I am working on more videos this years to showcase our horses for sale...Ann Ellis, one of our clients got me started with a great little, simple camera. From that nudge in the right direction I'am very thankful that she encouraged me to create videos.... I am having fun with theses projects & soon will have more videos online. Also, visit our website video page for previews of what you can expect from our horse training program & horses for sale and/or sold thru our videos.
This is our reputation:
Honest job... Honest price... Durn good horse!
WE ARE UNIQUE:
Working Ranch setting, we sell ranch horses, train horses,work cattle, train students. Our mares are turned out, the babies grow up outside. Our program gives horses a well balanced life, they are not penned up in a stall. Those in training get 25-27 days of riding each month: outside miles and arena exercises.
Let’s get serious about excellence in horses and horsemanship.
Pray for our Troops, God Bless the USA !!

Alittle about Mrs. Heller....
I am one of these gals who has lived long enough & is truly blessed & grateful to enjoy this western cowboy lifestyle.
From as long as I can remember I dreamed of being married to a cowboy, ranching & anything that had to do with a horse…I wasn’t born horseback but started riding in early high school years….hooked for life. Western lifestyle is a “disease, of which there is no cure!.”
In 1985 I married Twister Heller & we both worked our hardest for whatever we found to do. Between the two of us we have 3 children: Traci Beck (Texas), Lisa Livingston (Georgia) & Jud (here with us on the facility). We finished raising a family, we prospered & starved out some too, which was a great inspiration to launching Twister’s horse training business in 1994. He was always training horses on no matter what outfit he worked but we had dreams of having a home of our own. We camped in an old batchlor’s camp (also known as the “Sugar Shack”) north of Congress,Az, worked hard & took care of the camp & took care of business. The pens were great, the shack was just that…a shack but we had a lot of hope.
Now, I don’t tote buckles or titles of any special recognition except did a lot of what has to be done from riding horses, grooming horses, chores, cooking for a crew. I am what you call also a “Domestic Engineer, Office Manager & Webmaster (sort of) & Video Media Specialist.” All of this resume gets me an “on call” degree in the business of life. I doctored plenty of cowboys & a husband who is in pretty good shape for 68 yrs old this year.
Well, to sum it all up: There are plenty of memories, some wonderful, some I’d rather forget, but most of all I am a blessed lady. The hard work never did scare me, in my younger days it was how I survived, then found out it was a life preference….just never figured out how to get paid well for it!!! At least not in payrolls….but, today, I can declare we have seen “the goodness of God in the land of the living”…I love our lifestyle.
