Each year, the American Quarter Horse Association honors breeders who have dedicated their livelihoods to maintaining the integrity of the American Quarter Horse breed. These horsemen, horsewomen and their families see their biggest accomplishments and proudest moments in the horses they breed.

Their program was founded by Golliher’s late father, Z.N. Golliher in 1948. Jerry, Sue, their daughter Zeann, and Jerry’s brother and sister-in-law, Warren and Jan, continue the breeding program where they have bred and registered over one-thousand foals.

The Golliher legacy is built on choosing quality performance stallions. Some of these stallions include Range Duster, Lil McGin, Hoddy Jay, Diamond Dial, Flying Z Ace, Easy Ta Fame and Dusters Dash. The Gollihers are responsible for breeding many champions in several disciplines including the all-around, rodeo, racing, cutting and roping.

The Gollihers have built a training facility and have produced a renowned futurity and breakaway roping school. They are passionate about the impact that their horses have made with youth and are thankful and proud to have made the friends and connections they have through the horse industry.
