Theresa Tyler - Office Manager
Theresa was born and raised on a small family farm just northeast of Oklahoma City, Ok. Growing up she spent every moment of her childhood as near horses as possible and knew early on that this was her lifelong calling. Finding jobs in any barn that would take her, she has seen the equine industry from many angles. In her high school and college years, she began working with children, and soon found a passion for introducing the amazing gift that is the horse to people who haven’t been blessed with the opportunity to spend time with them. Through years of customer service, office, farm, and business training, she honed her skillset, while always continuing with a second job in the equine industry.
Theresa joined Bob Moore Farms in 2019, working in the barns, foaling stalls, and breeding program. In January 2022, she was thrilled to move to her current position as Office Manager. “I am incredibly blessed and humbled at the opportunities afforded me by Bob Moore Farms. Every moment spent at the Farms is a learning and growing experience. I am honored to be able to work with and learn from Mikayla and Phillip daily. I enjoy meeting our clients, both experienced horse people & newer horse lovers and am frequently amazed at how everyone has knowledge to share. It is my goal to leave every customer with a better day than they woke up in…”
In her off hours, Theresa is a PATH Intl. certified therapeutic riding instructor, as well as spending many hours training and teaching lessons at her home farm in Luther Ok.
