Hi guys! We are back with a review of the Our Generation horse stable! We received this stable for Christmas from Santa, and the Little Miss is very pleased. Our doll’s horses finally have a place to live!
But first, I would like to take this opportunity to wish a very Happy 9th Birthday to the Little Miss! Mom and Dad are so proud of you, and we love you very much! 🙂

Onto the review! Let’s have a look shall we?
Here is a view of the front. The doors to the stable open up, and there are two extra fence pieces that clip right on. I like this feature, because even though our smaller horse fits in the stable, the larger horse would not fit in the stable without these two extra additions.
The stable walls are made of pressboard, but the fence pieces and the supports are made of wood. The floor is made of a sturdier pressboard, and the two dividers slide easily into place.
As you can see, the quality of the wood isn’t the best, but it is lightweight which I think is important for doll items.
The overall design is pretty good. The stable is pretty sturdy as long as you don’t move it around too much. The hinges on the doors are kind of flimsy though. They are made of a thin metal, and I feel like a good bump could bend them or break them off.
The shingles of the stable roof are also made out of very thin pressboard, so be careful. They can break off easily with rough play. Luckily, we don’t have any younger children in our house anymore.
The inside of the stable is my favourite. There are tons of hooks and a couple of shelves that are perfect for holding all of the accessories. There is also a feed trough that is attached to the wall. There is already feed inside of it too. The feed is not removable, but treats can be laid on top.
There are even saddle hooks which are important since this set comes with a saddle and a bridle.
Here is a picture of the saddle. I like the colours in this set. The Little Miss isn’t crazy about pink, but I really like it. 🙂
This is the bridle. Yes, I know what you are thinking. It’s what the Little Miss was thinking too. As soon as she saw this, she called it The Big Ball of Complicated. LOL!
I set about to remedy the situation. I had to go online to find a picture of how to put the bridle on the horse properly, but after a lot of adjustment, and frustration, I surprisingly managed to figure it out.
Keep in mind that I don’t ride horses, so I had no earthly idea what I was doing with this. It looks alright though, right? LOL! 🙂
Here is Chestnut all decked out in his new saddle and bridle.
The stable also comes with these saddle bags. However, Midnight has a better saddle to use these with. The saddle that comes with the stable doesn’t have a saddle horn on it.
The horses are enjoying their new home! ❤
Okay, now let’s talk about accessories because despite the pros and cons of this piece, there is one thing that can’t be denied. I think I speak for doll lovers everywhere when I say that Our Generation really knows how to accessorize! This set comes with everything your dolls could possibly need and more to feed, brush and care for their horses.
Treats are a must.
Curry combs. (That’s what these are right? Again, I’m not equestrian.)
Miscellaneous bottles. Not sure what these are for, but whatever. Still fun!
Feed bucket with scoop. The feed is not removable.
Hoof pick, rubber bath mitt, wash bucket, sponge and lead clip? I think that’s a clip that you use to harness the horse? Correct me if I’m wrong. 🙂
Feed bag and horse switch. The hay inside the bag is just a picture on card paper but it is still pretty cute. The window is plastic and the bag opens so if you wanted to replace the paper with pretend hay you could.
All in all we really like this set. We think that it is well worth the money, and that the dolls and their horses will have a lot of fun playing here. 🙂
What did you think? Do your dolls have horses?
