Rolex Alleged Abuse Case Hearing Scheduled for June 25

The Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI), the international governing body for equestrian sport, announced Friday (June 1) that U.S. eventing rider Amy Tryon has requested a hearing regarding an incident of alleged abuse that occurred on April 28 at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event in Lexington. The hearing will be held on June 25 in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Le Samurai, a 12-year-old bay Holsteiner/Thoroughbred gelding piloted by Tryon, sustained a serious injury near the end of the cross country course. The horse was euthanatized a few days later when veterinarians deemed a successful treatment outcome was not possible.
