Ride-Along with Sundance School of Riding and our virtual lessons on our YouTube Channel at 

Sundance School Of Riding - YouTube




Welcome to Sundance School of Riding. We are a schooling facility located in the heart of horse country at Arvada Indoor Equestrian Center, dedicated in teaching the fundamentals to the vast array of equine studies. We are not a boarding facility, as we are focused on providing a relaxing, fun and safe, learning environment, for horse care and riding lessons in both English and Western disciplines, summer camps, equine assisted activities, and overall horsemanship.

We have Summer Camps for ages 7 and up and we teach all riding levels for ages 9 and up in all-year-round semi-private lessons; horses and tack provided. We have helmets to rent for an additional charge.

We have set up online payments for your convenience. If you are able to pay for your lesson before arriving to the facility, we encourage you to pay through our Venmo account mikia-parker. Prices for lessons are $75 per student per hour long lesson; and $5 rental fee if you need to rent a school helmet.

If you have any questions or if you would like a new student questionnaire, email us at, as that will be the best way for us to respond.



One Hour Riding Lessons


In these semi-private lessons for ages 9 and up, our goal is to teach the entire process of getting their school horse ready, riding, and then care for horse after their ride. When first learning this process, half of our lesson will be spent learning safety on the ground and the other half riding. Once the instructor and students are comfortable with the students tacking up with only little supervision, we will spend the majority of our lesson working on the horse.

Horse Pop Up Camps


Here are the dates to our Summer Camps for 2024. Each 3-day camp goes from 10am-3pm and is $375 per camper per date, with a $75 nonrefundable deposit to hold the spot that goes towards the total cost of camp.

With the beginner equestrian in mind, ages 7 and up get to spend three fun filled days learning how to work with ponies, horses, and drafts. We will spend one day on the ground focusing on safety and daily horse management. Another day will focus on equine communications and connections, through learning how to ride, while a third day will be all about dance and gymnastics on the horse.

Continuation Camp is designed for individuals who have had previous camp experience. We will be offering additional equine activities as our beginner camps and is structured to continue learning and training from previous camps.

Each newly added three-day Spring Break and Summer Break Pop-Up Camp is 10am-3pm, and it is $375 per student, with a $75 nonrefundable deposit to hold the spot that goes towards the total cost of camp; remaining amount due by start of camp. Spaces are limited, email us at to reserve your spot. Our Venmo is mikia-parker or we can take a credit card over the phone. We do not offer refunds or discounts for partial camps. Loss of deposit if changing camp dates after sign up.

Past summers we have seen over 700 kids come through Arvada Indoor Equestrian Center to experience the wonderful world of horses, many for the very first time; through our many offerings including our own summer horse camps, daily riding lessons, camps with Majestic View Nature Center and working with Avid4 Adventure.

Adult Riding Lessons

Yes we teach adults! We teach all skill levels from beginner adults who always wanted to try out riding but were never able to for one reason or another, to returning riders who want to brush up on their skillsets, no matter how long the hiatus. We structure these one hour lessons to what your goals and dreams are for your equestrian adventures.

Located in the heart of Arvada horse country, we are an educational facility focused on the equine studies and various riding disciplines to enhance the relationship and bond between student and school horse. At Sundance School of Riding, our instructors focus on the entire well-being of horse and rider, by teaching the fundamentals of overall horse care to more advanced techniques of horseback riding, in hopes of one day our students being able to own and care for their own horses.

In the safe, fun, and educational environment of Arvada Indoor Equestrian Center, we provide school horses and ponies to our students of different riding levels. Each lesson is priced as a semi-private lesson, which means between 1-3 students per instructor during a training session. This includes getting the horse, grooming, tacking up, riding, cooling down, untacking and putting away the horse. We provide horses and tack; all riders are required to wear an ASTM approved equestrian helmet. We have helmets to rent for an additional charge. All riders are required to wear boots with a 1/4 inch heel that will not fall off. Tall English or Western boots; paddock boots with half chaps are good for growing children. Close fitting, stretchy pants like breeches, jeggings or leggings work great for English riding, and Jeans work best for Western riding. Any gloves suitable for driving a car tend to work well for riding.


Our principal goal is to maintain the beauty and heritage of the equine community in the ever changing landscape of urban Colorado.
