Article 965 Obstacle Penalties
965.3.2 Once Grooms have dismounted they are not required to get back onto the carriage and need not follow the Athlete through any of the Compulsory Gates in the rest of the obstacle. Grooms do not have to be on the Carriage when it leaves the obstacle. They must get back on the carriage immediately (between the finish line of each obstacle and the 30 meter sign) outside of the obstacle [add: (last obstacle excluded)] (last obstacle excluded). Failure to do so will incur five penalties per incident.
Reason for Change: clarify 30m sign not required following last obstacle.
