I'll be working as a vet recorder at the USA East Benefit Ride on May 2nd.
Since this is all new to me, I'd like advice...

The best thing you can do to prepare beforehand is learn your vet's system 
and familiarize yourself with the paperwork you'll be using.  During the 
vetting, stick right by your vet and don't let distractions take your 
attention while he/she is mumbling <vbg> letters and numbers to you.  If it 
rains hard, all paper will turn to pulp, so a grease pencil and plastic 
board set might come in handier.  Make sure you get all your personal needs 
taken care of before the horses start coming in and be ready and packed to 
run to the next check at the drop of a hat.  Speaking of hats, don't forget 
to wear one and carry sunblock and water at all times <desert experience 
speaking here>.  On the flip side, also be ready to stay to the very last 
minute sitting with your vet out there in some remote corner of the trail 
waiting for Trilb... er, that very last person to come by.  You and your 
vet will become the best of friends or the worst of enemies by the time 
it's all said and done.  Heehee!
