Harlan 1951-1973

AQHA Hall of Fame

When we first started with these horses more than 25 years ago, we had a specific type of horse that we were attracted to. After some research and help from friends we identified what all of those early mares had in common was Harlan. That led us to searching for even more horses with Harlan in their pedigrees and like minded breeders.


We are pleased that in March of 2019, AQHA inducted Harlan into the Hall of Fame.


Below is some of the support material for that application including photos, recorded interviews and a video produced by AQHA.
