Each year, the American Quarter Horse Association honors breeders who have dedicated their livelihoods to maintaining the integrity of the American Quarter Horse breed. These horsemen, horsewomen and their families see their biggest accomplishments and proudest moments in the horses they breed.

Windy Hill has made an impact on the American Quarter Horse industry by breeding notable horses that include Joe Mistys Girl, Misty Paloma, Tysons Beauty, Tysons Melody, Petes Perfection, Star Chick, Windy Rip, Ima Paul F Star, Paul F Flash, Gorgeous Lynn and other earners of performance and racing registers of merit, rodeo awards and AQHA titles. People who drove by their pastures would stop to marvel at the mares and their foals and the family would take the opportunity to share their American Quarter Horses and an important message.

While Windy Hill produced many successful foals over 62 years, their greatest accomplishment and purpose was their faith and to bring honor and recognition to their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Horses were used as a part of their ministry and they are proud to share the message.
