2018 – 2019 Robert Killen Chairman’s Award
In 2018 Equestrian Art International (EAI) became sponsor of this award. EAI Owner John Thorley joined us to spring a surprise on our winner Luke Harvey, and presented him with a sensational oil painting commissioned from leading equestrian artist Vineta Sayer.
Explaining his reasons for choosing Luke, Robert said “Luke is a thoroughly good bloke who supports the PPORA, can always be relied upon to help out and never misses a chance to promote Point to Pointing to a wider audience” – Luke for once was lost for words!
