The Swedish Sports Confederation is going to look at changing the rules at its congress next year. But change is taking a long time.
People already started criticizing the rules in the '90s, when a riding instructor was convicted of sexually abusing several athletes, including kids under the age of 15, and was sentenced to 2 and a half years in prison.
After, he was able to return to his work. He has maintained that he is innocent.
A new Swedish Radio documentary series called Hästgården was released today. The first episode is available in Swedish here.
