FEI – RCP CD 960.6 Remove last 300m rules 18-046

RC#: 18-046
Rule/Article: CD 960.6
Change Type: Modify
Proponent: Combined Driving Committee
Status: CDC-recommended FEI change proposals (posted 29July17). Subject to FEI approving changes and final wording.

Revised Wording:

960.6 Paces

Delete 6.1 & 6.2:

6.1 The finish of Section B must not be more than 300 m from the exit of the last Obstacle unless the Technical Delegate grants an exception. If the last obstacle is situated within 300 m of the finish, Athletes may stop within 30m of the out gate of the obstacle to repair a broken or detached harness without penalty. A 30m marker will be placed on the track to indicate this point if the last obstacle is within 300 m of the finish.

6.2 Between last obstacle (or 300m) and finish, pace must be trot or walk only. The Athlete will accumulate one penalty point for each five seconds the turnout is not at the walk or trot.

Keep:

6.1 Walk Section. At ADS-recognized events, gates, sharp turns, water and steep hills should not be included in the walk section.

Reason for Change: Paragraphs 1 and 2 become redundant with implementation of Last Transfer section.

    RCP not needed if we stop blindly following the ridiculousness of the newest FEI proposed “last transfer”.

    The language and proposal will have additional review. There is no blind following when the CDC’s proposal has an ADS option written into it. Inclusiveness of the ADS at “bigger” CDEs is the goal of the committee. Decisions by the CDC are made with the ADS member best interest in mind.
