I'd read some bad reviews for the AG horse and the knock-offs at Target, so I decided to give this horse a try. My daughter got it last night for her birthday and she loves the color and how soft it is. (I don't think she noticed that the softness is like a horse bodysuit - not fuzz permanently stuck to the horse; probably not a detail kids pick up on.) The stirrups are too long for the AG doll, but she otherwise sits in the saddle nicely. Another nit is that the brush fits backward on an AG doll's hand so you can't realistically brush with it. Overall, I'd say my daughter is happy with it and since I was going more for color than anything, this toy fits the bill. But it's not a perfect fit for AG dolls.
