[RC] Hold times - Rides 2 Far

an hour isn't enough at the halfway point, at least.  Typical >pattern
=> that I> like (barring unusual weather circumstances or unusual
obstacles at => checks)
is 15 at the first check, 45 at the halfway, and then anywhere from 15
=> to 30> at the 3rd check, depending on circumstances. 

I wonder is weather would come to play in our attitudes here. In the
Southeast the vets generally want us to pull tack at every vet check. The
horse just cools off better.  If you've got a 15 min. check where you've
got to re-tack that horse isn't going to get much "down time" with people
letting him relax.
