What is a Road Horse or Pony?

The Hackney Road Horse/Pony

Hackneys are also very popular for use as "road ponies." Their fast trot that maintains its high action is ideal for the racing-type shows where they are exhibited. Road ponies are shown pulling a brightly painted two-wheel cart called a "bike". The drivers wear silks similar to those worn in Standardbred or Sulky or Trotter or Pacer racing.
