Miss Hackney (voiced by Kate Robbins) is the ponies' teacher. She has a lot of patience, having to deal with Patch's immaturity on a daily basis. Very wise, she is a good role model, and is strict but fair. She is periwinkle with lavender hair, and her hip mark is a small chalkboard. It is suggested that she may have feelings for Mr. Kiddoo, the hot air balloon pilot in the episode Up, Up, and Away.
