Hackney horses (also known as Roadsters) were developed inrnEngland and greatly improved as a result of a mandate by King Henry VIII. Theyrnare considered one of the finest United Kingdom breeds. English society wantedrna horse that could carry their heads high, that could have an interesting gait,rnand could have their knees lifted with ease. Hackney horses fit that demand andrnwere further bred to improve those features, often with the infusion of Arabrnblood lines. In the late eighteen hundreds, the Hackney horses began their veryrnown studbook and went on to be produced all over the entire world.
