[RC] re: 'hazing to trot' and our Rules - Teresa Van Hove
OK - I've always wondered whether it was strictly legal under the
existing AERC rules to have someone haze the horse at the vet checks?
I'm referring to rule 6.0, section K - see below. Bob Morris, I'd love
to read your slant on this.
I guess under this rule being paced or prompted would be ok if done by
another entrant, or perhaps its considered part of ordinary support
services? But I think it should have to be another entrant - this would
really add a neat little wrinkle to a tight race <VEG>
k. Not having been paced, prompted or aided by an unentered, withdrawn,
or otherwise unauthorized equine, vehicle, or a person other than
another entrant. This does not preclude the ordinary support services
of attendants or pit crews. A crew may accompany their rider down a
public road in a support vehicle (unless there is a ride management
prohibition against it) provided they do not push or haze the equine.
