Become Part of the HORSE CLUB and Experience Exciting Horse Adventures with the New App and HORSE CLUB Toys from Schleich (Review) #ILikeSchleich and #HCOnTheGo

Disclosure:  I was sent samples from the vendor in exchange for an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.

"Horse Club fans can now “ride along” like never before through an interactive Horse Club Horse Adventure app and Horse Club membership program that place the line’s main characters and their horses front and center for new adventures."


One of the reasons I love where we live here in CT is that our house in nestled behind a horse farm.  Throughout the year, we can look out our window and see the owners teaching new riders how to ride a horse to control a horse drawn carriage or sleigh in the winter.  It really is a sight to see, and one of the reasons I don't see us ever moving.  After having lived in cities while in college and shortly thereafter, I am happy to be back living in a country setting and raising my two girls.  I am not alone in loving being so close to a horse farm.  Ever since my girls were little, they have enjoyed visiting with the horses out in the pasture, or walking through the stables to check out the boarded horses.  




They bring along carrots and apples to entice the horses to come closer so that they can pet them, and admire them up close.  And, when they do come close, both of my girls smile and get excited as they love horses.  My youngest is hoping that soon she will be able to take riding lessons like a couple of her friends, and learn all about horse care at this farm.  Maybe Santa will be working on making this dream a reality. :-)

As my youngest waits for riding pants and boots and lessons, she is learning all about horses through the fun new Horse Club Horse Adventure App, which recently releases.  Here is more about this super fun app, which is available for download through the Apple App Store, Google Play Store and the Amazon App Store.

Like I said, my girls have been enjoying this new app, which I downloaded to their Android phones, as well as added to the iPad they share. Within a few minutes of playing, they were both hooked, and this app has been their go to app when they earn phone time each week. They both love how the app is set up for you to complete tasks and missions, as well as collect valuable horseshoes and train for shows and competitions. It was like a having a real horse, but without the need for a stable or boarding fees. :-) And, when the girls weren't busy completing missions and training, they were able to gain more horse knowledge through quiz questions. This is what really amazed me about this new app, as my girls had no real knowledge of horses before playing this app, and within a hour of use, it was like they were horse experts, and sharing so much about horses with me. I guess Santa has to work extra hard to make my daughter's wish for horse riding lessons a reality, as they will already have a leg up thanks to this game and all that she is learning.

Another fun feature of this new app is that you can bring your HORSE CLUB Schleich figurines to life, which I have to say it super cool.

"Among the Horse Club products launching this month are figurine sets of Hannah & Cayenne, Sofia & Blossom, Lisa & Storm, and Sarah & Mystery. Also new for 2019 is the expansive Large horse stable with house and stable, Schleich’s largest playset to date. The new human figurines have articulated arms and legs for more realistic movements and enhanced creative play."


We were sent a few of the new HORSE CLUB horses with riders toys to review, and when my girls weren't setting up their horse barns and stables on the living room floor to act out their own Lakeside adventures with their toys, they were bringing them to life with the help of the app's stories and games that they had played.



It is nice when toys have a dual purpose like this -- they can be played with so that your kids can use their creativity and imagination to tell their own stories one minute, and then the next can use their tech gadgets like a phone or tablet and bring them to life right before their eyes.




The first time the girls did this with the app, they were blown away and in awe. It was so magical my youngest daughter told me to see her favorite new horse toys from Schleich come alive on the screen and she could take it through the different missions and riding routes, as if it were a real horse.




If your kids love horses, or have ever wondered what it would be like to ride or care for a horse, this app would be perfect for them.  My girls have only done pony rides and petted the horses at the horse farm behind our house, but after playing this new game for about a week now, they both talk about horses and riding as if they have done lessons or own a horse.  And, their imaginative play time with their new HORSE CLUB Schleich is so realistic with the stories they are acting out, and then when you pair it with the different horse play and care features of the app, it opens up a whole new adventure for horse play for kids of all ages.

I could go on and on about how great the new Horse Club Horse Adventure app is, as are the new HORSE CLUB toys from Schleich, but instead, why don't you download this app (Free for the Android app, and a $3.99 one-time membership fee for the iOS and Amazon download) to try out with that special horse lover in your life, and see for yourself, why my girls and so many other horse lovers who have downloaded and played the app, love it!  And, you must pick up at least one of the new HORSE CLUB toys from Schleich to play outside the app, as you kids will be excited to see the horses they have been creating and riding with the app, are available to own from Schleich for continued playtime fun, at home and on the go. This is just another toy I wish they had when I was little, as I would have loved playing with it with my friends.  But, at least my girls let me get some horse play in with them, so its all good! :-)



You can learn more about the new Horse Club Horse Adventure from Blue Ocean here, and the new Schleich HORSE CLUB toy line here.  I can't wait to hear what you think of the app and horse toys (which really do look realistic with the hand painted features), so be sure to share your thoughts in the comments section below.



In addition to the app, Schleich is offering a variety of Horse Club-themed activities online at HorseClub.com and on social media, including promotional videos and takeovers by each of the Horse Club girls. Join the fun by following Schleich on TwitterFacebookInstagram and YouTube.

Happy riding!

  1. That's kind of cool looking. My little one is a little too young for it at this point, but he might be into it in a year or two. Thank you for sharing!

  2. I like this! Growing up my cousin Tracy, who also lives in CT now was and still is, crazy about horses! She would have loved something like this when she was younger as she now shows horses and has a few of her own.
