Hackney Horses originated in England. Their ancestors were highly valuable for the particularly comfortable trot or amble. As riding animals they were especially ridden by noblemen; they were also used as driving and even as light cavalry horses. In the beginning of the 18th century this native horse was crossed with the imported Arabian stallion, which added some refinement to the breed and took nothing away.
