RE: [RC] Pull Codes - heidi

So although this could be classified RO-M or RO-L...I
would think it was really an RO (again, IMHO) based on
the fact that we were cleared to continue had I wanted

Well, that is why the RO part is added to RO-L and RO-M.  The horse is
cleared, but YOU opt not to continue.  However, in your example, there
is clearly an issue with the horse.  That is what the RO-L and RO-M
codes are trying to identify.  I like Kat's designation of W if there
is a non-horse-related reason why the rider pulls.  That would remove
the confusion, I think.  Then if you opt not to continue because of a
horse-related issue, it is more clear that you need to decide if it is
an RO-L or an RO-M.

Depending on the trail and the conditions, yes, yours could have been
either one.  A good ride vet should be able to help you make a
reasonable decision as to which it is.
