USEF CEO John Long "Clarifies" Copenhagen Statement

John Long, CEO of the US federation, has finally "clarified" his truly confounding statement made in the Clean Sport panel discussion in Copenhagen. Speaking of the now-infamous "progressive list," Mr. Long said, "There is no way we ever would have proposed or supported something like that; there are just not enough drugs allowed and the levels are way too low. So once again, I repeat: This proposal did not come from the United States Equestrian Federation, it is not our official position, and we do not support it." Media then asked Mr. Long how the USA delegation voted on the deficient proposal, but he declined to respond.

Mr. Long won the FEI's prestigious Most Obvious Bullshit award for this world-class performance.
