What does a heart rate monitor have to do with music?

First step in successful reports is the ability to explain things well, and I'm sorry but I don't really understand what it is you are asking for?

I also am not sure where or what

is??

If you are talking about the country you live in I am extremely sad that you can neither spell it correctly or give it the respect is deserves by starting it with a capital letter.

If it is some other description that I don't understand, then as you were

This is how you measure the pulse yourself (scroll to the mid of the page) http://www.equusite.com/articles/hea...talSigns.shtml So you start measuring yourself with no music, then turn the music on (or ask someone to do it) and keep measuring to see how it changes (if at all, personally I doubt it will).

Well, with people, I've seen studies that show that joggers cover about 15% more ground with the same perceived effort when listening to music than without. And I'd rate jogging without tunes right up there with a kick in the nuts, so I tend to believe those studies.

Would a horse? Hmmmm...maybe if you tried GarryOwen?

Garry Owen from 'They Died With Their Boots On' - YouTube

BTW - terrible movie if you are serious about history. Not bad if you just want to see Errol Flynn being Errol Flynn pretending to be Custer...

More errors riddle this biopic of General Custer than bullets flew at the Battle of Little Bighorn, sniffs Alex von Tunzelmann

My real guess is, given how emotional horses are, that music could influence them if only by influencing their rider.

Well that much is true, I sing to my horses if we get to a scary thing, helps me breathe and relax, so helps them to relax.

Or maybe they are just smart enough to know that calming down stops the horrible noise that I'm making!

I tried ipod while working my horses. It was quite bad I have to say: I couldn't focus at all and horses felt that. So one time was enough. However I think it's a good thing to use on trails (I do when I ride my qh).

GoldenHorse, I think you were a bit harsh. It was a simple typo, a instead of e, not like she doen't know how tospell it. Future Farmers of America is an agricultural organization.
