Normally there will be a steward who will tell you when you can take your horse forward to the vet/competent person. Once you are called forward, take your horse to the vet/competent person and hand your vet sheet to the vet writer who will be standing next to the vet/competent person. The vet/competent person will take your horse’s heart rate, then check the horse over generally. If your horse is wearing a rug, you will be asked to take it off and trot your horse away in a straight line for 30 metres. A cone/flag will mark the end of the 30 metres, walk round the cone and trot back. Try to keep the trot as straight as possible so the vet/competent person can clearly see. Once you have passed the vetting, take the vet sheet and, if there is a farrier at the ride, present your horse to them so they can check their feet. Return to your trailer/box, get your horse tacked up and ready to go, remembering the first aid kit, map, vet sheet, etc.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cem\u003eSetting off \u003c/em\u003e\u003c/strong\u003e– Make your way to the timekeeper – there should be a Start sign very close to them. Hand the vet sheet to them and then wait until they say you can go. They will tell you the exact time of your start, so if you are wearing/using a timing device remember to press the start button! Enjoy the ride. You must cross the start and finish lines mounted, but should you choose to get off en route, you may do so. The routes are marked – details of what materials have been used will be listed in the rider information sent out to you. These will take you to various checkpoints (CPs), which will be shown on your map. Be sure that you call out your number to the Checkpoint stewards, whenever you see them. If there are several horses going through a checkpoint together, wait and make sure that your number has been noted down. Most routes will also have letters (A, B,C etc) showing on the map – these are there to help you navigate round the route and know where you are at any given time. If you get into trouble use the emergency telephone number on your map/talkround to report back to base, try to be precise as possible where you are on the route by saying near which letters/checkpoints you are so that help can be sent out as quickly as possible.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cem\u003eAt the end of the ride \u003c/em\u003e\u003c/strong\u003e– you will come back to the timekeeper as you finish the ride and they will tell you what time you finished – remember to stop your timing device if you are using one! The timekeeper will give you a Finish sheet which records the latest time you can present to the vet - 30 minutes after your actual finish time. Return to your trailer/box, untack, give your horse a drink if they want it, pick out your horse’s feet. Check their heart rate – it needs to be 64 beats per minute or below to pass the vetting. Often your horse will need cooling after the ride. Use water which you have brought with you to apply as much water as is needed to get your horse cool. On cooler days you might not need any water at all, just a cleaning sponge down. It’s always a good idea to take the heart rate first as this will give you an indication of how much cooling might be needed. Once you are happy that the heart rate is as low as you would like it, head over to the vet, taking a rug with you if you think it necessary. The final vetting is just like the first one (the vet sheet will be there waiting for you). The vet/competent person will then tell you whether the horse has passed or not and then you can return to your trailer/box. Make sure the horse is warm enough, give it a feed, clean up. Have your picnic. It usually takes about 30 minutes for the results to be processed but if it is a busy ride then it might be longer. Please be patient, everyone helping is doing the best they can. Remember to return your number bib when you pick up your results. You can then head home – \u003cstrong\u003e\u003cem\u003ewell done\u003c/em\u003e\u003c/strong\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e! \u003c/strong\u003e\u003c/p\u003e","ComponentCode":null,"ComponentData":null,"ComponentError":null,"Background":{"Colour":null,"ImageURL":null,"ImageCrop":null,"Filter":null,"Html":"\u003cdiv class=\"cms-image\"\u003e\u003c/div\u003e"}}],"Height":0,"ColumnSpacing":0,"BottomMargin":0,"IsFullWidth":false,"IsBackgroundFullWidth":false,"Background":{"Colour":null,"ImageURL":null,"ImageCrop":null,"Filter":null,"Html":"\u003cdiv class=\"cms-image\"\u003e\u003c/div\u003e"}}],"PageURL":"https://www.scottishendurance.com/Cms/Spaces/TAH/Ride+Day+Guide?version=3","AllVersions":[{"ID":401,"Name":"v1 - Ride Day Guide - Lindsay Wilson - 30/01/2020 13:50"},{"ID":408,"Name":"v2 - Ride Day Guide - Lindsay Wilson - 30/01/2020 13:54"},{"ID":739,"Name":"v3 - Ride Day Guide - Lindsay Wilson - 29/04/2020 15:43"}],"Comments":[],"UpdatedComments":[],"Spaces":[],"IsWatching":false,"LastViewTime":null,"CanEdit":false,"CanPublish":false,"CanComment":false,"CanReadComments":false,"CanModerateComments":false,"CanLike":false,"CanWatch":false}
