Chantal Wigan is an International FEI Dressage competitor, trainer, coach and an accomplished Australian Grand Prix Dressage rider. The dressage horse art we created for CW Dressage is for her new US headquarters in Hamilton, Virginia. Chantal asked for a logo that showcased the bond between horse and rider, without showing the rider. The hand-drawn art we designed for this logo composes a riders’ hand holding the reins of the bridle to show a softness and suppleness that is representative of upper level dressage. This logo was created to highlight the care and compassion Chantal puts into her services and emphasize how the connection between horse and rider plays a paramount role in achieving their goals.
