    Well be careful what you "know."  Things get dangerous when minds are closed 
    and learning stops.  :o)

    Congratulations on your 21 years...that's incredible.  But many with equal 
    experience are big believers in the HRM as a great, if not invaluable tool.  
    I don't believe ANYONE has suggested using the HRM as a Tach and ignoring 
    their horse.  That straw man is easy to shoot down.  Learning to read the 
    horse is all important.  A good HRM can help you learn to do so.
