ASHA's Response to USA Today Article

Today, USA Today published an article (full article available here) about the equestrian community's response to the Safe Sport Act and enforcement efforts by the U.S. Center for SafeSport. The American Saddlebred industry was referenced many times in this article. The American Saddlebred Horse Association’s position on the Safe Sport policy is as expressed by ASHA President David Mount, “We strongly support what the Safe Sport Act represents for the protection of our young members.  We also firmly believe the enforcement of this law through the U.S. Center for SafeSport can be significantly improved to better protect youth while also providing fair processes to our members.”  ASHA's mission is to promote the American Saddlebred horse, and a key part of that is to help ensure a safe, enjoyable environment in which to own and exhibit our beloved breed.
