An animated series based on a virtual pet game by DiC Entertainment.It stars a bunch of teenage kids at a horse ranch called, you guessed it, Horseland. It features your typical teen problems and various situations involving horses. Basically, it's an animated version of The Saddle Club.The series returned to CBS as part of Cookie Jar TV on February 5, 2011.
Mosey subverts the trope in a laterepisode. Unfortunately, he's dead by the time the series begins.
Deadpan Snarker: Quite a few characters; Shep, Angora, Chili, Molly, Zoey and Chloe.
Dull Surprise - A lot of the voice acting is ... not top notch. Best example is in "The Whispering Galley" when Zoey apologizes while trying not to cry, and really delivers an incredibly sarcastic line.
Empathy Pet: The horses' personalities sometimes reflect those of their of their riders.
It's All My Fault: Used in a few episodes. Will has this reaction when a forest fire breaks out during a camping trip. Sarah also does this when she realizes that Molly wasn't gossiping behind her back, and was talking about a different Sarah.
Karma Houdini: In "Bailey's New Friend", Chloe and Zoey tricked Bailey and his new friend Jesse to pick-up chicken feed and take the long way, to make Sarah even more left out. And they didn't get called out for lying.
L Is for Dyslexia: We learn that Sarah's cousin, Chase, has difficulty reading because of dyslexia. Sarah tries to show him that he needn't be embarrassed, because she has a good friend who is also dyslexic who still manages to get by quite well. At the end of the episode, Will reveals that he is the friend she was speaking of.
OOC Is Serious Business: In the episode "Pepper's Pain", Pepper botches a jump and hurts her leg, much to Zoey's shock. The next day, Zoey comes in late, acting just the same as usual...except that she completely ignores Pepper and acts as if she's dead.
Sarah: She might be mean to everyone else, but she loves Horseland, and she loves her horse.
Tsundere: A non-romantic example: Pepper and Chilli are cold and arrogant to the other horses, but act as each other's best friends.
True Companions: The horses are, as a whole, far less prone to fighting and doubt than their riders. One of their POV episodes is actually devoted to explaining the herd instinct and how it bonds them.
You Gotta Have Blue Hair: The horses are have normal coat colours, but their manes and tails are veined with unnatural colours. The strangeness of this is never brought up in the show, and has become a sort of Running Gag among the fanbase.
