Tree recommendations for open field

This is a horse pasture, we have 2 horses. The tree in the middle of the field died. It was not useful for shade for horses and was not nice to look at. I would love to plant live oak or something equally magnificent with beatiful crooked branches that provides shade.

This view is what I see from the kitchen and deck. The tree needs to grow medium to fast, and be tall and I do not want a willow or paper birch since we have them in other places.

I was thinking other options Japanese maple or magnolia. We live in ny zone 5b

could you recommend something? Thank You
