Well that's news to me. I have 5 different books on horse breeds and none of them say that hackneys pace. In fact one says right in the introduction "Hackneys were born to trot." And why would a horse be called a trotter if it paces?
I'll assume it's a difference between the US and the UK.
But while we're on the subject, although some gaited horses do pace their "easy gait" is not a pace. Most gaited horse riders hate pacing a much as they hate trotting!
