With Fall, came the end of show season for Team Sundance, and we enjoyed a few weeks of beautiful colors around the barn before the chill of an early winter settled in for a stay. Where our last post found us coming home from California, this one finds us longing to return, as Staff has spent the last week blowing out waters at night to keep the freeze from setting into the pipes.

Sundance Equestrian Industries, Ltd. provides boarding and training services to the local hunter/jumper equestrian community.
Located in Woodinville, Washington, we offer training for both the horse and rider looking to compete and have fun in a team environment. We are less than 15 minutes from Redmond, less than 20 minutes from Bellevue, less than 30 minutes from Seattle, and less than 40 minutes from Issaquah (on a good traffic day).
The training program was developed by Katherine Wade-Easley incorporating techniques and concepts developed over a lifetime of riding, instructing and study of proven equestrian methods. In fact, Katherine is one of the first five trainers in the state of Washington to be certified as a Trainer by the United States Hunter/Jumper Association (USHJA).
Katherine and her team work with everyone from the beginner horse and rider, to the horse and rider competing on the “A” circuit. A “team approach” is emphasized in lessons and at competitions. This fosters a positive, supportive experience, and the barn enjoys a warm, welcoming environment.
If you're interested in lessons, bringing your horse in for training, or looking to buy or sell a horse, please feel free to contact us to set up a time to tour the facility and meet our staff and horses.
We were very excited to learn earlier this year that Antarès Sellier France was considering Sundance Equestrian for a sponsorship. For some time, we have expressed our appreciation for the high-level of quality and attention to detail Antarès demonstrates for their saddles. We were very eager to align ourselves with these shared qualities. And now it's offical, we are the only Training Center in Washington and one of two training centers in the Pacific Northwest (along with Rich Fellers Stables) sponsored by this elite company.
In addition to being sponsored by Antarès, we are being provided the honored opportunity to act as sales representative for their entire product line. We work in conjunction with their highly-educated, knowlegeable staff to make sure each rider is fitted with a saddle that is uniquely theirs. This relationship affords us access to the world's top saddle experts and the results for the client are nothing short of amazing. Please call us first if you are interested in a new saddle or tack. We're sure we can save you the hassle of looking anywhere else.
We are looking forward to a long and mutally-beneficial relationship with this great organization who shares our values of exceptional quality, attention to detail and a passion for everything we do.
