DIAR PRIZE WINNER SUPPORTS ARTS CHARITY The Society of Equestrian Artists (SEA) enjoyed a lively and celebratory Private View evening on November 21 at its new Annual Exhibition venue Palace House Mews in Newmarket, at the National Heritage Centre for Horseracing & Sporting Art recently opened by Her Majesty the Queen. Society President, Sir Mark Prescott, Bt. opened the event and introduced outgoing Chair Debbie Burt Hon. SEA who announced the exciting news that an Emerging Artist Bursary is to be established. This will be funded in part by using the money Burt has won in two Dubai International Arabian Races (DIAR) Journalists Awards in 2012 and 2015. Supported by Shadwell Stud and the DIAR Committee, the awards take

place annually with the grand prize including a donation to a charity of the winner's choice. The position of Chairman of the SEA has now been handed to Sheila Bailey, who brings with her a wealth of experience as an effective charity and not-for-profit professional. On behalf of the Society she thanked Debbie Burt for her hard work and the many years she has devoted to the organisation both as both Honorary Secretary and as Chairwoman. www.equestrianartists.co.uk
