US Equestrian Updates SafeSport Sanctions List

Authored By: Edited Press Release

US Equestrian updated its SafeSport Sanctions List following the issuance of an interim suspension. 

The interim suspension prohibits participation, in any capacity, in any activity or competition authorized by, organized by, or under the auspices of the United States Olympic Committee, the national governing bodies recognized by the United States Olympic Committee, including US Equestrian, and/or any US Equestrian Affiliated Organization.

The U.S. Center for SafeSport is an independent, national nonprofit organization with exclusive authority under federal law to investigate and resolve allegations of physical, emotional, or sexual abuse and related misconduct associated with the National Governing Bodies recognized by the U.S. Olympic Committee. US Equestrian members and participants agree to abide by its policies and procedures and are thus subject to the disciplinary jurisdiction of the U.S. Center for SafeSport. The Center’s policies and procedures are guided by the SafeSport Code, which can be found at www.safesport.org.
