“We have a group of young athletes who certainly have problems,” said Swanke Lauterbach, secretary-general of the German Equestrians Federation. “We want and will not allow this to turn into a phenomenon.”

He stressed that the German Equestrian Federation is making strenuous efforts to combat the spread of alcoholism among young horsemen and the prevalence of sexual assault.
