Schleich - Clydesdale Gelding, Figurine
Clydesdales are large, coldblood horses with long, powerful legs and long, thick hair over their fetlocks. They are intelligent, brave and – despite their size – extremely gentle. Clydesdales are named after the River Clyde that flows through south-west Scotland. Many Clydesdales can be easily identified from their white legs. This hair is also known as “feathering”. These horses often have a brown coat, but they can also be black, sorrel or roan. Clydesdales are often used as draught horses. For instance, they may haul tree trunks through terrain that is too difficult for tractors to traverse. They are easy to train and keen learners. But they’re also excellent horses for riding. However, because the horses are so big, you need special, extra-large saddles to ride them. This figure stands at 12.3cm tall and is made from high quality, softened plastic, making it pleasant to touch, and not too hard.

It is our aim to constantly live up to the image of a developer and supplier of top quality products with an educational aspect. Our products are developed with the assistance of parents, teachers and children and are therefore especially designed for children's hands.

Educational aspects play a more important part than possible sales potential.
