For years, the legal back and forth about the animal cruelty allegations against the show jumper Paul Estermann (59) cast a shadow over equestrian sport, now the inglorious case is about to be concluded. After the guilty verdict by the cantonal court in December, the former Olympic rider from Lucerne let the appeal period expire, according to the Swiss Equestrian Federation.

The association, under the new leadership of President Damian Müller, reacted and immediately applied to the internal sanctions commission for a temporary ban. A first strong sign of the SVPS. A decision on a temporary ban is expected in the next few weeks. Especially since the association insists on urgent processing. It could take until spring before the procedure is completed with a sanction. Then it should be a multi-year ban for Estermann.
