[RC] New incentive to enter 100's/HR jump - sherman

I’m curious about the jump in HR Lysane. Were you climbing at a fast pace? The reason I ask is that whenever my HR monitor showed a sudden jump in BPM it was NEVER a true reading, but a sensor not quite in the right place, very often a loose girth causes lose of contact and the BPM being registered will be irrationally high. I’ve had very tired horses too, but that was usually indicated by a delayed drop in HR between 74 and 60 BPM, not a sudden jump out on the trail. Just something to think about.





I did my first 50s this past summer. The first was a 50 CTR. My goal was simply to finish. About 2 miles from the finish, my horse's heart rate jumped to 200 and took a few seconds to come back down.
