Harness racing was established in France in the early 1800's causing the country to develop its own trotting horse. This was done by crossing the English Thoroughbred, the native Norman mares and the Norfolk Roadster. Later, Standardbred blood was added to give more speed to the breed. This tough breed is known for its trotting speed, adaptability and good temperament. The French Trotter averages 16.2hh.
