Tyler Stillings of Washington, Pa., is the latest in our series of profiles about interesting characters around the state. Stillings, a graduate of Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, never wanted to do anything but work with horses, as his mother and grandfather did. He trains and drives about 20 horses at his own stables and at the Meadows Racetrack and Casino in Washington County, Pa.

These photos and video first appeared in the Washington Observer-Reporter, a media partner of PublicSource.
