  • What I don't understand is why adults aren't embracing SafeSport's rules as an alibi if false accusations and competitor backhanding are such a concern? While I have no intention of ever coming close to being on SafeSports' bad list, if my livelihood was tied up in the sport, I'd gladly install cameras all over the barn and cc parents on every communication if it would help me avoid a potential wrongful suspension.

        Because it’s not a genuine concern. It’s just an excuse to criticize something they don’t agree with. I also think some people saying that know where the bodies are buried and are concerned with getting caught up in an investigation. Better to keep everyone quiet and act like the horse industry can’t survive without texts to minors and social media.

        • Has anyone noticed under the Ineligibility List on the USEF website, how many members have not taken Safe Sport and yet to quote "SafeSport Training Overdue - allowed on competition grounds" I partially went through the list and just under last names beginning with A there are over 12 pages (20+ to a page)...

          • As a mere bystander, it seems to me that all of this emailing between student with a cc to the parent, the use of permission strips for shows, staying at barn, keeping doors open when with a minor, etc., etc., is one of the very best forms of self-protection a pro could have. The absolute best form is to simply keep one's pants zipped at all times when around students or other barn people.

              Stop signs don’t stop all accidents, and they curtail the travel of law abiding drivers. But we still have them.
