About

It is my artistic goal to capture the essence of the horse with minimal lines.

Ever since I fell in love with horses at the age of 7 I began to draw them constantly. During high school I was in the advanced placement art class where I studied Chinese calligraphy, a skill I would use again later on. I started Equine Spirit Art when I graduated high school and etched horse designs into wooden objects like peg racks, jewelry boxes, and toy chests. In 2009 I was inspired by my aunt Evelyn King to create a horse design for a silver pendant. The lines could not touch because the design would be laser-cut out of the silver. Using my calligraphy drawing skills I created the Spirit Horse design and that inspired my current collection of designs. I love to explore different avenues of art, working with different mediums, textures, and always trying to think outside the box. This year (2014) I began to create art on horseback, an idea I had over two years ago. I ride Rovandio by a large canvas, using dressage movements to help me land the right brushstrokes.

Once I created the Spirit Horse design I thought it might look nice on a tee shirt. After cutting my own stencil and hand-painting it onto a shirt I knew that hiring a screenprinter would be a lot easier! And that was the beginning of SandraB. Designs. Since 2009 my products have been seen at popular equine venues like the Equine Affaire in MA and OH, the Horse World Expo in PA, Everything Equine in VT, Red Hills Horse Trials in FL, and many other dressage & Friesian shows throughout New England. I also sell products to popular catalogs including Wild Horsefeathers and Dressage Extensions. My products have also been featured in magazines like Horse Illustrated, Dog Fancy and Dressage Today. You can find my products in a few select stores and I will offer wholesale to interested buyers. On the dressage side of my business I offer private lessons, clinics, judging at schooling shows, and training. I love to teach and inspire others to think of riding as a dance, to be more positive in their training and to help them understand the language of the horse in a better way.
