    Yea, I'm still going to check it out no matter what. It's the only place I can take lessons at that aren't an hour or so away. Here are some more opinions I found on the web.

    ~"I spent a couple months out there riding. At first I got a good vibe from the barn and the people were welcoming, but as time went on I grew frustrated with the way I was being treated as a client. The two trainers (the twins): lack knowledge about the equestrian industry, are extremely disorganized, and inconsistent. They canceled lessons more often then I actually got to ride. Don't let them fool you, the barn is new but far from attractive: dusty, dirty, windy, 100 yards from the noisy train track, and in a trailer-park. Although the barn selection in Tucson is small, shop around and don't waste your time with Doubletake."

    ~"Well, having spent a week having lessons from Jennie and being a qualified English riding instructor myself back in England I have no idea what the previous comments are on about, both the girls know there stuff and barns are fantastic, yes there is a train track about 200 yds away but all I ever saw was freight going about 10 miles an hour.Can't imagine a better place to learn nor a more knowledgable pair of trainers who do nothing but incourage you but do let you know what is wrong with your riding. I can only assume that the previous comments are from people who either are awe of the place and want to put it down or don't like what they have been told. So from someone who has been involed with horses as an owner and trainer for over 40 years and from a place where there is only English horse riding you cannot go far wrong and would board my horses here without any qualms what so ever, and to be trained by someone who just fell short of riding for the USA olympic team what more would you want, the facilites are top notch and the horses ar great so go see for yourself you wont be disapointed."

    ~"I am moving in next week and can't wait. I took two lessons already and had a gas. Great jumps and a perfect layout for the serious rider. Today was 106F, the barns were shady and cool and the soda machine is right next to my stall. Great job you girls. Way to go!!!"

    ~"they are great and always concerened about safety I recomend them highly. P.s.i've known them since I was a baby!"

    So basically only one person had a problem. I mean not every barn is made for everyone. She's probably just someone who can't take criticism well! So I'm really excited to go check it out! I can't wait, and I'm going to get lotsa pics!

    Hey, the barn looks great and spacious. Nice open arena to bake in AZ heat (yeah, I live in AZ too right now ;))

    One thing I was wondering, maybe I just don't see it on the pictures, but do they have some pastures as well?
