Letter to the Membership Addressing SafeSport

 

USHJA President Mary Babick wrote a letter to the membership addressing SafeSport:

 

"SafeSport: It can be the topic that divides us or brings us together. Amongst all the discussion and controversy, I believe that we can agree that youth must have a safe environment in which to learn and grow. It is also important to recognize that each member deserves fairness and integrity in all that our sport provides. Horses give riders wings and the opportunity to practice leadership, sportsmanship, empathy, compassion and teamwork."
