The U.S. Hunter Jumper Association has partnered with We Ride Together, Inc., a nonprofit organization created early in 2021 to shine a light on the endemic issue of sexual abuse in youth sports, starting with equestrian sport and then broadening to every sport. Its mission is to make the youth and amateur sports environment safer for all athletes.
“There’s a common thread when it comes to abuse,” said Mary Knowlton, USHJA president. “Sadly, it affects each of us through family, friends and colleagues. Our partnership with We Ride Together allows us to show support while also helping to raise awareness.
