  • USEF In The Mail, Safe Sport

    I got this in my email and when I first read it I thought "Wow, we're getting serious on making equestrian sports safer" thinking like in Eventing, dropping damn tables from courses or stop hiring CMP as course designer for example, but when I got to the bottom I realized this was a different kind of safe.

    Really sad that even in this Horse world, there are people who prey on others for their own sick needs. I am glad there will be on demand videos to help promote the issue aftewards. The line in bold tells it all.

    Anyway, passing it on if anyone is in that area.

    US Equestrian Safe Sport Town Hall and Campaign Launch at USEF Pony Finals Presented by Collecting Gaits Farm From the US Equestrian Communications Department

    Lexington, Ky.USEF Network.

    Additionally, US Equestrian will officially kick off its new Safe Sport awareness
    campaign, #YouAreNotAlone, during Pony Finals. The campaign will feature posters at competitions, advertisements in prize lists, town hall meetings, new Learning Center videos, outreach on social media, and content on and US Equestrian also has debuted a new section in its digital newsletter, Equestrian Weekly, dedicated to Safe Sport news, updates, and information for members and non-members alike.
    Look for more information on US Equestrian's #YouAreNotAlone campaign in the coming weeks.

    The town hall, led by US Equestrian CEO Bill Moroney and US Equestrian General Counsel Sonja Keating, will focus on the U.S. Center for SafeSport, federal law and reporting requirements, the role of US Equestrian in the Safe Sport movement, and the educational, support, and reporting resources available to our members.

    "US Equestrian is committed to creating and maintaining an equestrian community where all persons who participate in the sport can do so in an atmosphere that is free of emotional, physical, and sexual misconduct," said Moroney. "Abuse of any kind has no place in our sport or any sport. We feel that it is important for us to communicate with our members, keep them informed, provide resources, answer questions, and educate them on the importance of the Safe Sport Policy. Engaging parents is critical to keeping children safe and this national championship provides an opportunity for US Equestrian to interact directly with parents and their children."

    Additional resources include the U.S. Center for SafeSport, US Equestrian Safe Sport webpage, the Safe Sport Policy, the Safe Sport Q&A, and the Safe Sport Sanctions List.
