09/2013... Hello from the Flying UW!!
Hello Sandy, Twister  & Jud!!
I know this may come out as a very odd email but.... I would like to thank all three of you again for the time & personal judgement you have put into our colts! I cannot tell you enough that we are so very appreciative of the program you all implement in training them, and the piece of mind it has brought both myself & my parents knowing that I'm not going to be a gully plug somewhere out on the ranch that they are going to have to hunt up.  Your honesty & respect above all has been most appreciated.  I am forever grateful since these qualities are so rare now a days.  Please tell Jud & Twister & especially yourself thank you for being who and what you are.
Hope you all are doing well and are happy.

Katie Cline

Hi Twister: My husband and I can't thank you enough for the work that you did with our horses.  Lacey, as you know, is a young horse and during our busy season, she needed the time and attention that you were able to spend with her.  We had recently purchased Shala, an older horse who was difficult for us to handle, not to mention overweight.  She was aggressive and despondent in turns and we had not been able to ride her, although she was generally easy to care for and worked OK with ground training.  After we had sent her to you, I then found out that her original owner had put Shala through some hard halter training, and after she had been sold to the owner I bought her from, she was in a stall for over a year without any exercise.  

But after 2 months under your care, Shala came home an entirely different horse.  She looked fantastic - in perfect health and no longer overweight.  She is easy to ride even for a beginner like me.  She gets along much better with Lacey.  And as you explained to me that Shala is a little ADHD, and needs to be gently reminded of her course, it's easier for me to understand and care for her.  

Lacey is growing up nicely and is becoming a great family horse.  My daughter rides her and the cowboys from the cutting arena across the way are all interested in taking her out - she has some great moves! We are talking about the horse here!!!! Not my daughter!!!  

Again, we can't thank you enough!
Danny & Melissa Meyer, Az

Love the training videos... if this doesn't show that you put the best foundation on all your prospects then people MUST be blind. My nine year old and my six year old that you broke can be used for anything and are used for everything. roping and working all ends of the cattle ranch, I compete in barrel racing and always bring home a check and a quiet and sound horse. these horses you have trained are using  their heads to think and ENJOY everything I do with them. I send everybody I meet that is in need of a trainer to you Twister, you ARE the best. Always Jeanne Keitz, Az.

Horse will experience rough terrain - will help him become handy and calm, through rocks, boulders, cactus etc. Horse will travel relaxed - he will get miles, experience, exposure to livestock,traveling through the brush, dogs and critters and ditches. He will be exposed to swinging a rope. We really want to know from the customer what he or she wants and will individually customize the training. For instance, if a customer wants a rope horse, we will accentuate swinging ropes and exposure to cattle.

( Twister is the trainer and the sequence of training events in each horse will be determined from his experience and what is best for the is his judgment call on such issues. This is what you pay us for....experience and making sound judgements regarding your individual horses needs. We welcome customer participation in outlining a suitable program for your horse....we want you to understand your horse's individual needs. Thank you..... )

Horse Training 101 is: If you aren't raised on horses do yourself a favor & learn from others, get a coach.
