2010 Inductee

Leonard Hughes Jr.
Nashville, Michigan

Lenny Hughes -

The Michigan Dynamometer Association is proud to induct Mr. Leonard Hughes Jr. of Nashville, Michigan into the Michigan Draft Horse Pullers Hall of Fame.

Lenny's pulling career began in 1978.  Leonard Hughes Sr.'s horse pulling involvement undoubtedly had something to do with it!

Thirty-two years later, Lenny continues to support the pulling industry with both lightweight and heavyweight teams.  Along the road have been a dairy farm and hog farming.  Now it is beef cattle and Hughes Logging, buying, cutting, skidding, hauling and selling timber.

Mr. Hughes won the National Lightweight Championship at the Hillsdale County Fair in 1998.  He won the State of Michigan Lightweight Championship in 2005 at the Livingston County, Fowlerville Fair.  Mr. Hughes hooked to the World Record breaking load of 4,150 pounds in 1991 and also in 2004!  His first place wins and horsemanship awards number well over 100!  Lenny served as a Michigan Dynamometer Association Director from 1990 to 1999.

The enthusiasm Lenny has for horse pulling is reflected in his family.  Lenny and Juliet's three daughters, Tracy, (Mrs. Billy Keegan), Heather, (Mrs. Mike Newsome) and Hope Hughes continue the family tradition.  The four grandchildren are pulling enthusiasts as well. 

Coffee served by Juliet around the table over the past 30 plus years should be measured by the gallon, not the cup!  Many a great meal has been enjoyed by pullers and their families as well.  The Hughes home at 100 North Price Road certainly has an open door policy, whether it is a "stay over" between pulls, getting help with your team, or just a great visit.  It was for these very reasons that Bobby Berry of Sulligent, Alabama nominated Len Hughes for the Hall of Fame. 

Lenny is proud of his horse pulling legacy and grateful for all the past pullers, their sacrifices and dedication to keep horse pulling alive. 

Thank you Lenny Hughes for your support of quality horse pulling and the desire to help others.
