Sandra, thanks for coming to Crown and Shield stables and providing all of us with an exceptional day of instruction. I loved your easy going spirit and intimate dialogue with each of the students, and as a fellow rider and parent , I learned so much just by listening and watching each lesson. I love your web site and designs as well. Thanks again for a delightful day!

Sandra teaches dressage lessons regularly in the areas near her home in Dover-Foxcroft, Maine. During the winter months she also travels to northern Florida and Georgia. Currently she make weekly trips to surrounding towns in Maine like Bangor, Skowhegan, Islesboro, Augusta, and Lincoln. Please contact her by email, phone, or Facebook for current rates. She is happy to travel further for clinics, click here for more information.




Sandra tries to maintain a flexible schedule to accommodate her student's busy lives. She will do her best to work with you anytime it is convenient, early in the morning, afternoon or evening depending on travel and weather conditions. Please try to book your lessons 1-2 weeks in advance but don't hesitate to call for a possible opening.

I have worked with Sandra for several years and it still amazes me the immediate connection she makes with any horse she comes in contact with. Her classical approach makes lessons fun and informative. She clearly explains what she is teaching and the desired outcome. Just making me aware of how I use my body (seat and leg) and the effect it has on my horse has changed my horse’s performance tremendously. Surely explains why my horse now moves more forward and free! Thank you for continually coming to CT. We love you!

Sandra's lessons are currently scheduled for a full hour. If you would like to book a half hour session please ask. You may book a private lesson or a semi-private. She can teach groups but would prefer to keep it one-on-one for the best results.

Just back from a training session at the barn and am blown away by the tremendous work I saw from Kelsey and Bruizer as a result of their lesson last week with Sandra Beaulieu! WOW! Everything they were taught came into play and they looked so great in the doing! Thank you, Sandy — so very much!

Teaching Style

Sandra has an energetic, hands-on style of teaching. She will give detailed descriptions and try her best to explain concepts so that they are understandable for all ages and rider ability.  She prefers to be in the arena with her students, helping moment-to-moment for maximum results. For safety reasons she will also stay in the arena if the rider needs emergency help.

Sandra has been coming to my farm for a few years now. Her teaching style and expertise is absolutely amazing. Her knowledge and passion for horses and horse training is shown in how she works with the horses or horse and rider. She has an amazing natural talent for both teaching horse and rider. I look forward to each time she comes to the farm and what I can learn from her. Sandra is a true inspiration to me and my business and I am so thankful for her mentoring and friendship.
