Dr. Wallace R. Kent

Wallace Kent

Dr. Wallace Kent was a longtime breeder of Hackney horses, an importer, and an exhibitor.  He continued to carry on the family tradition after establishing a medical practice.  His first horses were well bred mares that he raised foals from.  Offspring included Sirius Lady Warwick, Wildfire Paddy Parader, Starlight Parader, Mississauga Maiden, Mississauga Proud Chieftan, Mississauga Brave, Mississauga Sirius Sioux, and a host of others over the years. Suddie Sirius was imported from England in 1970 and used as a herd sire, as well as utilizing the blood of Hartzett Paddy into the program.  Wallace, his wife Hope, and sons Kevin and Wallace, and daughter Faith were all involved with the horses. The Kents exhibited in all classes at a horse show, from singles to a four in hand, as well as supporting the Canadian, Ontario and Ottawa Futurity programs.  He was elected a director of the Canadian Hackney Society in 1971, and was President in 1979 and 1980. Breeding stock and show horses were sold to many Ontario exhibitors as well as throughout the U.S.   His commitment to the Hackney breed continues to be recognized across North America.
