RE: [RC] Ruffled Feathers---Good Responses - Margie Burton

Hi Rae,
I must admit to not having done many rides in Texas (just the Frigid Digit which did have a full check at the end of the 50) but I know [most of] the rides in Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma have full checks.  I think I've ridden all but two (not Winding Stair or Bell Cow) , most many times and have truly never seen any vet do a trot out for completion.  In fact, just those words puts our Vet Chair, Dr. Jim Baldwin of Oklahoma, in an uproar.  I put on the Christmas in Kansas Ride for six years and our vets did a full exam for all distances.  I'm really surprised to hear you say the rides in Central don't do this as a matter of course.
 
I've always been so impressed with the vetting in our part of the "world" - can you be more specific about the rides?  And if this is happening, you should talk to the ride manager or think about a protest.  Our rules require a full vet exam and you have every right to be upset about this.  I am going to forward your RC messages to Vonita Bowers, our other Central Director.
 
Thanks for  the input.
Margie Burton
Central Director

Well, I've been riding in this sport since 1999 and with the exception of the few times I've top tenned, my horse has never had a full check at the end of the ride - just a trot out.

Please be aware of the following AERC Rule:
 
2.1.4 Each equine will receive a substantive physical examination of metabolic and mechanical parameters before the ride, at control points within the ride and after the ride.
 
There is no excuse for the lack of a post ride examination and the exclusion of such is in contravention of the Rules and Regulations

Ok, then it's just not having a final vet exam that I don't like.  I think if you're going to do a full vet check at the beginning and at the holds, then there needs to be one at the end as well.

It's the same for 50s...and I've done both LD and 50s.
