Artist Comments:
This high stepping aristocrat of the show ring is not only captivating but breathtaking. The crisp action trot, knees raised high at each step, hind quarters powerfully propelling, amazes the first time Hackney viewer. The bright spirit, the gentle eye, the intelligence are all part of the winning package which draw both young and old to the Hackney breed. With origins dating back to 1760 when a foundation stallion in England became reknown for his elegant style and speed. Leading to present day times where hundreds of Hackney ponies and horses are used both as stylish show horses and amiable family companions.
