The Trottingbred Horse was developed in the early 1960's by crossing the strong and tenacious Welsh, Hackney, and Shetland Ponies with full Standardbred Horses for their speed.   The cross created a very versatile horse willing to do anything asked of it.    In 1977 the Trottingbred officially became a recognized breed of horse by the American Horse Council.  Today, they are primarily used for Harness Racing in the United States, Bermuda, Canada, and Italy, but are also used for trail riding, driving teams, horse shows, and pulling Amish Buggies.
