Re: [RC] okay, another question - Truman Prevatt

Title: "There is always a well-known solution to every human problem--neat, plausible, and wrong

No public land manger I have ever talked to will give the AERC exclusive rights to the trials and if the base camp is public the base camp. Most cannot do that unless the entire facility is a for fee use and it is rented. So as long as a rider is not in violation of the land management rules the AERC has no say in the issue of where or when they ride. The only authority the RM has is over riders in the ride and then only to the extent that pertains to AERC business.

Being on public land may give a DQ'd rider the right to ride on those lands at other times, but it does not give the DQ's rider the right to ride along with AERC entered riders on the same trails being used on that day for an AERC ride.  Item k. certainly clarifies the rules.

Yes, there is a rule against that:
L6. Completion requires meeting all of the following criteria:
k. Not having been paced or prompted by an un-entered, withdrawn, or otherwise unauthorized equine, vehicle or person other than another entrant.
Now, if the ride were on public land, the unentered person could make an argument that they were simply a member of the general public out riding [and that argument may or may not fly with ride management]. However, Eagle Ranch is private land. The entrant[s] should not have been given completions if DQ'ed or unentered riders rode with them.
