailed modelling and allow children to learn as they play.
