[RC] Re:Curious - Michael Maul

In response to:"So you could get a completion within 15 minutes, then have your horse treated 15 min. later and the completion stands."

Your horse could be treated immediately after a completion and the completion stands. If an accident happened immediately after your horse completed the final vet check - for example - kicked by another horse - treating the horse would be the right thing to do and certainly has nothing to do with the horse completing the ride.

A more important reason for the rule is that if there were a time limit in which a completion could be removed for veterinary reasons - some riders might delay treatment until after this time to get the completion.

This would be contrary to our interest in making sure that the sport is safe for our horses. Delaying treatment could cause a problem that is not treated as early as possible to develop into a major problem later.
