So i have seen very few hackney ponies around(riding or driving) and i was curious as to what the other few hackneys still out there look like. My hackney pony allegro is 29 and verrrrrrry strong! She is one of the fastest and bounciest and most driven ponies i know. She is only 12.2hh but has jumped four feet and with me jumped 3'3'' at 27. Please don't say anything mean about her age and what i do with her. She gets sick if retired, but the work she does is getting milder and milder.

Cute horse! And looks good for her age. Light work is good for older horses. What happened to her poor tail? lol And are you sure she's 12 hands? I swear she looks a little bigger lol

Her tail was docked at birth. She was born on a breeding farm and shown in hand, hence the scars on her withers and rump from the contraption that held her tail straight up until she was in the show ring and then it was taken off. She was rescued from a bad situation a little while after at the farm, and brought there and has had five different homes since then all going back to my friends mom and she found her permanent home at my place two years ago. And i didn't say that she is 12hh she is between 12.2hh and 12.3 hands i can gaurantee. the last three pictures are pretty old, but when i ride her bareback my feet come down almost to her knees and when i put my saddle on her i have to jack my stirrups up at least 3 holes.
