A new innovation comes to the Clifton Eventers web site today with the first posting of video shot from the rider’s helmet.
Using a small ruggedised high-definition sports camera we are able to deliver a stunning perspective of a cross-country round.
Used today for the first time at Woodhill Sands’ Fiber Fresh Feeds Advanced Horse Trial, Jonathan ‘Jock’ Paget gave Clifton Pinot a steady clear round in preparation for the National One Day Eventing Championships, to be held as part of Richfields International Horse Trial, 26-28 November. The pair finished fourth overall.
We plan to use the camera at many future horse trials, including the show jumping phase, some possibly including a rider’s narration to the footage.
You can see the video below or right click to open on YouTube itself. The video is available in a variety of formats, including 720p hi-def.
