Statement from Tamara L. Tucker, Esq. Re: Dismissal of USEF Protests Against Elizabeth Mandarino

We are pleased that the USEF Hearing Panel has dismissed the protest against Elizabeth Mandarino relating to the death of Ms. Mandarino’s pony “Humble” at the Devon Horse Show. The protest contained allegations that Ms. Mandarino violated various Federation rules and caused the death of “Humble.” These allegations were vigorously denied by Ms. Mandarino, and today the Hearing Panel ruled that the protest was unsubstantiated. In a separate matter, the Hearing Panel also dismissed an additional protest filed against Ms. Mandarino on the grounds that the protest was also unsubstantiated.
