The U.S. Center for SafeSport has notified US Equestrian of updates to its Disciplinary Records following the issuance of a Temporary Suspension to Tommy Serio and Neil Donnelly, Jr., based on allegations of misconduct. In addition, Robert Bielefeld is no longer under a Temporary Suspension, as his suspension was lifted by an arbitrator following an interim measures hearing.
Any person under a Temporary Suspension is prohibited from participating, in any capacity, in any activity or competition authorized by, organized by, or under the auspices of the United States Olympic Committee, US Equestrian, and any US Equestrian affiliated organization. Frequently asked questions regarding temporary suspensions are available here.
US Equestrian wants every athlete, parent, coach, support staff, and trainer to know: if you are a victim of abuse or suspect abuse of any kind, there are resources and people to help. The U.S. Center for SafeSport and US Equestrian are working together to provide education and resources to ensure young people and the adults who support them are empowered to speak up and create the safe, respectful environment all athletes deserve. Please visit US Equestrian’s Safe Sport page for these resources and more information about US Equestrian’s Safe Sport initiative.
