Re: [RC] HRM's and loose girths - Elaine Delbeke

I also ride with a loose girth and so do a number of my  friends.  What
I do is put one electrode under the saddle pad on the left at about 10
o'clock, and the other (long lead)on the right under the saddle pad as
near to the cinch attachment as possible.  This works well at a walk and
standing and at a gentle canter.  Since you are depending on your weight
on the saddle to maintain contact, at a trot you get some erroneous
readings, I presume from saddle bounce.  It works well for waking in and
pulsing down.  Readings no so reliable trotting. Have seen some with
equalizer or similar saddle pads run electrode wires inside the pad,
with exit point at desired electrode position, and monitor sender unit
also inside the pad at the front of the saddle.  That way the whole unit
can be stripped off at vet checks and it all stays together with no
rewiring required, and no exposed wires to get caught on anything. Easy
to put bakc on.
