The Hackney Society

The Organization of the Society

The incorporation of the American Hackney Horse Society took place early in 1891. The idea occurred to owners of Hackney horses throughout the western states and indeed residents of several parts of the country had actually taken steps to form a similar society some months prior to the organization of the AHHS. It was not until advances were made to the Council of the English Hackney Society by the directors of this association that action in the United States was formally ratified by the authorities of the parent society, and assurance of affiliation obtained.

The Society Today

The headquarters of the American Hackney Horse Society is located in the Kentucky Horse Park, Lexington, Kentucky. It exists to maintain a current registry of the Hackney; to compile and publish a stud book of the Hackney horse and Hackney pony; and to ensure the proper transfer of the certificate of registration. It endeavors to promote the breeding of quality Hackney horses and Hackney ponies; to create interest in the breed; and encourages exhibitors to support horse shows by showing their Hackneys in classes offered. The Society offers several programs for exhibitors to participate in which encompasses all ages. A fifteen member board of directors from across the country oversees the operation of the Society.
