Painting on horseback in New Gloucester

Sandra Beaulieu of Dover-Foxcroft rides Rovandio while leading a demonstration called “Art on Horseback: Painting While Riding with Your Equine Partner” during the Horse Professional Demonstration Expo at the Healing Through Horses facility in New Gloucester on Saturday. Beaulieu said she has been involved in art and riding since she was a child. So after 20 years, she decided to combine her two passions and paint while riding her horse. Beaulieu’s demonstration was one of 20 offered from a variety of experts who donated their time to raise money for the center whose mission is to help people through therapy with horses.
Sandra Beaulieu wipes her paint-covered hands on her riding breeches. “He is very focused, like a professor,” Beaulieu said of why her horse Rovandio is a good horse on which to paint. “He wants to be a good boy,” she said, “so he is a good listener.”

The acrylic painting will be at the facility and bids will be accepted through November. Money raised will benefit the center whose mission is to help people through therapy with horses.
