Horseland is an US-American animated series produced by DIC Entertainment. It is a comic mischief program following events in the lives of a group of children riding at Horseland, an equestrian school and stables. Their adventures include riding, and raising and entering their horses in competitions. The show premiered on September 16, 2006 as part of CBS's new Saturday morning cartoon block, KOL Secret Slumber Party on CBS (now Cookie Jar TV). Concurrent with the series, the online virtual pet game that it was based upon was updated to complement the show by launching a new "Junior version" of the game based on the program and featuring its various characters and locations. After three seasons, the show's original run ended on CBS on September 19, 2009. Reruns of Horseland then aired nationwide on the digital subchannel This TV; two episodes aired each weekend until September 2010.[1] As of February 5, 2011 Horseland is again part of Cookie Jar TV on CBS. It has 7 books for the series related to the episodes. The books can be purchased online.

Characters[edit]

The characters of Horseland are usually limited to the group of kids who are frequently at the stable. However, some episodes (especially those which involve travelling), introduce onetime characters as a plot device.

Sarah Whitney and Scarlet[edit]

Sarah (voiced by Dana Donlan ) is a 12-year-old girl who likes to make friends. She often gets emotional, but is very friendly around others and loves to do her best and have fun. She comes from a rich family, but does not consider herself better than others because of it. Sarah has blonde wavy hair with bleached highlights and light blue eyes. She also has silver hoop earrings with silver studs in her ears. Sarah's shown to wear a red riding jacket with a matching red necktie in most episodes. She has been seen in younger ages and different hairstyles in flashbacks.

Sarah's horse is Scarlet, a black Arabian mare who has a long, black mane and tail with red stripes. Scarlet is fearless, level-headed, and regal, but at times can be moody and prefer to be left alone. She is patient and loving, much like her owner, and is great with the other kids. Her symbol is a red crown representing royalty.

Alma Rodriguez and Button[edit]

Alma is 12 years old and comes from a tight-knit Hispanic family. Her father Jorge has worked as the manager of the stable at Horseland for over ten years. An avid reader, Alma seems to take every opportunity to read. She's spirited and competitive, and is one of the best riders Horseland has to offer. She has a penpal named Alexander, who seems to have romantic feelings for her. Alma's shown to wear a green riding vest on top of a white long-sleeved shirt in most episodes.

Alma's horse is Button, a black-and-white Pinto mare with a wavy mane and tail with green stripes. Button is teasing and amiable, loving to play jokes on her friends and owner. When it all comes down to it, though, Button can be serious-minded, reliable, and very skilled in show jumping. She also has an Indian/Middle Eastern accent, despite her supposed Hispanic ancestry. Her symbol is a green four-leaf-clover representing luck. Button loves Alma as much as her friends do.

Molly Washington and Calypso[edit]

Molly is an 11-year old African-American girl who often deals with life's problems through humor. She is very funny, smart, charismatic, and creative. A free spirit, Molly is willing to make fun of herself and at times her friends, which can cause them to get annoyed at the fact that she doesn't seem to take much seriously. However, Molly can become serious and ride a horse just as well as the others when her friends are counting on her. She is good at Western riding and the only one to consistently wear her hair in a ponytail. Molly is shown to wear a pink riding jumper and has a little sister named Lissa.

Molly's horse is Calypso, a chestnut Appaloosa mare with a white mane and tail with pink stripes. She is amiable, laid back, affectionate, and a little slow. But when she learns something once, she's learned it for life! She loves her friends and rider dearly, and is particularly good friends with Button. She also has a noticeable Jamaican accent. Calypso is a sweet natured mare, with a lovely rider. Her symbol is a pink heart representing love.

Chloe Stilton and Chili[edit]

Chloe is 12-years old and quite a confident young girl. She comes from a wealthy family and is often conceited and self-centered, liking to let others know of her talents. She has an unrequited crush on Bailey, and would stop at nothing to impress him. She is especially fond of clothes and makeup, and loves to look great when she rides. Though Chloe is competitive with her sister, Zoey, they still support each other when it's important. Chloe has strawberry-blonde hair and green eyes. She is shown to wear a pale lavender sweater and dark purple headband with matching breeches.

Chloe's horse is Chili, a light grey Dutch Warmblood stallion with lavender stripes in his mane and tail. Chili shares Chloe's confidence to the point that he feels he is the most talented horse at Horseland, though he often feels upstaged and unappreciated by his showy rider. He and Aztec disagree frequently, but do not let it ruin their friendship. Both Chili and his rider are very talented in dressage. His symbol is a lavender diamond representing discipline. Chili can be quite a horse when Chloe isn't watching. He can become really an impossible horse.

Zoey Stilton and Pepper[edit]

Zoey is 12 years old and is Chloe's sister. She takes a more sneaky approach with her competitiveness, is into fashion and makeup, and shares her sister's crush on Bailey. Talented in cross country, she is captain of the Horseland cross country team. She can be competitive with her sister Chloe, but they still are willing to support each other. Although Zoey can be shallow and rude, she can also be considerate and nice. Zoey has red hair and green eyes and is shown to wear a turquoise short-sleeved top.

Zoey's horse is Pepper, a dark grey Dutch Warmblood mare with turquoise stripes in her mane and tail. Pepper is quick-tempered and selfish, sporting a large ego and a confidence to match. While she loves her rider and is best friends with Chili, she is usually on bad terms with the other horses, though they all still remain friends. Like Zoey, Pepper is snarky, spirited, and loves to compete. Her symbol is a turquoise crescent moon representing fate. Pepper can act up with Zoe hanging on for dear life. Pepper always ( or never) agrees with Chili when something bad happens that includes her.

Bailey Handler and Aztec[edit]

Bailey is the 12-year-old son of the Horseland owners. He often takes risks and gambles without considering the consequences of his actions. He loves horses and animals, and insists that they be treated with kindness and gentleness. Bailey has a dark brown mullet and dark blue eyes, and is considered the local heartthrob at the stables. Bailey's shown to wear a dark blue long sleeved shirt with his sleeves rolled up.

Bailey's horse is Aztec, a brown Kiger mustang with dark blue highlights. He frequently acts grumpy and nonchalant, but does genuinely care about his rider, his horse friends, and the other animals. He is often protective of his mare friends, much to their chagrin, and has shown great courage and leadership skills. His symbol is a dark blue lightning bolt representing strength.

Will Taggert and Jimber[edit]

Will is fifteen years old, relaxed, and good-looking, and is often put in charge of the ranch while Bailey's parents are away. He is Bailey's cousin and has lived with Bailey's family ever since he was a little boy. Mature and insightful, he often acts as an adult figure to the rest of the kids. He loves to listen to country music, ride horses, is great at horse riding - Rodeo and Dressage. He has blonde hair and blue eyes. He's shown to wear a black short-sleeved shirt with a horseshoe pendant around his neck. In the episode 'The Secret', it was also revealed that he has dyslexia.

Will's horse is Jimber, a powerful Palomino stallion with black highlights. Similar to Will, he has a commanding presence among the others at Horseland, and worked as a ranch horse before coming to Horseland. He's a bit older in years in comparison to the other horses, but is dependable and wise. His symbol is a black star representing passion. Jimber is Will's most prized horse. If Jimber lets Will down, he knows he's done something wrong. He always tries to make up for doing wrong, but, he doesn't just need himself, he needs his friends' help to apologize.

Shep[edit]

Shep is a wise male collie, a very loyal ranch dog, and always a help to the horses in times of trouble. He is often the voice of reason for Teeny and Angora, and, to illustrate a moral or lesson, often relates stories to Teeny (the episodes are actually flashbacks to previous events). His owner is Bailey, and Shep has been with him since puphood. In the series, Shep is very wise and friendly. He can be cautious, for an example in Molly and Chilly, he follows them into the wood as he does not think they are safe. Shep is a good ranch dog, telling stories to make differences to people who don't exactly know how to be friendly.

Teeny[edit]

Teeny is a young, chubby black-and-white potbelly pig who wears a pink ribbon on her tail. She displays an innocent, naive personality, and often becomes anxious over relatively small situations. Shep usually acts as a friend and mentor to Teeny, in contrast to Angora, who frequently teases her. She adores her food (and eating in general). Teeny can get worried quite easily. She also can get excited about things like balloons. Teeny normally says, "What are we gonna do Shep, what are we gonna do?!" Teeny relies on Shep, and tries to follow Angora, though Shep stops her. Teeny is also very funny. She can be a serious pig, sometimes.

Angora[edit]

Angora is a gray, long-haired Turkish Angora with a long bang, white chest tuft, green eyes and a pink collar with a gold pendant. She is often dismissive of the other animals, and feels that she deserves better treatment than everyone else, due to her self-absorbed and arrogant nature. A running gag in the series involves her love of trouble (and hatred of peace) at Horseland. However, she shows genuine concern whenever Shep and Teeny are in real danger. Angora is a really sperky cat. She's very snippy, like she knows a lot about horseland.

Secondary characters[edit]

Simbala and Ranak[edit]

Simbala is an Indian girl who meets the Horseland gang on a trip to France in the episode "International Sarah". She likes to say "yuk", and is thoughtful. She is proud of her culture, and wears traditional dress and a bindi. Her father knows Sarah's father, and the two girls become fast friends after falling into an underground cave. She loves riding, fresh fruit, and dental floss.

Simbala's horse is Ranak, a black stallion with a white face. He hates plane rides, but enjoys sugar cubes and being alone. After initially irritating the other horses with his worried whinnying, he apologizes and becomes good friends with them. He also has an accent. His color is dark blue. Ranak loves his Indian owner, but he does not know he will have new friends, not just Sarah and Scarlet, but horses who always (or sometimes) are friendly.

Jesse Golden and Buddy[edit]

Jesse is a boy who visits Horseland while his parents' farm, Golden Corral Ranch, is being remodeled. He appears in the episode "Bailey's New Friend." Like Bailey, he enjoys video games, taking care of his horse, talking, and being a bit of a dare devil. Both Molly and Alma think that he's a "cutie", and Chloe and Zoey express that they think he is "hot".

Jesse's horse is Buddy, a big brown Mix breed. He is brave, headstrong, and misses his home while away. He becomes friends with the other horses after he calms down. He has green stripes in his mane and tail. Buddy is a good competitor, but, sometimes he goes over the line, thinking he is the best, but his friends do not let that slide. They make sure he stays a nice and cool horse.

Alexander Buglick and Bucephalus[edit]

Alexander is Alma's pen pal, seen in the episode "First Love". While his letters to her made him seem like a wealthy champion rider, an intentional facade meant to impress her, he really only rides for fun, and is rather timid. His parents are the proprietors of a traveling circus. However, he admires Alma and her riding abilities, and shares her love of reading. He likes to compare himself with the great Macedonian general, Alexander the Great.

His horse is a kind, humble stallion named Bucephalus, in honor of Alexander the Great's famous steed. He performs in the circus and enjoys his life, despite its lack of glamour. His color is maroon. Bucephalus is Alexander's goofy( or awesome) horse. He trusts Alexander completely, making sure he does what Alexander gives him as a sign.

Mary Whitney and Prince[edit]

Mary is Sarah's cousin, a humorous, independent girl who doesn't let the fact that she is blind get in her way. Mary appears in the episode "A True Gift." She has a clever comeback for most insults that Zoey throws at her, and dislikes it when her friends are overly patronizing. She loves horses and riding, especially outdoors.

Mary's horse is Prince, a white Thoroughbred stallion who is said to be the fastest horse ever to come to Horseland, a 'fact' that angers Scarlet. Sarah temporarily rode him in Scarlet's place in order to make sure that he was a good enough horse for Mary. He also has a white wavy mane and tail with light blue highlights. Sometimes though, Prince is a pretty famous horse, which angers Scarlet. Prince is always trying to fit in with the other horses, but Scarlet thinks that he's just trying to become more famous.

Talia Bentley and Kisses[edit]

Talia is a talented but mean-spirited girl who is both confident and competitive. She appears in the episode "Changing Spots." She is the premier show jumper at Stanhope Academy, Horseland's biggest rival. She is Alma's nemesis, and the two show special animosity towards each other after they get in a fight about who deserves to win an upcoming competition.

Talia's horse is Kisses, a pretty white female Mix breed, although it is thought that she is a pure Arabian. She is an excellent show jumper, but is never given a chance to speak to any of the other horses. Her highlight color is light pink. Kisses is a pretty horse, but the real beauty in her, is that of her human love for her rider

Chase Whitney and Wonder[edit]

Chase is Sarah's cousin who comes to visit in the episode 'The Secret.' He is dyslexic, a fact which he tries to hide. Chloe and Zoey thought he was Sarah's boyfriend, when he was really her cousin. Chase has light brown hair and blue eyes.

His horse Wonder is a brown and black Arabian male with green stripes. Wonder never talks to any of the horses in the episode. Wonder won't talk because he's afraid to tell the other horses about his rider.

Nani Cloud and Sunburst[edit]

Nani is a 12-year-old Cherokee girl who appears in multiple episodes during season three. She is proud of her heritage, but deeper aspects of her personality are yet to be seen and she enjoys nature. Nani has black hair and hazel eyes. For the rest of the third season, she is quick to defend herself when Zoey and Chloe and, sometimes, Molly make flippant and insensitive comments. Nani's shown to casually wear light blue with yellow accents and light yellow only for important events such as shows.

Nani's horse is Sunburst, a palomino Paint stallion with yellow highlights. He prefers to be ridden bareback, since he cannot stand saddles. At first he starts out on bad terms with Pepper, although the two eventually become friends.His tack is also similar to Pepper's in color although his blue is slightly darker. He has a single braid under his mane, and his symbol is a yellow sun representing dignity.

Other characters[edit]

Jasmine and Amber[edit]

Jasmine and Amber are two of Molly's close friends from the city. Both of the girls are confident, playful, and loyal friends of Molly. Neither of them attend Horseland, but do express an interest in horseback riding. Despite frequently teasing Molly, the two are genuinely supportive of her interests. Amber is African-American, and has dark brown eyes and long wavy hair. Jasmine is of an Asian ethniticity, and has light hazel eyes and dark-colored hair. They both are like Molly, loving horses, but not liking to get dirty and dusty.

Linnea, Alexia and Windy[edit]

Linnea is a princess that visits Horseland in disguise, pretending to be the princesses' assistant, while Alexia, her maid, pretends to be the princess. Both have light blonde hair, blue eyes, and favor the color light pink, although Alexia is much shorter than her companion. Linnea is close friends with Sarah. Linnea's horse is Windy, a mare who looks like Talia's Kisses and wears an ornate bridle. She also has a wavy mane and tail. She doesn't understand English and only speaks her native tongue, so when Scarlet introduces herself, Windy doesn't understand her, and doesn't answer, leaving doubts and bad thoughts towards her because of it. Linnea is quite a princess, a little selfish, too.
