Marcus Hutka, MS, DVM
Marcus Hutka established Equine Partners Veterinary Services, PLLC, in 2012, with a goal of providing excellence in equine lameness and medical care, as well as excellence in customer service to the greater Houston area. Dr. Hutka has taken care of horses since he began practicing in 2005. During this time, he has expanded services to include a fully equipped mobile unit, with digital radiography and ultrasound, capable of imaging a horse stall side or in the middle of a show ring or pasture, as well as a fully equipped haul-in facility in the Field Store area.

In addition to expanding his veterinary services, Dr. Hutka and his wife, Kelli, have expanded their family to include two young boys and two beautiful little girls. In his spare time, Dr. Hutka enjoys helping with Boy Scout trips with the boys, attending all kinds of kids athletic games, watching the girls grow in their interest of horses (and art, and gymnastics, and 4-H, and Girl Scouts!), and helping with the Whitehall 4-H club. He also finds time to volunteer for the Waller County Fair and Rodeo as the PRCA Veterinarian, and supports several local Cowboy church events, youth riders, and drill teams.
Darby Horne, DVM
Dr. Darby Horne grew up in the North Houston area has been involved with horses from an early age. At 10 years old, she began riding horses and raising weanlings for the Montgomery County Fair to save money for college. Her local horse show experience quickly advanced to competing across the nation in the Amercian Quarter Horse Association show circuits. Her success in the competition arena led her to a spot on the Texas A&M Equestrian Team.

Once becoming a student-athlete, Darby became the first-ever equestrian athlete to become president of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. In 2012, Darby graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science and a Minor in Spanish.

Upon graduation from veterinary school, she moved to Pilot Point, Texas (horse country USA), and was an associate at Mid-South Equine Sports Medicine and Surgery. She and her husband, Ty, and their animals have relocated back home and are so excited to live in and serve her hometown community. Their hobbies include spending time outside, rock climbing, and building things together.
