The United States Equestrian Federation recently clarified policies regarding the responsibility of USEF Affiliates in enforcing the Safe Sport Training requirement.
Questions regarding this topic were raised during a Feb. 11 Safe Sport meeting with Affiliate leadership, and the following day, USEF CEO Bill Moroney clarified the policy as follows:
USEF Affiliates are not required to enforce the USEF Safe Sport Training requirement on persons attending non-USEF licensed competitions which are associated in any manner with a USEF Affiliate.
However, USEF Affiliates are required to prohibit any person suspended or banned, including temporary suspensions, appearing on the Safe Sport Sanctions List from participating in any activities of the USEF Affiliate, including participating at Affiliate associated competitions. The Safe Sport Sanctions List is available on the USEF website.
