Updated: USEF Updates SafeSport List To Include Temporary Suspension For Tommy Serio

Jul 13, 2018 - 11:12 AM

The U.S. Equestrian Federation and the U.S. Center For SafeSport have updated the SafeSport suspensions list as of July 12.

There is one addition: professional hunter rider Tommy Serio, Aberdeen, North Carolina. He has been given an interim suspension after allegations of misconduct. An interim suspension is a temporary suspension generally granted while the Center conducts an investigation.

On July 12 the USEF added two new names to the SafeSport suspension list on their website and sent a press release to members the next day informing them of the two additions. But the second name has now been removed as that individual is a minor.

The USEF website has a SafeSport section listing all individuals who have been sanctioned for violating the code. There are several types of suspensions: suspensions with a set end date, expulsion (which kicks members out but allows individuals to reapply for re-instatement after a set period of time), and permanent ineligibility. It also lists interim suspensions, in which certain individuals being investigated by SafeSport investigators may not compete until the end of the investigation.

You can see the full list on the USEF website.
