The modern Hackney Horse is the most spectacular show ring harness horse, although it also takes part successfully in competitive driving events at international level. It is an English breed, derived from the renowned Norfolk and Yorkshire Roadsters, and has been exported all over Europe as well as to the Americas, South Africa, and Australia. The origin of the word Hackney, used with a capital letter after the foundation of the Hackney Horse Society in 1883, is open to question. It probably comes from the french “haquenee”, which means a “nag” or gelding (info from Eyewitness Handbook – Horses).
