Sundance, Ogden’s Dancing Horse and his owner Ron Gardiner are quite famous at the Ogden’s Famer’s Market in Ogden, Utah especially among the children of those who come. Ron has made up trading cards of pictures of Sundance that children love to collect.
This photograph was chosen as his #22 trading card of Sundance in 2011
He usually has another photographer take the photos for these cards every year, but he found my photo here on Red Bubble and contacted me for permission to use it. It was fun to see him handing out the card with my image on it!
Sundance is a very talented horse. He can kick a ball, bow, dance. I have pictures of all these, but thought I would introduce you to Sundance first. They perform at the Ogden Farmer’s Market and at Birthday Parties and other functions all non-profit.
Sundance is very patient with the little children and he allows them to pet him and even kick the ball back and forth. He always draws an audience and is a favorite with the children who come to the Farmer’s Market.
I took this picture as they were both walking from one side of the city park to the other. In a lot of ways they match stride, looks, and sometimes even facial expression.
