The SEA aims to promote the practice of equestrian painting and sculpture and the public appreciation of this art. It runs workshops and lectures around the country, led by Full Members and invited experts. There is now an emphasis on encouraging young artists with a range of new initiatives.

Membership of the Society is open to anyone. Friend Members who are artists may apply to be considered for promotion to Associate Members (ASEA), who in turn may become Full Members (SEA) by exhibiting their work with the Society over a number of years. There are around 450 members, many of whom are based overseas.

The Society was set up in 1979 by ten founder members under the Chairmanship of Norman Hoad, a notable equestrian and aviation artist. Find out more >>
