Schleich Andalusian Stallion Figurine. Known as the Spanish horse, the Andalusian is a major influence on modern horse breeds. Bred through history for tribes, traders, cavalry and riding academies throughout the Iberian Peninsula, these horses were prized for their natural balance and agility. Characterized by a bold but willing temperament and strong yet controlled movement, this breed is popular for many events including dressage, bullfighting and pulling carriages. With particularly strong hindquarters, Andalusians move with a high, graceful action. The Andalusian Stallion is a compact horse measuring fifteen to sixteen hands, the unit of measurement for horses in which one hand is equivalent to four inches. Andalusian Stallions were the preferred horses of royalty. Clothed in gray, Andalusian's display elegant strength. Schleich, founded in 1935, has been bringing figurines to life since the 1950's. In the 1980's, Schleich added animal figurines to their famous figurine line including the Smurfs, Snoopy, and the Muppet Show. Schleich animal play worlds span from the lost time of the dinosaurs to domestic and wild animals of the present day.
