You can see Shawn Cross and Twister's Freestyle Performance here: Twister Freestyle Performance Although Twister has come a long way in his training. He is certainly not a horse for a beginner rider. Twister needs to be with an experienced handler only! He is a lot of horse with a strong flight instinct. If he gets scared or lacks confidence he will bolt, leaving fencing, gates, etc., as no object to him. He lacks confidence and needs an extremely experienced, confident and patient handler. Once he trusts you, he will typically do anything you ask of him, however, he looks to you for every step. He knows if you lack confidence and will test you all the way. Due to him being adopted and returned in the past, we will have a must stricter set of adoption guidelines to those interested in adopting Twister. We don't want anyone to get hurt and certainly don't want Twister to fall into the wrong hands and cause him any further stress or heartache.
