Re: [RC] GIT-R-DONE II - pulse in system - John Teeter

At the Owyhee rides, we have the vet's actually verify the pulse is within criteria (i.e. there are no pulse takers) the time at which the horse/rider passes into the pulse gate is recorded and they progress directly to the vet where the pulse is taken. If criteria is not met, the horse/rider cycle back out into the cooling area. If the pulse is down, the trot is then (generally) requested to start the CRI process.? The removal of the seperate pulse taking step seemed to work well for all involved.

?? Your pulse box worked great.? My only complaint about it is that it was not very convienient to have to unsaddle away from the crew area.? It seemed the flow was disrupted.? I know you were short on volunteers, but it was very difficult to unsaddle when?you couldn't tie your horse to the rail of fence (I remember there were signs on that rail at the November ride not to tie to the fecnce) or have volunteers to help hold horses.? This probably would not have been a big deal if I only had to do this once but having to unsaddle twice for the 75?(and three times for the 100) made this difficult without crew.
?? Also, I don't know if this would be possible but it would be nice to be able to pulse in with the saddle on and then be able to see the vet after unsaddling.? To me, it didn't look like this was a possibility with the way the box was set up.? It looked like you had to see the vet immediately after pulsing.?
