Twisted Tree Farm Equestrian Riding School
Since opening the barn doors back in 1984, Twisted Tree Farm's training facility has both fostered champion riders and horses and helped beginning equestrians first climb into the stirrups. Owner Janet Hischer began her own riding career at the age of 9, and today she oversees an expansive ranch peppered with cacti and stone alleyways. Resident mares keep cool with misters and ceiling fans in the 27-stall stable, perfecting their novels while waiting patiently for buckaroos to take them into the exercise ring or out on the natural trails. Boarding, training, and grooming services keep serious riders' steeds healthy and happy, and year-round group or private lessons let students of all experience levels hone their skills. Between saddling sessions, visitors are welcome to relax with beverages in the cantina, where couches and Internet access envelop them in Southwestern comforts as the Arizona sunset lights up the sky.
