Suggested Wording

Athletes must not deviate from the track for the last 300 meters or between the last Obstacle from the trot or walk only marker (located outside the exit gate of the last obstacle) and the finish of section B. Athletes who stop, circle, zig-zag or leave the track in any other way will incur 10 penalties for each occurrence.

(See articles 960 6.1 and 960 6.2)

Reason for change

Current wording does not address the 30 m marker.

    While I can agree with the intend and clearer wording of the suggestion, I believe we really should not make any changes to any of the FEI text. Accordingly such changes would need to be proposed to the FEI and come from them if they agree. We should only make ADS amendments where absolutely necessary. I don’t see this as one that would fall into that need.
