Tyler and Erin Hufstetler

Tyler and Erin are natives to the Dallas area. While their hometowns have been transformed with the growth in North Texas, Windmill Stables has consistently provided a safe family friendly atmosphere for horse and rider. In addition to horses and chickens, you will find our four kids working around the stables! Tyler grew up raising Quarter Horses and other livestock. He works to teach their kids the same lessons that he learned - hard work, selfless service, discipline - that accompany raising animals.

Tyler and Erin are graduates of West Point and Texas A&M University.
