    Default GVRDC Training Helmet cam

    We had a silly stop at the second to last fence. She really doesn't like that front field, didn't like the hard ground in general either. I was very happy as she has only seen one other ditch/brush , and a much smaller trakehner - but she did not have a problem with either of them (#4 and #15)! We ended up placing 5th

    I also have stadium helmet cam - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FIZGc6uRxic

    She hates those flags in the corner around #3 - we often have a problem in that corner!

    a couple of pics from stadium too -

    You guys looked fantastic! That coop, ditch, coop combo caught a lot of people from what I gathered over the radios. Congrats on a clean stadium round, too! Fingers crossed, the Goobs and I may attempt that course next year!

    But even better, I've made a cameo appearance in an EventingJ helmet cam That's me sitting in the line of fire for the first bank out of the hedgerow! It was the hardest part of jump judging all day, figuring out where the heck to sit so I could 1.) see both jumps of the combo and 2.) sit in an area that would not spook the horses. I had a choice of hiding in a dry creek bed in the woods, praying the horses would not notice me sitting there or risking the slight possibility of getting run over where I ended up!

    Great video,thanks. I had a stop at a similar fence called the "fiesta" fence, with broad horizontal stripes like that. Wasn't much of a fiesta for me! Great recovery though, and on thru the coffin. Well done.

    Great run, thanks for posting. I love helmet cams and getting a look at where other people are riding. The still shots are super, you look fab and your horse is adorable. A real team.
