The United States Equestrian Federation, Inc. (the “Federation”) is the National Governing Body of equestrian sport, and as such is tasked with ensuring fairness, safety, and integrity in equestrian sport. Fairness and integrity are fundamental to the enjoyment of sport and competition. Any attempts at or manipulation of the fairness and integrity of sport threaten the overall enjoyment of the sport. This Prevention of the Manipulation of Competition Policy has been created to ensure the protection of fairness and integrity in all levels of equestrian sport.
Please find the whole policy here.
Are there betting restrictions on Prixview games?
- “Sports Betting, Bet, or Betting” means any wager of a stake of monetary value in the expectation of a cash prize or other prize of monetary value, subject to a future and uncertain occurrence related to a Competition. Cash and prizes of de minimus value are permitted. Prixview games are FREE TO PLAY. They do not qualify as betting.
- Age Restrictions: account holders must be 18 or older to enter Prixview games.
What else is considered as a corruption offense?
Connected persons are not permitted to solicit, offer, induce, instruct, persuade, encourage and/or facilitate the giving and/or receiving of benefit (which may be money or something else) in relation to a Jumping event improperly and/or in circumstances in which the connected person knows or should be expected to know may bring the person or the Game into disrepute or pose a threat to the integrity of the Game.
This would cover, for example, accepting gifts from match fixers as part of the "grooming" process or introducing a player, for example, to a match fixer in exchange for money.
Connected persons are also not permitted to tamper with, obstruct, delay and/or destroy any evidence or potential evidence, documentation or information which may be relevant to a breach, potential breach or investigation.
What qualifies as “misinformation” or “inside information”?
Depending on your role in the Sport, you may have access to different types of Inside Information:
Athletes, trainers and support staff
If you are an athlete, coach, vet, doctor/physiotherapist, analyst or someone else involved with a team, the Inside Information you acquire could be far-reaching:
- It is illegal for athletes, coaches & support staff to sell and/or license confidential medical information, biometric data, or any non-public data used to evaluate athlete and/or horse performance.
- Athletes, coaches & support staff are not allowed to sell and/or license any public or non-public information related to their training or horse care programs.
- The use of social media and the associated risks of participants releasing information through these channels is high. Athletes should be mindful of the use of these channels when sharing video and photo footage of their programs.
People involved in sport administration
If you are an administrator or volunteer in a Union, Association or Club, for example, the Inside Information you have could include: coaching appointments, fixture scheduling information, team selections, officials appointments, competition management, in-gate management, footing conditions, jump setting, citings and suspensions, etc. until such information becomes public knowledge.
People associated with others involved in the sport
If you are a family member, friend or associate of any of the above people you could also become privy to this Inside Information through your connection to that person. Having Inside Information is inevitable as part of every role in the Game and does not breach the Regulations in itself. It is how you treat that information that is important.
