Life at the Hall of Champions

Resident of the Hall of Champions since July 2001

Western Dreamer is very gentle, and he loves to be scratched. Dreamer is very fond of kids and dogs. If there is a dog in the pavilion during a Hall of Champions show, he will reach his nose out to smell the dog. He also loves to play with a jolly ball in his stall.

Harness Racing: Pacing

Harness racing is a form of racing only open to Standardbreds (in North America). This form of racing involves horses pulling carts with drivers controlling them. Standardbreds perform either at the trot or at the pace when they race. Pacing is a gait in which the horse moves his legs laterally (right front and right rear, left front and left rear). Pacing is slightly faster than trotting and horses who pace are less likely to break gait. Pacing is more popular than trotting in the United States.
