[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Horseland_2_902.jpg]]

An animated series based on a virtual pet game by Creator/DiCEntertainment.

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 ''Literature/TheSaddleClub''.

The series returned to Creator/{{CBS}} as part of Creator/CookieJarTV on February 5, 2011.

----
!!''Horseland'' includes examples of:

* AbsenteeActor: Not all the main characters will appear in every episode. Most pronounced whenever Bailey or Will are absent, being the immediate family of Horseland's owners who ''live there'' after all.
* AmplifiedAnimalAptitude - The horses understand a lot of human speech, and act more like intelligent dogs than horses. They do bolt and spook, but not at times you'd really expect them to.
** All the animals, really.
* AnAesop: Every episode.
* AnimatedAdaptation: Of the virtual pet online game of the same name.
* BigDamnHeroes: When the kids, Shep, and the horses show up to rescue Cubby from a mountain lion.
* BigEater: Teeny, being a [[AnimalStereotypes pig]].
* BookEnds: Used with most episodes.
* CatsAreMean: Angora, though she isn't mean all the time.
** Mosey subverts the trope in a [[AnachronicOrder later]] [[{{Flashback}} episode]]. Unfortunately, he's dead by the time the series begins.
* DeadpanSnarker: Quite a few characters; Shep, Angora, Chili, Molly, Zoey and Chloe.
* DullSurprise - 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.
* EmpathyPet: The horses' personalities sometimes reflect those of their of their riders.
* EvilLaugh: Done very badly by Zoey and Chloe.
* FeudEpisode: "The Competition."
* HeroicDog: Shep has his moments.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Chilli and Pepper.
* InvisibleParent: Despite being the owners of the titular Horseland ranch that the series takes place at and nigh revolves around, Bailey's parents/Will's aunt and uncle are ''never'' seen. Sometimes to an egregious extent when something serious is threatening Horseland. They are mentioned, but usually through their mouthpieces Will and Bailey.
** In fact, [[ThereAreNoAdults the show seems to have a distinct lack of any adults pictured on-screen]], no matter how often they are mentioned or referred to, or even how important they are to the plot at hand (usually as a catalyst of some sort). This would also be a prime contributor to the the shows all around MinimalistCast.
* ItsAllMyFault: 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.
* KarmaHoudini: 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.
* LIsForDyslexia: 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. [[spoiler:At the end of the episode, Will reveals that he is the friend she was speaking of.]]
* LimitedSocialCircle[=/=]MinimalistCast: Sarah, Molly, Alma, Bailey, Zoey, Chloe, Will, and Nani later on, their horses, Shep, Angora, and Teeny are the only characters featured. Though, [[TwentyFourHourPartyPeople other kids]] make occasional appearances in most episodes.
* LonelyRichKid: Sarah in the first episode; the others didn't like her at first because they thought she'd be like [[RichBitch Zoey and Chloe]].
* LotsOfLuggage: An episode had Chloe and Zoe attempt to bring a lot of useless gadgets with them on a camping trip. MP3 player, curling iron, hair dryer, smart phones etc.
* LowerDeckEpisode: The human-centric episodes are usually alternated with episodes from the animals' point of view
* ManlyTears: Shep sheds a few of these as he watches Mosey leave the barn [[{{TearJerker}} to die]].
* MeaningfulName: Scarlet has a black coat, but her mane and tail is veined with bright red.
* MrFanservice: Bailey and, to a lesser extent, Will.
* NeverMyFault: In "Win Some, Lose Some", Alma blames the course-changing rather than herself for not practicing.
* [[NewNeighboursAsThePlotDemands New Kid as the Plot Demands]]:The general purpose of the various characters of the day. They're around to spice up the episode plots and better give the illusion that the LimitedSocialCircle of horseback riding isn't as limited as it is in-show. As per the name, most of these characters of the day never show up more than once, so Nani Cloud sticking around and [[SixthRanger joining the cast]] in season 3 becomes a notable exception.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Zoey and Chloe, [[RunningGag again]], look and act an awful lot like Paris Hilton and Lindsey Lohan.
** Also their last name is "[[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Stilton]]".
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: 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 [[{{Jerkass}} 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.
* ParentalAbandonment: Will lives with his aunt, uncle, and cousin. It's never revealed what happened to his parents. May also cross over with ConvenientlyAnOrphan.
* RichBitch: Zoey and Chloe Stilton.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Even though they consistently act like bitches to almost everyone, they do have soft sides that they will show on occasion.
** Of note, by nature of the show's premise, most of the human characters, major and one-shot, would more than likely have to come from some form of well-off background, to varying extents (Jesse being the son of another ranch-owning family[[lablenote:*]]which was primarily why he and Bailey got along so well[[/lablenote]], for example), yet despite this, no one else plays this Trope straight like Zoey and Chloe do. Special mention goes to Sarah, as implied wealthy as the Stilton twins, who was assumed to be just as stuck up as them by the other girls on her first day, thus setting up a "Don't judge a book by its cover." [[AnAesop Aesop]].
* ShipTease: Sarah/Bailey and Sarah/Will.
* SpeaksFluentAnimal: Sarah is teased about this.
* SixthRanger: Nani Cloud and her horse Sunburst both subvert the one-off character trend of previous episodes by sticking around after their season 3 debut.
* StatusQuoIsGod: Zoey and Chloe will always, for example, have AesopAmnesia.
* TalkingAnimal: At least when humans aren't around.
* TokenMinority: Molly (Black) and Alma (Hispanic).
** Nani (Native American) in Season 3.
* {{Tsundere}}: A non-romantic example: Pepper and Chilli are cold and arrogant to the other horses, but act as each other's [[HeterosexualLifePartners best friends]].
* TrueCompanions: 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.
* YouKnowWhatYouDid: The Gossip episode.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: 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 RunningGag among the fanbase. Stylistic choice is one possible explanation for this.
