Though I basically agree with you, it would also be wrong to work the rules 
of the sport more to their favor with lower pulse criterion, would it not?  
As stated before, 72 worked as criterion for quite a long time.  Other breed 
riders only seem to want the rules to not be altered to FAVOR the Arabs.  I 
do not believe that a horse with a slightly higher pulse rate than the 
average Arab is, by virtue of that fact alone, less suitable.
