USA Equestrian Releases Call to End Challenge
USA Equestrian (formerly AHSA) issued a statement today by its president, Alan F. Balch, addressed to his fellow USET trustees in the wake of the finding by New Jersey Superior Court that the USET's corporate actions this year are "null and void."
Balch appeals for an end to the USET's expensive and divisive challenge, and a return to the historic cooperative relationship between the two organizations which has successfully governed the sport for 50 years.
The statement is available at
