Even though there has already been a rule in place for the last six years regarding the Best Condition award for limited distance, because some ride managers have ignored this rule and not allowed limited distance riders the opportunity to actually show their horse for Best Condition, then it has become necessary to propose a new rule which will close the loophole which has existed.  
This is not exactly correct.  There is no "loophole".  It is the same for 50's and 100's.  Tevis, for example, does not give a BC award according to AERC rules, yet it is one of the most prized rules.  In addition, some ride managers have not ignored this rule, they have complied with the rule as written and chosen not to give BC according to AERC rules.
I fear that changing the rule will simply cause there to be less LD rides....mb
