RE: [RC] Racing and LD BC - heidi

What vets?  Could you please name at least two vets in at least two regions 
that have 
refused to give ANY Best Condition award to LD horses.  I know that there 
are plenty 
of vets in the West and Pacific Southwest who give BC awards without using 
the AERC 
BC form because of its inclusion of placing and speed, but that's not the 
same as 
saying they are not willing to use these awards at all.

Some have been previously mentioned in this forum.  Since I don't work
with them, I can't remember which ones they were--but hopefully those
who have ridden there and have provided that information in the past
will do so again.

I meant to add to this that I think the "no BC at all" is more common in
the W than in the PS.  I've vetted in the PS, where RMs have offered
something other than the AERC BC, and I gathered that it was not
unusual there to do something like that.  But in the past, we've heard
from RMs in the W who have made comments to the effect that their vets
refuse to judge any sort of LD BC at all because it takes too much of
their time--even in the face of requests from those RMs to do SOME kind
of a BC.  This was thoroughly aired one of the earlier times that LD BC
came around on RC.
