Ride Manager Updates
Reminder: All limited distance ride results must include rider placement and completion time.
Starting rider fees are $5 per rider per distance, plus the $3 per rider drug testing fees (except California rides). Day member fees are $15 per rider per distance.
A checklist has been added to rider packets to make it easier for ride managers to return the forms required by the office to get your ride results published as quickly as possible. Please contact the office if you have any questions: 866-271-2372.
Ride insurance is handled automatically when you ride is sanctioned at no cost to ride management. The office forwards your ride information directly to Equisure, Inc. If you require additional certificates of insurance for your ride, contact Equisure directly at 800-752-2472 or fax to 303-614-6967. A form is included in the Ride Manager Packet for your use in obtaining the required certificates.
Introductory rides of less than 25 miles and educational clinics held in conjunction with AERC-sanctioned rides are covered by AERC's insurance only if noted on your application at the time of sanctioning. To insure coverage of your "intro" ride and/or clinic, a few other rules also apply -- a day member fee of $1 per rider or participant must be collected from individuals who are not current AERC members and participate in the clinic or intro ride, and it is necessary to provide AERC with the names and addresses of those day members. Forward the contact information to the AERC office along with your ride results.
A form entitled "AERC Day Member Contact Information" is included in the Ride Manager Packet for recording the contact data of all day members attending the ride, whether riding a limited distance, endurance, or participating in a clinic or introductory ride.
All AERC-sanctioned rides must use an AERC-approved rider card for the control veterinarian(s) to record the results of their examinations. Two different card samples are included in the Ride Manager Packet -- use the one that works best for your ride.
Post-ride RIDER survey: Please make copies for your riders. Their input will be forwarded on to the Veterinary Committee chair.
AERC ride evaluation sheet: Copies of this form can be supplied to your riders and returned to ride managers to assist in planning future rides. Please do not return them to the AERC office.
Please direct any question to the office, 866-271-2372.
