the 1950s, ‘60s. ‘70s, Lloyd Donley tirelessly campaigned some of the
nation’s leading Appaloosa performance horses throughout the Midwest.
He was one of the first trainers to dedicate himself to the breed,
introducing people across the nation to the Appaloosa.
In particular, he was known for training the all-around horse, molding
champions as Tico Tornado, Absorokee Sunup, JJ Sunshine, Absarokee Doger, Tem
Pop, Yegua’s Bob and CGM Mighty High.
To honor his influence, a Lloyd Donley Memorial Trophy is now presented
each year to the best World Show cutting horse.
