    Am happy for grooms not to give verbal direction. Think a groom not being able to help keep the carriage stable, while running a hazard is not a good idea.
    Or, are you going to ask folks to trot only in hazards at ADT’s?

      This RCS only applies to the Cones competition. This is just to clarify what is already a requirement.
