minutes to reach criteria...whereas the rest of the ride he get 30
minutes....If 30 minutes is considered a critical parameter during the
ride...Isn't it just as critical at the end of a ride???  If my horses pulse
wasn't down in 30 minutes at the end of a ride...I would assume something
was wrong...Obviously not "fit to continue". Anyone know why the
