      Yes, he is on the Safe Sport list, but USEF has not updated its records yet. He has also put out a statement denying all accusations and stating that he will fight it.

        He is not on the USEF Safe Sport list on the website.

        Where are you seeing his statement?

          "I am deeply troubled by the U.S. Center for SafeSport's findings regarding unsubstantiated charges for events that allegedly occurred between 1968 & 1972. I contest these findings wholeheartedly and am in the process of disputing them. I have devoted my life to equestrian sport and the development of future riders, coaches and Olympians. Any allegations that suggest I have acted in ways that are harmful to any individual, the broader equestrian community, and sport that I love dearly are false and hurtful. I share our community's commitment to protecting the safety and wellbeing of all our athletes who need reliable guidance and encouragement at every level, of which I have provided for over 50 years. I will continue, as I always have, to proudly support equestrianism and its continued development around the world."

              Huhh?? He’s permanently banned? What is even going on? This is the first I’m hearing of any accusations against him.

              edit: so the SS site is confusing. They have him listed as permanently banned but it’s also written as “subject to appeal” because they’re allegations? So what does that mean, have they investigated or have they not? Did the complaint just come in today?

                  Fiona_785 I take it to mean that they have investigated enough to find the complaints credible and therefore have banned GM from participating in USEF activities while the investigations continue and the appeals process plays out.

                    wow. It’s been a running whisper that he’d get added after he died. I’m shocked but not.

                        Wow! So here’s my question, some people end up on the temporary list pending investigation. Why wasn’t he? Maybe I missed it?

                          Decades of whispers of 'bad behavior'.

                            And if you don’t think there are bad whispers, which there are.. and they aren’t even whispers much anymore versus “compartmentalized jokes” as a way of dealing - read his book. It says plenty. Even if the “times were different”.

                              I wasn’t aware of this other than his “interesting” method of teaching at times. Have there really been accusations of inappropriate behavior with him? I have to admit I am relatively new to this discipline.

                                I am certainly out of the loop then. Which book do you mean? I’ve only ever read his “Hunt Seat Eq” book.

                                  George's book Unrelenting is quite interesting. There are quiet references in it.
