Saige's Horse Item# F2257 $94
Saige learned how to ride horses when she was a little girl. This horse looks just like her grandma's beautiful horse, Picasso. His right leg, neck, and head are all movable—your girl will really be able to imagine Saige is riding in the parade! He has a velvety, cream-colored coat with gray speckles, and his light-brown mane and tail can be brushed and styled. Plus, he comes with a halter and bridle with shiny diamond accents for leading him.
We didn't buy Picasso, but I took some photos of his different movements so we could see what all he does.
His neck moves up and back. His right front leg moves at the shoulder and the knee.
He's covered with stretchy material (not flocked) so that he can move easier. I don't think his halter comes off.

Saige's horse is beautiful! A bit off-scale, perhaps, but still amazing. Mine is no longer a boy (gasp!), but for reviewing purposes, I will refer to her as a 'he' here. He is covered with a wonderful soft, stretchy material and his head and leg move easily. His mane and tail hair is silky, soft and great for styling! It sheds a little at first, but I think it will be okay after the first few brushes. His bridle opens and closes with velcro in two places and it is very easy to adjust or remove it if/when needed. He stands well on his own, even on thick carpet! Grade: A+
Since there was some interest in comparing Picasso and Jackson, I decided to post here as well.
Picasso's left legs seem a bit closer to one another. I also very much like how stretchy his coat is. It makes it very easy to move his neck up and down, as well as his 2 leg joints. I was nervous that he would be unstable, but that is not the case. I really like that his bridle is removable, but it does make me wonder why the GOTY dogs don't have removable collars....Anyway, I am so happy that I got him, and I also give this guy an A+
