Re: [RC] 30 minute rule - rides2far

Any comments other than my own regarding Diane's suggestion that the 
HR be down within 30 min. however the horse has 60 min. from 
completion to vet through?   Seems like it could accomplish what 
both individual rules do not!  

Vet checks are run very differently in the SE than in the West from what
I've seen. They seem to come in and head for a water tank and pulse
takers kinda wander around and offer to take their pulse. They could get
their pulse and have it on their card without ever leaving their crewing
area, but couldn't get their time till a pulsetaker was available. Then
the vet was down the hill a ways and they went down when they were ready.

At a SE ride you walk into a roped off area, past an in-timer and call
out your number. They write it down the second you cross the line into
the pulse area. The next available pulsetaker takes your pulse and if
it's down they record the time *that you walked past the in-timer*
(doesn't matter of you had to wait 4 min. for a pulsetaker). At that time
you exit directly into the vet check area. There is not an exit to go
back to your crew area and do whatever for another 30 min.
