[RC] Rest rule, was Re : Analysis of pull trends - Deanna German

Well, when a rider is eliminated twice for metabolic on a CEI ride (120kms and
over), he has to re-qualify by completing two 90kms rides.

For the horse, after 3 consecutive pulls any reason, he must go 'on rest' for ,
not sure, 6 months.

This slid in under the radar. I like this idea!! This is pretty darned
objective and doesn't shine the light only on newbies. The only problem I
see is you get into that whole vet favoritism thing we talked about not too
long ago.

I think it should be the same rider on any horse though, as well as focusing
on the horse. And maybe not consecutive pulls, rider or horse, but maybe X
number in a 6 month or year span.

Something to chew on that's for sure, particularly since it seems to be
working elsewhere.
