Fwd: RC: Re:Liberty Run with the kid: Part DONE
Juniors must be with their sponsor at all times. The only time the one
minute rule comes into play is at the finish line, not at any of the vet
A junior must stay with the same sponsor and can only change sponsors at vet
checks with the ride management's consent and knowledge. There are a very
few exceptions to this rule and "wanting to go faster" is not one of them.
They may change on the trail only in an "emergency" where the riders or
horses may not continue safely to a check point.
I'm sorry Howard, but I would have pulled the junior [harsh as that may seem]
and I also would have pulled the sponsor who let them go on. The sponsor
would be pulled regardless but the junior would be pulled only if I was
certain that they just did what they were told and did not understand it was
against the rules, assuming that they should not be held accountable for not
knowing the rules. However, all of my juniors started riding 50's with me at
age 5 the youngest and age 11 the oldest and they knew all of the rules and
made no mistakes that could possibly get them in trouble. I think the big
thing here is that the juniors were not properly prepared to enter a ride.....

officially sponsored by Sandy, but left Sandy on the 2nd loop to
and finish with Barbara instead. Isn't there a rule about
staying with sponsors? Completion times within one minute of
another? Isn't that the whole purpose of sponsorship -- that there
adult responsible for this child, who will be right with this
throughout the ride? How did this happen?
I've been waiting on this
one. Come on Howard, set us straight, please.
