Bred our TB mare to a Canadian Commerical stallion - lovely horse.
There are still a few hackney horses out there competing - check out www.horsenation.com for the article titled Turn and Burn and you can read about Hal the Hackney - Marcie Quist's fabulous gelding. She has a very talented young mare coming along right behind this one.

I would love a hackney horse, about 15h, that would be totally cool... So reading this sparked some interest and i started searching the sales sites... It is pretty darn sad. I found a couple stallions for sale, several "hackney crosses" that may have well been hackney pony... Some free fairly old mares in CA... but nothing that i could even think of considering.
When i was in arabs, i guess i left that world 12yrs ago now, there were a few hackney's that were crossing well with the arabs, but then they seemed to sway to the Dutch Harness Horse, which i like too... I'm sure those coming in didnt help the poor hackney horses.
I vividly remember a very neat picture i had (cut from a magazine) as a teen and taped on my wall surrounded by others, of a pair of bay hackney horses with high whites pulling a carriage. It was one of my favorites.
So are there many/any hackney horse breeders left in the US? Where are they?
http://www.erosarabhacks.com/ has a few purebreds.. most of theirs are Arab/Hack crosses though. But not a whole lot anywhere of the Horses. There are quite a few hackney ponies around, but those are different.
Sandra Singleton of Panache Hackeys is a wonderful breeder. She saved a Hackney mare that we found in a very bad situation in Texas. We rehabbed the mare then she was shipped to her farm. She is a very nice lady with a wealth of information about the Hackney Horse. http://panachehackneys.com/
