Welcome to HORSE CLUB
It all began the day before Hannah’s 12th birthday. Hannah was in the barn with her friends Sofia, Lisa and Sarah. While practising lassoing, the girls discovered a mysterious chest with the letters ….H ..C… on the lid.
Hannah opened the chest with her penknife – and the friends were absolutely astonished. Inside the chest were photos of horses and a mysterious map. They thought they already knew every last inch of Lakeside:
But what could be the meaning of the red X on the map between Lakeside Riding Stable and Peppertree Woods? The friends saddled their horses and galloped off – determined to get to the bottom of the mystery.

Hannah & Cayenne
Hannah lives with her parents and sister Mia in Lakeside, as the beautiful area around the riding centre is known. She is full of curiosity and always looking for new adventures. True to this spirit, her motto is “Why …?”. When Hannah grows up, she wants to be a vet, just like her mum. Together with Sofia, Lisa and Sarah, she discovered a mysterious chest the day before her 12th birthday. It led them to an old caravan that became the secret meeting place for HORSE CLUB. Ever since, Hannah and her horse Cayenne have gone on new adventures every day with the Schleich HORSE CLUB. Why is Cayenne so excited? Is there a new secret to uncover?
Cayenne is Hannah’s quarter horse. Hannah and Cayenne are an unbeatable team in western riding. No wonder, given that Cayenne’s previous owner was a real-life cowboy. Cayenne especially loves it when Hannah comes to the stable bright and early to feed him. She always sings to herself while she’s doing it. Just like Hannah, Cayenne loves adventures and enjoys exploring Lakeside and the surrounding area. Whatever mystery will Hannah and Cayenne discover next?
Lisa & Strom
“Come on, let’s do it!” Lisa’s friends often hear these words coming out of her mouth. Lisa is the sportiest of the four HORSE CLUB girls and is always in a good mood. Whenever there’s a new secret to uncover, she and her Hanoverian, Storm, are always at the centre of the action. When they’re not investigating mysteries, the two of them do a lot of training so that they can compete in tournaments in Lakeside. Will Lisa and Storm win the next showjumping tournament?
Storm is Lisa’s horse, a Hanoverian. He loves showing off his skills and winning prizes at horse shows in Lakeside. Storm is a very talented jumper. It’s an ability he inherited from his father. His favourite obstacle is water jumps. But will his stubbornness cost him points at the next tournament?
Sofia & Blossom
Just imagine … that’s how Sofia’s stories normally start. Sofia is very creative and likes to decorate everything around her with flowers and other pretty things. She got some of them from Blossom’s owner, Anna Collins, who gives Sofia small thank-you gifts from her frequent trips abroad. Sofia also designed the HORSE CLUB logo and the four friends’ wristbands. What do you reckon Sofia will think up next?
Blossom loves it when Sofia brushes her mane. The 20-year-old Andalusian mare feels very content being looked after by Sofia. Her owner Anna Collins travels a lot and has no time. With Sofia, Blossom gets to daydream a little each day. But if HORSE CLUB needs them, the two of them will quickly come back down to earth. What new stories will Sofia and Blossom soon have to tell?
Sarah & Mystery
Sarah is very smart and perceptive. She can write amazing songs and poems. Her favourite word, “magic”, appears in them a lot. She and Mystery (the alert, observant horse she looks after as if she were her own) love galloping across the fields of Lakeside, wild and free. They make an amazing team, since they understand each other perfectly. People say the two of them are finely attuned. Sarah doesn’t like being alone, so it’s good that her HORSE CLUB friends are already planning the next meeting. You should come too!
Mystery is a mare that Sarah looks after for her owner, Edith Jacobs. Mystery likes to strut her stuff in the dressage arena. She also likes exploring Peppertree Woods with Sarah. When she gallops to the HORSE CLUB Caravan, her mane and tail streaming behind her, it’s an incredible sight to behold. Will she uncover another secret there with Sarah?
