Ellen Sauer of Aalborg, Denmark is deeply passionate about teaching and training the art of Academic Equitation. Our artists have long had a vision of showcasing the distinct characteristics of a PRE in as few lines as possible, so we were ecstatic when Ellen showed us her classically schooled Andalusian horses. Using her beautiful Spanish dressage horses as our inspiration, we created an Andalusian Horse line art design depicting a beautifully collected PRE moving quartered away from the viewer.
Ellen’s approach is based on Classical Dressage, learning theories, and equine behavior with a unique emphasis on what she calls “collaboration” with the horse-that is, communicating what the rider is asking the horse to do in an effective manner. Ellen is able to help riders understand these theoretical perspectives and put them into practice with both in-hand and under saddle exercises.
Exquisite details like the horsehair mosquero on the horse’s bridle set this stunning custom logo design apart from standard Andalusian horse clip art. We used a hand lettered, bold sans serif font to highlight Ellen’s business name with the inclusion of a custom hand-drawn integrated letter S tail for added beauty and an added element of novelty. It was an honor to create the likeness of a well-trained, willing Andalusian for Ellen’s original logo design.
