About Norfolk Trotter HorsesAbout Norfolk Trotter Horses



Norfolk Trotters, also known as Norfolk Roasdsters, are anrnextinct horse breed once native to East Anglia and Norfolk, England. They werernclaimed to be a large-sized trotting harness horse originating in and aroundrnNorfolk.

rnrnIn 1542, King Henry the eighth required the rich citizens tornkeep a specific number of trotting-horse stallions. Norfolk Trotters were wellrnpraised in Norfolk, and later became known as the Norfolk Trotter.

rnrnNorfolk Trotters became the standard travel horse in England.rnIn the city of Yorkshire, the same breed was known as the Yorkshire Trotter.rnNorfolk trotters were also known as roadsters. It is common to see the termrnNorfolk / Yorkshire Roadster / Trotter in breed-history books; regardless ofrnthe name, all are the same breed of horse. They were used under saddle as onernof the fastest means of travel in areas where there were no established roads. Theyrnwere known for their ability to carry a heavy man for great distances at speedsrnup to 16-17 mph. Trotting races were very popular in the early part of the nineteenthrncentury and Norfolk Trotters performed very well in them.

rnrnA Norfolk Trotter stallion, Bellfounder, was imported to thernUnited States in 1822, and he proved to be a major influence in the founding ofrnthe Standard breed by becoming the damsire of Hambletonian 10. Norfolk Trottersrnare also strongly influenced today's modern Hackney horse.
