[RC] VMAX Heartbelt - Angie Fura

I just ordered and received a VMAX heartbelt.  This is the style of HRM that uses a belt to hold the transmitter against the horse's side.  I purchased this so I didn't have to carry a separate handheld transmitter in VC's when riding cavalry.  (At Longtstreet's, I only had saddle-based electrodes so I was "blind" as soon as I untacked). 
The instructions say that its not to be used under saddle.  I didn't realize that when I bought it.  Does anyone use one under saddle?  Or is the norm to just strap it on once you've untacked?
