Lucky Imogen received an awesome surprise from her friends at Schleich, the Horse Club Riding Centre, the latest addition to their Horse Club collection.
I’m not quite sure what I expected but the box is huge and the contents extensive. The horse stable itself does need assembly which, at times, does need a bit of brute strength but it doesn’t take long and the instructions are very clear and detailed.
When assembled there are four indoor stables and four outdoor paddocks for horses with the centre part of the roof being able to lift off completely to create an open air riding arena. There are two horses (horse and foul) included as well as a rider figure and tonnes of accessories which include troughs, saddles, a bridle, hay bales and a sheet of stickers to enable you to personalise your riding centre just the way you want it.
Something Imogen loves about the riding centre is that she was able to move gates and fences as well as the roof so that it could work around her play. Either making small, individual paddocks for the horses or one large one for horse shows and competitions.
Another thing she loved was the attention to detail, which is the same with all Schleich toys, the horses are beautiful as is the building itself. She was impressed that the stable doors open as they should and have little working locks!
As you expect from Schleich the quality is also amazing and in my opinion it’s well worth it’s £99.99 price tag. It’s really extended the play value of her other Schleich figures including other Horse Club figures and she’s had hours and hours of enjoyment from it already and I expect this to continue.
