I have had the pleasure of being an intern at Twisted Tree Farm for over 2 years. I came here expecting to learn how to become a better rider, but I have gained so much more than that. The staff and clients at Twisted Tree Farm are extremely welcoming and always there to help each other. I can say with complete certainty that TTF is the best barn I've been a part of.
When my husband first stumbled upon Twisted Tree Farm, he strongly encouraged me to go see the place for myself. Having grown up riding horses, I had some knowledge of other barns and riding facilities and their trainers. Prior experience considered, I must say that I am so impressed with Janet and her assistant trainers, the facility, and the incredible community that make up Twisted Tree Farm. Janet and her staff were professional and accommodating in helping me find the right horse for my level, preferences, and goals. Furthermore, I took my seven-year-old daughter for lessons and she is now in LOVE with riding Ginger. Twisted Tree is an exceptional place to enhance your riding skills and horsemanship, and it is also a loving, supportive and fun community. I am so happy that we found Twisted Tree Farm!
"My daughter grew up with Janet Hischer. I have never seen another sport or program instill such confidence, work ethic, self esteem, discipline, and responsibility in a group of young people in the same way as Twisted Tree's program."

When we moved here from Texas three years ago we tried several barns in our search for “the” barn. We found it at Twisted Tree. Janet and her team have given our daughter Rebecca a place to belong, one that gives her confidence in her riding ability and constant encouragement in her quest to improve her jumping skills. Thanks Janet for all you have done for Rebecca.
-Sincerely, Phil & Ruth Marsteller
My daughter (16) has been riding at Twisted Tree for 3 years. We had just moved to AZ and drove by one of their open house signs. She has grown so much intellectually, emotionally, socially and of course athletically as an equestrian. The responsibility she demonstrates as a result of being involved in something other than social media and other normal high school distractions is so reassuring and I love the confidence and stability that comes with having a extra support system. Janet, Larry, and the people at Twisted Tree have become extended family. I feel so lucky to have stumbled across their sign! If you are reading this, you are probably looking into horse lessons or training. I highly recommend Twisted Tree. Janet Hischer is an accomplished equestrian and well-respected in this sport.
"Sammy has grown up with Twisted Tree. She started riding with Janet at age 6. Now at 17 she is an amazing rider and horsewoman. More importantly, Janet's program taught her discipline, responsibility, the value of hard work and the importance of giving back to her community. Our family has made lifelong friends with the owners, staff and other families at TTF."

"My daughter had an interest in riding horses, so we signed her up for lesson. Now, less than a year later, she has a PASSION for everything she has learned and experienced at Twisted Tree Farm. Sydney has been an inspiration and a role model to both my children. Janet and Larry have welcomed us into the Twisted Tree Family and we are so very grateful. We look forward to a long future with all of you."
