I have a question for all you more experienced people -

Recently someone I know who was a vet secretary at a well-known 100 mile
endurance ride told me that they had horses with heart rates as low as 17
bpm - ??? Is this possible? Just wondering, because it seems awfully low to
me, but I haven't spend much time around 100 mile horses.
