The Hackney horse was bred from Norfolk and Yorkshire Trotters and also has Arab and Thoroughbred breeding. The first Hackney horse as we know the breed today, was recorded in 1760. They were used mainly as harness horses Later the Hackney horse was crossed with the ponies to create the Hackney pony and there are now separate stud books for horses and ponies. The Hackney Horse is well known today for its distinctive movement, an easy, rhythmic canter, and a free, generous walk.  Some Hackney's however wont canter because they are bred for trotting and are difficult to canter and often buck and rear when asked.
