Re: [RC] Pulse in system - no PR box - Truman Prevatt

I have to say I much prefer have a pulse box. It gives you more flexibility to stop your clock, then pull tack, feed/water, whatever.

The pulse box solves a lot of problems. One big one is if more people enter than pulse takers, the timer stops your time when you enter. If you are down - you get that time. This can be a big deal if people are racing.

There are normally a lot more people that can record a pulse than there are vets at a ride - that keeps the lines down and it also allows you to give the same times to all that enter the box since normally it's only a few seconds till a pulse taker can get to your horse.

It also gives people a little more options if they want to get pulsed in - then drop their saddle before going to the vet or to come back to the vet later.

Today with the use of hand helds most people can serve as pulse takers. If you have one or two people with stethoscopes for the difficult horses you are good to go.

FEI rides might have a sufficient number of vets for the vet to take the initial pulse without impact, however, I expect those rides that do are an exception to the rule.
