About Hackney HorsesAbout Hackney Horses



Hackney horses (also known as Roadsters) were developed in England and greatly improved as a result of a mandate by King Henry VIII. They are considered one of the finest United Kingdom breeds. English society wanted a horse that could carry their heads high, that could have an interesting gait, and could have their knees lifted with ease. Hackney horses fit that demand and were further bred to improve those features, often with the infusion of Arab blood lines. In the late eighteen hundreds, the Hackney horses began their very own studbook and went on to be produced all over the entire world.

It is believed that Hackney horse got their name from the French word 'Haquenee', which means 'riding horse'. You can find them in France, England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. Their Arab blood line influences give them a different look and overall appearance from the other horse breeds that one can find roaming around the United Kingdom.

They have excellent stamina and endurance. They are noted as having very energetic personalities and can be showy, wise, and playful.  

Hackney horses stand at around fifteen hands in full grown size. They are bred in various colors such as bay, brown, chestnut, and black. They have a refined arched head, level croup, sloping shoulders, and a very high set tail. They have ideal withers for harness work and bode lots of muscles.
