Since the age of 5, George Laidlaw has been involved with horses. George’s resume within the horse world includes daily functions at Laidlaw Stables, a family venture in Chatham, Ontario. George’s experience of over 50 years within the quarter horse industry, started in 1968, when he showed “Cutters Crystal” in the Ontario Quarter Horse Breeders Futurity. George has remained active in breeding, raising, promoting and selling, multiple OQHBF Champions, World Champions, Congress Champions, AQHA and NSBA Champions ever since.
A lifetime member of the OQHA, a former President of Area 1 Quarter Horse Promotional Association and committee member on numerous boards, represent just a part of his horse involvement.
George has had ownership involvement in some of Ontario’s most elite horses, including: “Bonanzas Scorpion” (Ontario Hall of Fame), “Donna Cash”, “Dorados Autumn” “Cash Commander”, “The Next Star” (Ontario Hall of Fame). “Just Plain Awesome” “Sweet Talkin Chip” (2017 NSBA Hall of Fame), and most recently the new stallion addition, “Ty”.
George is humbled and honoured by being the 2018 Inductee into the OQHA Hall of Fame. He wishes to thank everyone who has been a part of such an incredible ride. George and the rest of Laidlaw Stables are looking forward to what’s next in store, as breeders of fine quality quarter horses in Ontario.
We are currently working to update the Hall of Fame Page on this site. Please be patient while the magic happens!
