The Tennessee Walker moves not only classy and elegant, it is also very soft and comfortable to ride. The reason for this are its gaits: the "Walk" and the "Running Walk" (= "race pace"). The horse makes such long steps that the rear hoof touches down well before the imprint of the front hoof. Hallmark of the Tennessee Walker is also the Canter, a slight, slow gallop. Here, the horse stretches its head far out, which is somewhat reminiscent of a rocking horse. Because of its gaits and its quiet nature, it is popular as for trail riding and as a show horse.

Competence and Experience - these two elements have been the basis of our company since we started as a supplier to the plastic industry. Friedrich Schleich founded the company in 1935. The now famous Schleich figurines first came to life in the 1950's.
The design of the Schleich products and the creation of the required tools are done in house, thus enabling us to control the initial vital steps of creating a new product. The production itself takes place at the company`s German headquarters and in a number of production facilities in foreign countries. Our products are marketed world wide.
