Judging Hackneys

Hey all (:

So this weekend is FFA State Finals at Cal Poly, and I'm on my school's horse judging team. We found at that we will be judging hackneys, which is something that we would on any normal occasion not judge, but this is state finals, and they throw weird things at you. It will probably be an in hand/halter class. So... how do you judge a class of hackneys?

I'm also making a study guide for my team... so can you guys please place this class I scrounged up and come up with cuts and the reasons why you placed them that way? Thanks(:

They can just be numbered 1 - 4 from the top down ;)

I know absolutely nothing about hackneys so no help there but here's a link with some breed standards & judging criteria.

I showed Hackneys when I was a kid and have owned a few registered ones. A lot of people think Hackneys are gaited but they are not gaited. They just have a high stepping trot.

Forgot to add, please let us know how it goes!

I still remember those days, the worst was the year we went to the livestock expo in Louisville and we had to judge gaited classes, that was a big challenge for this QH girl. My oral reasons followed the old adage "If you don't know the answer, baffle them with b.s." Our team ended up 2nd and I was 3rd overall individual, still don't know how the heck that happened.

By the way, Hackneys are not gaited. They are the ultimate trotting machines. Look up the breed standard on the Hackney Horse Society website.
