This scale of Paradise toys has a few size options. There are 9.5 inch horses (measured from hooves to ear tips) and also 8.5 inch ponies. The riders also come in a few sizes. In the Barn Buddies collection, there are 7.5 inch "adult" dolls to fit the horses, and 6 inch child dolls for the ponies. The newer Cowgirl Cool collection of riders contains 10 inch dolls that I suspect are made to fit a different group of Paradise horses--the 10 inch fuzzy-skinned ones that look like miniature My Life As horses. Today I will review a 9.5 inch (non-fuzzy) horse and one of the larger Barn Buddies dolls.
This review will serve as a companion to the Breyer post, and my hope is that it will provide a resource to help horse lovers figure out which company's 1:9 scale horse and rider toys are best for them.
