Roudy Hughes

General Manager

Trainer/Farrier


When Roudy was in little britches he discovered his love for horses. 

From his first interaction, he’s always had an undeniable connection. 

Roudy grew up on a farm and his foster dad was a farmer and a farrier by trade. 


His interest in farrier work began with his foster dad who he started learning the trade 

from at just 13, In 1981, he went to farrier school in Texas for formal training. One of his 

favorite experiences as a farrier was being able to work on horses at the 

Two Hearts Ranch, a supplier of horses for western movies. 


After that, he entered into the Army in 1982. During his time in the Army, he joined the Military Rodeo Association, rode in the IFR and the NFR. After he was discharged in 1987, he went to California and filled his pro permit in the PRCA. During that time, he continued his work as a farrier, training horses, and cowboying/ranching, then began his career in Civil Work.


After retiring from the rodeo circuit in 1996, Roudy decided to go to night school and graduated in 1997 with his Associates degree in Construction Management.  He began as a heavy equipment operator and quickly became a foreman. From there, he worked his way up to construction manager/superintendent. All the while, he never stopped “cowboying”. 


Besides his passion for horses, Roudy has a heart for Equine Therapy 

for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). While living in Louisiana, 

he organized and hosted several rides for children with ASD. Having the opportunity 

to offer horse therapy to children with autism is another dream come true. 


Although he rarely has downtime, he also enjoys writing 

cowboy poetry. In fact, several of his poems have been published.

Growing up in Florida, Tiffany’s experience with horses was limited 

to casual riding. While she’s always had a love for them, she didn’t 

experience how magnificent horses truly are until she met Roudy. It was easy 

to understand his love for horses. Now, she shares that passion.


Roudy’s dream was to start a boarding and training facility and Tiffany 

always had aspirations of owning a business. Their individual goals easily turned 

into one goal, so they set out on their journey to establish Rainy Day Farm.


Although she has less equine experience than the rest of the team, Tiffany brings 

a different element to Rainy Day Farm. With 10 years experience as a Paralegal 

and more than 16 years experience in the banking industry including Branch Manager, outside sales and Compliance & Operations Manager, her knowledge and expertise in these industries has prepared her for successfully managing the business. Tiffany’s ability to manage the business side of the farm is vital to its success. Doing what she does best, allows the rest of the team to focus on what they do best.
