Re: [RC] [RC] RM question - Nancy Mitts
I is my understanding that the BC scoring is done on the BC sheet from the
examination of the horse done 1 hour post ride. Most vets now also do a CRI
at 10-15 minutes post ride for BC purposes. I have had head vets who did not
even want the rider & horses name on the BC sheet, or their ride time, only
their number. (Of course, in a small group they would in reality know those
things anyway.) So, the ride card should not be needed for filling out BC
As to wrong/incomplete/illegible info on entry forms--it is always a
problem. The only solution I know is to take the time to check everything is
there before they leave the entry table. If someone threw me a form & walked
off I'd be tempted to say they weren't properly entered...

We had ziplocs available though I am not sure my daughter remembered to
offer them to everyone. The rider who was the worst offender is a long
time, well experienced rider and her card was soooooo bad, it had pieces
missing. She knows better. You couldn't read the CRI's or vet's scores
from the checks. He had to try and recall. Maybe I place too much
importance on a vet card and maybe those scores are really only important
when it comes down to BC judging. One gal simply LOST her card. Of
course, we had all the in times, pulse down times, etc. but we don't keep
records at the checks of CRI's or vet scores on gut, etc. Should we?
Maybe the CRI scores? That can really make a major difference in BC
scoring on recovery where one point becomes ten. Anyway, I am still
testing the waters and finding out what my responsiblities are, what
decisions I am expected to make and just how much authority I do or do not
have. I'm sure in another ten years (if I make it that far!), I'll be much
more confident and knowledgeable about the whole thing. Maybe in ten
years. :) LOL Thanks to EVERYONE for their helpful comments and advice!
