    I like the intent of this rule but I don;t think it is correctly written. “turnouts requiring just one groom”…required by what existing rule? Why not write it this way: “Two grooms are required for four-in-hands or unicorns to assist in the event of difficulty, Exception: VSE and Small pony turnouts may use only one groom.”
