“It is vital to the horse industry. It encourages the individual horse owner to raise these animals.”

 

Nathan Granger has been a board member for the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association for five years. He has been involved with thoroughbred horses for 30 years and currently owns and manages 15. His G & G Farms is a breeding and racing operation.

 

He is a partner in Quality Companies, U.S.A and transfers his business expertise to the business of the association. His perspective and experience helps maintain the balance with budget and passion for the industry.

 

Nathan Granger is an entrepreneur, an Athletic Hall of Famer and a man of a deep faith that inspires him to make his little world a better place. He is known to give back to the community and businesses that he is involved with and gives back to the horse industry by serving on the LTBA board. His entrepreneurial spirit is the same one that fuels most thoroughbred horse breeding and racing businesses.

 

Born and raised in Erath, the father of five and husband to a woman he met in kindergarten, Dana.

 

While at Erath High School, Granger lettered in four sports, eventually walking on with the then University of Southwestern Louisiana football team. He played football for a year and a half, but after his playing days were over, he remained at the school to finish his bachelor’s degree in finance. He also received a master’s degree in business from USL — now the University of Louisiana at Lafayette — several years later.

 

Nathan’s favorite Louisiana bred is Hallowed Dreams.

 

“She was one of the first Louisiana breds that could have competed on the national scene.”
