Welcome to the Hackney Hall of Fame.  This section of our web site is dedicated to the greatest horses, ponies, exhibitors, breeders and trainers that have made an impact on the Hackney in Canada

Jim and Helen Harvey



Jim and Helen Harvey were Hackney horse and pony exhibitors for 40 years,  and together they took in the leading shows Canada and the eastern states area.  Jim and Helen's earliest entries were hackney ponies, and in the early 1960s they added horses. Jim Young started working with Jim at his farm, and worked with the horses and ponies to get them ready for the show ring. The stake winning horse Application was added in 1967, and in 1969 they bought Hurstwood Toreador.  Toreador would give Jim many great performances and won five horse stakes at the Royal as well as at Eastern States, Syracuse, Favara, Ottawa and Devon.  Mark of Canterbury and Double Bubble of Hopewell were great cobtails and collected many prizes. Jim judged across Ontario, Quebec, the four Maritime provinces and Bermuda. Helen was deeply involved with the Canadian Pony Club,  their daughter Luanne was a member. The large Harvey horse van was often turned into a base camp for pony club rallys that the Kingston Club attended in Ontario and Quebec. The Harveys were members of the Frontenac Hunt, and Jim would be out riding during the spring and fall . They also hosted a well attended summer picnic for the Canadian Hackney Society, and were great ambassadors for Canada and Canadian Hackneys.(Inducted April 2016)
