well,by the time i have groomed,picked feet out and tacked-up and faffed about,it`s usually about half an hour and i have never had any problems.

horses in the wild that get spooked and gallop off don`t have a rest 1st to let their dinner go down.

Yup to what everyone else says,
Unless you're going on a super fast hack jumps n all you might want to wait a bit, but a normal hack will be completely fine
