    Default Helmet cam of Hunter derby ride or top hunter round?

    I'd love see a top round from the helmet cam perspective. I watch a lot of jumper and eventer helmet cam rounds and I feel like it would be hugely educational to see a hunter round version. I'd love to "feel" the rhythms and last few steps to take off especially. Anyone have a link to one?

    ^I was just about to post that I was there for that Derby, and one of our girls placed in it!

    oh fun videos, thanks for the links! Was browsing on my phone (faster internet) and had to open up my laptop to get an even better view of the rides.
    Love helmet cams!!

    Thanks refresh, that's exactly what I was hoping for. Such a great illustration of the different spots a hunter looks for than a jumper or eventer.

    I heard that Hope Glynn was disqualified for riding with a helmet cam in that hunter derby. Anyone know more about it?!

    I don't know anything about that instance, but I was going to ask what are the rules on it? Does that fall under HU126-2 in the rulebook?

    At the shows here in June a rider showed in the low adult jumpers with a helmet cam & I know the steward was going to look into it. Never heard what her findings were & I didn't see rider rest of show.

    Turns out, she was disqualified. But it wasn't because of the helmet cam; it was the helmet itself. You can read her response here (at the end of the comments):
