There was not much room in the budget for a GoPro, so I settled for a knock-off I found on amazon. It was a third of the price, had pretty good reviews, came with it's own water-proof casing, remote control and GoPro compatible mounts so I figured why not! I'll be writing a review on it once I've had a chance to use it a few more times.
I headed out to a local trail with a fellow barn-mate (who had a trailer), and I was so excited to capture some neat video. Unfortunately I made the rookie mistake of not hitting the record button ..gah!
The only thing the helmet cam captured was a picture I took after the ride, sigh.
After that we decided the horses were getting a little too excited so we took it at a walk the whole trail. Fine by me because I had to trot Max anyway to catch up. He's got such a hokey walk! The first few times I asked for trot he'd give a small buck but after he settled in it was quite pleasant.
Again I wish I had recorded the damn ride because we explored a new trail which had our horses half jump over a rocky ledge and climb up and down a super steep hill. But ahwell..what can you do..at least the memories are there!
Happy ride deserves happy grazing!
Today though I made SURE I hit record so at least I got some neat video of an arena ride, and a walk through the home-trails.
He's been such an angel under saddle lately. On the aids, forward, willing. It's been a pleasurable ride each time. Looks like spring is blowing away the winter blues for the both of us!
