[RC] fit to continue - Buddy Gleason

Then, the 30 minute vet check vs the 60 minute vet check is at the finish line..60 at the finish line. Where the final vet check id held.  The finish line being wherever  it is established by RM.. The horse and rider can relax and rest the extra 30 minutes to camp to the final vet check. But at the end of the 50 miler the horse is deemed fit to continue after a 60 minute time period has passed.. Not 30 minutes at vet checks along the trail through out the days ride.  The horse must meet vet parameters by the end of 30 minutes or be deemed not fit to continue...to the finish line.. So.. why make a difference for fit to continue criteria at the finish line... When, it has been 30 minutes throughout the ride...Buddy
