e-mail from George Morris

Where do you suppose the e-mail list came from that his statement came from? I'm just curious why I would have received it. I'm not a current USEF member... I don't think. I may have been 20 something years ago when I rode dressage and did combined training events?


Just curious how they got the mass e-mail list....

I don’t know. I haven’t had one.

Just winging it is not a plan

Some company you do business with sold yours and other customers email addresses to a marketing firm...
Mass email sent to horse enthusiasts...
Marketing, advertising ploy and a infomercial for many products endorsed by a name like Georges'...
He gets royalties and is a paid spokesman for many products = $$ in his pocket.

...

The worst day is instantly better when shared with my horse.....

I was wondering if they got it from a horse expo? I can't imagine the breed registries or something like Smartpak would sell it?

Here is the e-mail:


A Statement From George H. Morris

I am deeply troubled by the U.S. Center for SafeSport's findings regarding unsubstantiated charges for events that allegedly occurred between 1968 & 1972. I contest these findings wholeheartedly and am in the process of disputing them. I have devoted my life to equestrian sport and the development of future riders, coaches and Olympians. Any allegations that suggest I have acted in ways that are harmful to any individual, the broader equestrian community, and sport that I love dearly are false and hurtful.

I share our community's commitment to protecting the safety and wellbeing of all our athletes who need reliable guidance and encouragement at every level, of which I have provided for over 50 years. I will continue, as I always have, to proudly support equestrianism and its continued development around the world.

Sounds like someone found their 'nads after 50 some odd years of feeling resentment. Funny, I competed in the same ring, same barns as GM and his students. I heard a lot of stuff about a lot of people but never him.

I have no idea if it's true or not. 50 years does seem like a long time to wait...

But then again - with the new movement....

Yeah I'm not gonna start on the "new movement" and what I think about people who stay shut for 20+ years and then want to dogpile on someone. My thoughts and feelings aren't PC so I'll just keep them to myself.

I think we are on the same page. I don't like to judge anyone without facts. And by anyone, I do mean either side. I just... I don't know... if there is someone doing bad things to children out there and you know it... then well.... I don't know... Moral obligations and stuff....

This “Safe Sport” Company SMACKS of a way to make mega bucks capitalizing on people’s fears. They have ZERO evidence of any wrong doing, and are ruining many people’s lives with heresay.

I was googling it last night and couldn't find anywhere that he has been charged with anything. I see allegations and I see the ban but I don't see charges or evidence or conviction...

I'm not defending the guy and I'm not-not defending the guy but the articles are vague.
