George Walker

George WalkerGeorge Walker received board appointment to the American Hanoverian Society (AHS) Mare and Stallion Committee in 2002, and in January of 2008 the board accepted the Mare and Stallion Committee’s recommendation that he be added as a stallion judge. He and his wife Catherine own and operate Middlefield Farm in Blythewood, S.C. George was raised with Thoroughbreds and traveled the world working with them. In 1984 George graduated top of his class at the Irish National Stud. Also in 1984 his family acquired their first Hanoverians. While the family has raised and stood several stallions in the past, including Banter, recently their emphasis has been on maintaining a select group of homebred mares. The operation is strictly hands on, including the breeding and breaking work. He and his family have had the pleasure of learning a great deal from their friends Gerd and Yvonne Zuther, Fritz Floto and Buck Brannaman. George believes in donating back to the Society; he is also an elected member of AHS’s Finance Committee.
