Sarah's shown to wear a red jacket with a matching necktie in most episodes. Her cell phone is also the same color as of season 3.

Sarah's horse is Scarlet, a black Arabian horse with red highlights. She is gentle enough for beginner riders to handle, and takes good care of them. Scarlet is prone to worry. She can also be moody and at times seems to want to be left alone. Scarlet used to be afraid of the vet. She is a very maternal figure. She is friendly to not only some other horses but also different animals like Shep, Teeny, Angora and the really old cat Mosey. She also has blue eyes just like her rider. Her symbol is a red crown.

Alma Rodriguez

Alma is twelve 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.

Angora

Angora is a gray cat who feels that she deserves better treatment than anyone else. Her favorite people at the stables are Chloe and Zoey because they are so much like her.

Contents

Characters

The characters of Horseland are usually limited to the humans who frequent the stable: Sara, Alma, Molly, Will, Bailey, and the sisters, Chloe and Zoey. However, some episodes (especially those which involve travelling), introduce onetime characters as a plot device, or focus on equine-centered dramas. Notably, nearly every character has a horse counterpart.

Sarah Whitney

Sarah is a twelve-year-old girl who likes to make friends. She usually encourages others to do their best and to have fun. She comes from a rich family, but does not consider herself better than others because of it. Sarah has blonde hair and light blue eyes. She also has silver earrings with piercings on her ears. Sarah's shown to wear a red jacket with a matching necktie in most episodes. Her cell phone is also the same color. She has been seen in younger ages and different hairstyles in flashbacks.

Scarlet

Sarah's horse is named Scarlet, a black Arabian horse with red highlights in her mane and tail. She was born in the USA a long time ago. Like her rider, she has light blue eyes. Scarlet is a gentle, maternal figure -often acting as a leader for her 'herd'- but is prone to sadness and anxiety. She is friendly and welcoming to newcomers of all species (even Windy who never speaks to her), and takes good care of beginner riders. Her symbol is a red crown.

Alma Rodriguez

Alma is twelve 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. A lover of books, Alma seems to take every opportunity to read. She has a penpal named Alexander, who seems to have a crush on her. Alma's shown to wear a green vest on top of a white long-sleeved shirt in most episodes.

Button

Alma's horse is named Button, a black and white Pinto mare with green highlights and a wavy tail. Button is mischievous and often plays tricks on the other horses; however, she is capable of being serious when necessary. She excels at show jumping and has a tendency to run away when frightened. Like her rider, Button has brown eyes and speaks with a Spanish accent. Her symbol is a green clover.

Molly Washington

Molly is an eleven-year-old African American girl who often deals with life's problems through humor. She is very funny, charismatic, and a free spirit. She is best friends with Alma, Bailey, Sarah, and Will. She makes fun of herself and, at times, her friends, which causes 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 with Calypso and the only one to have a permanent ponytail. Molly's shown to wear a pink jumper. Her cell phone is also the same color.

Calypso

Molly's horse is Calypso, a brown Appaloosa mare with a flaxen mane and tail and pink highlights. She is amiable, laid back, affectionate, and a little slow; when she learns something once, however, she's learned it for life. She loves her friends and rider dearly. Calypso has a Jamaican accent, which often makes her voice hard to understand, and seems to be good friends with Button. Her symbol is a pink heart.

Chloe Stilton

Chloe is twelve years old and quite a competitive girl, especially with her sister, Zoey. She is wealthy, extremely confident, and likes to let other people 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, they still support each other when its important. Chloe has strawberry-blonde hair with a purple headband and green eyes. She is shown to wear a light purple jumper. She is talented at dressage. She is also snooty; she and her sister have enjoyed the finer things in life for much of their lives.

Chili

Chloe's horse is Chili, a light grey Dutch Warmblood stud with lavender highlights. Chili shares Chloe's confidence to the point that he feels he is the most talented horse at Horseland; however, he often feels upstaged and\or unappreciated by his showy rider. Though he and Aztec frequently disagree with each other, they don't let it ruin their friendship. Chili is also a fan of the legendary show horse River. His symbol is a purple diamond.

Zoey Stilton

Zoey is the eleven year old younger sister of Chloe. Zoey takes a sneaky approach with her competitiveness and is into fashion and makeup. She is wealthy and good at riding in cross country, and shares her sister's crush on Bailey. She is competitive with her sister Chloe, though they still support each other when necessary. Though Zoey can be rude and competitive, she can also be considerate and nice. Zoey has red hair and green eyes and is shown to wear a light blue short-sleeved top.

Pepper

Zoey's horse, Pepper, is a dark grey Dutch Warmblood mare with light blue highlights and a wavy tail. Pepper is quick-tempered, and, while she loves her rider and is good friends with Chili, she isn't on such good terms with the other horses. Like Zoey, Pepper is confident, spirited and loves to compete. Her symbol is a sky blue crescent moon. She also has a sister named Lizy created by one of the Horseland fans and she has orange highlights.

Bailey Handler

Bailey is the twelve-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. He is friends with Sarah, Molly and Alma. Bailey has a dark brown mullet and blue eyes. Bailey's shown to wear a dark blue long sleeved shirt which he rolls his sleeves up. In the first two seasons, he talks like a preteen boy and in season three, he talks like a teenage boy.

Aztec

Bailey's horse is Aztec, a dark Kiger Mustang stallion with dark blue highlights. Aztec is frequently grumpy and resentful of other animals; however, this disguises a heart of gold. He often supports his equine companions, and has shown great courage in previous episodes (sometimes to the point of taking unnecessary risks). His symbol is a midnight blue lightning bolt.

Will Taggert

Will is fourteen years old, 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; Western and English. He has blonde hair and blue eyes. He is dyslexic. He's shown to wear a black short-sleeved shirt with a horseshoe pendant around his neck.

Jimber

Will's horse is Jimber, a powerful Palomino stallion with black highlights. He has a commanding effect on the equines of Horseland (similar to how Will leads the other kids) and worked as a ranch horse before coming to the stable. His symbol is a black star.

Teeny

Teeny is a young, chubby black-&-white pig who wears pink ribbons and lives at Horseland. She displays an innocent, naive personality, and often becomes anxious for small reasons. 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).

Angora

Angora is a gray, furry cat with green eyes and a pink collar. She is often dismissive of other animals, and feels that she deserves better treatment than anyone else. 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 true danger. Her favorite people at the stables are Chloe and Zoey because they are so much like her.

Shep

Shep is a male Collie, and acts as the leader of all non-horse animals at Horseland. He is a very loyal ranch dog and always helps the kids and 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 'episode' is actually a flashback to previous events). His owner is Bailey, and Shep has been with him since puphood.

Secondary characters

Simbala and Ranak

Simbala is an Indian girl who meets the Horseland gang on a trip to France in the episode "International Sarah". She is tends to say "yuk", 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 spirited black stallion who hates plane rides, but enjoys sugar cubes and being outdoors. After initially irritating the other horses with his worried whinnying, he apologizes and becomes good friends with them. He also has an Arabian accent. His color is dark blue.

Jesse Golden and Buddy

Jesse is an African American boy who visits Horseland while his parents' ranch, Golden Corral Ranch, is being remodeled. He appears in the episode "Bailey's New Friend." Like Bailey, he enjoys video games, such as Zoom Racer 3, telling tall tales, and is a bit of a dare devil. Both Molly and Alma think that he's a "cutie," Zoey and Chloe think he's "hot."

Jesse's horse is Buddy, is black, presumed to be a Rocky Mountain Horse. He is brave (as demonstrated by Jesse's claim that he once chased a grizzly bear away), headstrong, and misses his home while away. His color is dark turquoise.

Alexander Buglick and Bucephalus

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, modest, black 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.

Mary Whitney and Prince

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 Chloe and Zoey throw at her, and dislikes it when her friends are overly patronizing. She loves horses and riding, especially outdoors.

Mary's horse is Prince, a light grey Thoroughbred male who is rumored to be the fastest horse ever to come to Horseland, a 'fact' that riles Scarlet. Sarah temporarily rode him in Scarlet's place in order to make sure that he was a good enough mount for Mary. He also has a wavy mane and tail. His color is pale blue.

Talia Bentley and Kisses

Talia is a snobbish, mean-spirited girl who likes to show off. She appears in the episode "Changing Spots." She is the premier show jumper at Stanhope Academy, Horseland's biggest rival. She is Alma's arch-nemesis, and the two show special animosity towards each other after they get in a fight about who deserves to win an upcoming competition. She lies about her father being on the Olympic Show jumping team—he was really an alternate—and values prestige and money over talent.

Talia's horse is Kisses, a beautiful cremello mare of an unknown breed, although it is assumed that she is a purebred. She is an excellent show jumper and is never given a chance to talk to any of the other horses. Kisses's color is light pink.

Chase Whitney and Wonder

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

His horse Wonder is a dark bay Anglo-Arabian stallion. Wonder never talks to any of the horses in the episode. His color is forest green.

Nani Cloud and Sunburst

Nani is an eleven-year-old Native American girl who appears in multiple episodes during season three. She is very defensive of her heritage, but deeper aspects of her personality are yet to be seen. She enjoys nature. Nani has black hair and hazel eyes. For the rest of the third season she is quick to be defensive with Zoey and Chloe and, sometimes, even Molly. Nani's shown to wear light yellow for important events. She casually wears light blue.

Nani's horse is Sunburst, a Palomino American Paint Horse with yellow highlights. He prefers to be ridden bareback, and dislikes saddles. At first he starts out on bad terms with Pepper, although the two eventually become friends. He has a single little braid under his mane and wears a light blue blanket in case the night gets cold. His icon is a light blue sun.

Other characters

Linnea, Alexa and Windy

Linnea is a princess that visits Horseland in disguise, pretending to be the princesses' assistant, while Alexa, her aid, pretends to be the princess. Both each have light blonde hair, blue eyes, although Alexa is shorter, and they favor the color light pink. 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. As Scarlet introduces herself, Windy gets too shy to talk even though she listens to her.

Spike McSchmike

Spike is an up-and-coming fashion designer introduced in the episode "Riding in Style." He comes to Horseland to take photos for his new Dressage fashion collection, for which the kids are unwilling models. His clothes are cumbersome, ostentatious, and impossible to ride in. However, Spike, the stereotypical prima donna fashion designer, believes otherwise. His catchphrase is "Fabuloso!" or its antonym, "Un-fabuloso!" which is said thirty-one times throughout the episode. He swills numerous cappuccinos, and is followed by four groupies, who never speak and are attired in all black and mirrored sunglasses.

Other horses in the herd are a pair of bays, Mesa's palomino mother, and a piebald tobiano mare. They all have plain manes and tails.

River

River is a famous racehorse that comes to Horseland to recuperate from a leg injury. He is dark grey with a white mane and tail, and has light blue highlights. His only appearance is "A Horse Named River" and according to this episode, he is the eldest horse who speaks with an elderly voice. He was younger and belonged to an unnamed girl in flashbacks.
