Collecting and Playing with Bella Sara Horses

Updated on January 18, 2015

Little girls and horses go together like peanut butter and jelly. While most young princesses felt left out of the male-dominated Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh games, now there is a card collecting hobby that is right up their aisle.

The barn aisle, that is.

Interact online - with horses, not strangers

Bella Sara is a horse-themed collectible card game featuring positive messages for kids 5 to 12.

Unlike Myspace and other social networking sites unsuitable for young ladies, there is no peer interaction on Bella Sara. Girls create an account and enter codes from cards they own to "unlock" horses they can feed, train and groom.

They can also play games and solve puzzles on the site. The site is free to use: there are no subscription fees. Plus, parents can set a game play time limit from one to three hours in the parental controls.

  • United States

This series introduces kids to Native American culture. Native Lights represents tribal stories, images and traditions in a positive way.

Can I buy a specific horse?

Cards come in packs with random horses included. You may get a common horse or a rare one; all new horses or duplicates of ones you already have. That is part of the collecting hobby.

There should be four common cards and one rare or extra-rare card in each pack of five.

The extra-rares are the shiny foil versions of the rare horses. Only one in six packs has an extra-rare card.

eBay sellers that specialize in Bella Sara cards are a good resource for a special card you just have to have, but be aware you will pay a premium for the rare horses.

Make sure the eBay seller guarantees an UNUSED code, and that the code is not legible in the auction photo. Otherwise, someone else may already be playing with "your" horse!

I recommend Ann's Bella Sara Horses, an eBay store I have added links to throughout this lens. I have completed several auction purchases with this seller personally, and was very impressed with the prompt and protected delivery of the cards just as described.

Other products such as mini binders to hold the cards, puzzles, and even plush toys are now available from Bella Sara. See the list of items at Amazon at the bottom of this page for more options.
