It is an elegance, high level horse -drawn coach horse race, which is very much appreciated for performance at trapeze-shows.
Hackney's have good endurance and are able to tramp at high speeds for long times. Hackney Horse was invented in Norfolk in the fourteenth centuary when the King of England needed efficient but appealing ponies with an outstanding jog that were to be used for general saddlehorse.
As the streets were at that time just a rudiment, Hackneys were a prime rider, since horse back then was the usual means of transport for them. Trotter were better suited as martial arts than migratory ponies with their paces. In 1542, King Henry VIII demanded that his affluent followers keep a certain number of trotter colts for brood.
Around 1729, a Norfolk Trotter and an Arab horse were part of the basic inventory of Hackney Horse. As a result, the resulting Norfolk Roadster, as it was called, was a heavy horse used by peasants and others as a workhorse. He was also a quick horse with good endurance.
The Norfolk ponies Robert and Philip Ramsdale, both sire and sire, brought Wroot's Pretender and Phenomenon to Yorkshire, where they raised them with Yorkshire trotters. By July 1800, the famous Hackney filly Phenomenon was reset to 17 mile for a £400 wager in 56 mins, which she did in 53 mins.
In the nineteenth and eighteenth centuries, with the extension of the railroad, the Norfolk race was disgraced and later resurrected by the Hackney Horse Society. Norfolk and Yorkshire Trotters were selected for elegance and elegance and developed to become the contemporary Hackney Horse. However, Hackney Horse's bright corridors rescued him from dying out and began his work in the show ring.
