Katherine found success through hard work, and she strives to instill this same ethic in her students. At Sundance, we take pride in being able to offer opportunities for young people to work to help pay for lessons and training. Our working students not only have fun, but they develop life skills along the way.
Stabling is provided for our horses in training. Each of our 12 stalls has a generous window to the outside, and is open facing the arena within eyesight of stablemates. Stalls are cleaned 3 times daily, and bedding is provided for your horse's liking and comfort.
It's no secret that people bond through shared experiences, and many Sundance working students have formed lasting friendships that persist outside of the barn. Being with horses is fun, and it's great to share this with others.
The things that we earn through honest effort are the ones that we appreciate the most. As you gain skills and confidence and start finding success in the show ring, you'll be all the more rewarded for having worked hard for it.
At Sundance, we attend horse shows to measure progress against our riding ambitions and our horse’s training... and we have a great time while doing so! We only show at venues where the conditions are favorable to the well being of our horses, and where the atmosphere is positive and welcoming for all riders. Contact us to receive our show schedule.
Belonging to our winning team doesn’t necessarily mean you will win everything all the time. Let’s be real: where’s the fun in that? What it does mean is that, even with the inevitable "learning opportunities" sprinkled along the way, you’ll be part of a team with an unfaltering winning spirit.
Who doesn't like to win? By showing with Sundance, you'll have the opportunity to score your own personal victories, whether that is pulling off a Champion's ribbon at Thunderbird, or simply attaining a new personal best in the irons. And at the end of the day, we're all winners for improving our riding!
At Sundance your horse will receive the professional training rides it needs to perform to its fullest potential with you in the irons. Each interaction with your horse is an opportunity for us to help train him or her. Your horse will learn to better understand what you are asking and how to correctly perform tasks in a way beneficial to both horse and rider. At Sundance there isn’t a regimented training routine: it can be and often is quite tailored for each horse. Contact us to talk through specifics.
Katherine genuinely enjoys teaching and educating her clients in the art and science of riding. She and her assistant trainers will help you gain the knowledge and technique you need to build a strong, lasting partnership with your horse.
Sundance has several lesson school horses available for young riders or for adults who haven't yet found their perfect equine partner. And these “ponies” know their stuff; all are safe, well-trained, and able teachers.
Sundance partners with qualified professionals in the care of your horse, including Dr. Toby Ewing, DVM for veterinary care, Alistair Nimmo and Justin Mullins for farrier services, and Sue Huck for equine bodywork.
Boarding with Sundance affords many opportunities to enjoy your horse, and not just on lesson days. Local trails provide rewarding riding opportunities for you and your equine partner almost any time of the year.
We like to think that Sundance is a pretty friendly place. Here you will be able to share your passion for the horse with other like-minded individuals, and have a great time making new friends, both two-footed and four!
Whether you aspire to become a competitive showjumper or just wish to gain greater personal riding skills, becoming a Sundance rider can help you get closer to your goals. Katherine is dedicated to the success and growth of each of her clients.
