Our Story

Windscreens began somewhere, but ours began in 1971 with someone.  John Verde a Dallas tennis pro, early in his business career, was teaching and selling court equipment.  John had long desired owning his own horse.  Without a barn and only a small pasture presented a weather problem.  The issue was resolved by attaching to his garage a lean-to shed with a tin roof and nailing used tennis court windscreens to the sides.  Soon, his first horse “Five” had a shelter!

Some years later, Jim Willoughby a NRHA Hall of Fame member wondered if using the screens seen around tennis courts would block wind & rain on his open-sided hay barn, but still allow ventilation.  After calling around he found John’s business in Ft. Worth, Texas. Being intrigued by the call from a professional cowboy, a meeting was planned in Bowie.  The dilemma was how to hold the screens in place without the support of a chain link fence.  Credit Jim with the idea that attaching metal rods around edges of the openings would allow the screens to be pulled tight.

Many people nationwide have contacted us over the years with their ideas and needs, on many diverse structures for vision barriers, weather protection and privacy… benefiting people, animals and equipment.

When the call came in from Luke he was worried about his cattle. It had been one of the worst heat waves in years and his cattle needed shade, NOW! The next day we had a plan and fabrication begun. Problem solved with cool shade for the cows and a happy rancher!

“We are thrilled”… In November 2018, our multipurpose barn with open sides took on a totally new dimension… merging our ideas with Windscreen Supply’s guidance, we installed the screens. Immediately our barn was weather protected. Dry stalls, comfortable horses, moisture free hay, trailers protected, and tack safeguarded. “ Working in the barn has never been so pleasant”

Gary Green explains, “We’ve used other brands of tarps over the years but the quality of the Strokemaster windscreens far exceeded our expectations. The appearance was so strong that after a dare, in my boots, I walked on the top of our water tank weather screens.”
