Much of the performance outcome in equestrian sport relies on the harmony in effort between horse and rider. This study considers one aspect of this harmony in relation to the sport of dressage by investigating the physiological indicator of heart rate. Heart rate is a conventional measure of physical exertion of both equine and human athletes. However, previous research in the equestrian sport area has focused typically on either the human
member or the equine member as individuals.
