Mountain Trail video, from the rider's perspective
Some of you may have heard about the Mountain Trail competitions that occur at the Oregon Horse Center, where the facility owner essentially replicates outdoor trail obstacles inside. Most of classes are scored on how the obstacles are negotiated by the equines and riders. At the championships, there is one class that is both times and judged, where the course is done at speed. My friend, Ali, had a Go Cam on her helmet for her run on her mom's good mare, Sweets. They won the class, and the very cool video can be seen here:
You may notice the fuzzy ears on the horse. It's something she and her mom do for the pairs class (there are pink feather boas that go with the ears) and just something fun for the less serious classes.
