Do USEF/USHJA members realize Safe Sport is a LAW enacted by US Congress?

    Of course this led me to look up George H Morris and his USEF number is 312. And he's been a life member since 1973..he got his money's worth.

    And there is zero percent chance he even paid for his own membership

    But hell, I'm all for giving these people a refund and banning them all.

    Let me apologize in advance.

I don't know him, I haven't ridden with him, but seriously, I'd expect a professional at his level to have a basic understanding of the sport's governing bodies.

      Assuming this is him: 5741 TRAURIG, BERNIE H Current: INACTIVE - Amateur , he obviously isn't competing, since he isn't an amateur, given his teaching.
      Hasn’t he been teaching and giving clinics all along? If so, it seems like he should be listed as a professional whether or not he’s actually competing these days. Or did he sit out for a year and get his amateur card for some reason?

      Not to mention the fact that I believe he’s won at the top of three different disciplines, although technically that has no bearing on amateur status.

        I question whether he was a member before he rescinded his membership, given that he hasn’t competed for years.

        As as far as the amateur status there was a time, years ago, when several pros listed themselves as amateurs for Olympics eligibility. Don’t think any of them ever tried to show in a USEF Amateur division.

        Sorry about not doing the multiquote thing, but I’m not about to try in a day when I can’t keep names straight.

          Maybe.

          But according to the bio on his website, he was serving on the USEF high performance show jumping committee not too long ago, plus he judged the Maclay final in 2017, so I would think he would need to be a member for either task.

          And he was still showing in 2008, according to the USEF online results, and I believe everyone had to be declared a professional or an amateur under the current rules by that time.

          Obviously it’s a sidetrack from the main topic of discussion. It just seems odd.

            Then I guess I will thank the Republicans. lol

            Clearly our sport (and others) needs Safe Sport. I hope they continue to improve the process.

                Yes, SafeSport is necessary. I'd guess it came about due more to the abuse of young gymnasts by Dr. Nasser than anything else. Young or vulnerable athletes (Special Olympics, PARA) deserve protection from sexual predators. No sport is immune from sexual predators. SafeSport points out how to spot the abuse and signs of "grooming" by persons in positions of authority.

                  I was up for my Safe Sport Refresher training, I was worried it was going to be all 3 segments again. It was only about 20 minutes.

                    Has anyone seen the Safe Sport online course for juniors yet? For the different age groups? Just curious how that looks.
