For the first time, the Equestrian Federation is sending out a strong signal in the long-delayed animal abuse case of Paul Estermann. The show jumper has hardly let the appeal period of the last judgment pass without making use of it, and the immediate reaction: the board of directors has asked the internal sanctions commission for a temporary ban before the final sanction is imposed.

After Blick revealed the case and the investigations against the show jumper in March 2017, the association hid behind the presumption of innocence for years under the previous leadership and thus avoided responsibility. So they failed to deal with the case in a courageous and proactive manner.
