The helmet cam still doesn't do it justice lol. I LOVE harness racing. I work at the track. The trainer I work for has me jog and train his horses with him. It is such a rush. I was working towards my qualifier license but I don't know how I would handle an actual race with horses all around me lol. Its one thing with 3 or 4 horses when you are training but 8 - 10 in an actual race I suspect would have me freaking right out lol.
I love the whole helmet cam thing. I really want to try it next year when I am out cross country...
Agreed! I too have driven the sulkies but... not raced. At least, not officially raced. Ha ha A few horses is one thing but so much in a pack is not my thing. This was back in the day when I had rock hard abs, not I would flip off the back or be hanging on the horses mouth, which I won't do. It was indeed a rush. Galloping horses like that on a track is a rush as well and it would be great if everyone could experience it once. Then again, once is never enough.
Still the helmet cams give an idea of what others see in said disciplines when they have no experience. Better then just seeing it on Tv. Even the helmet cams make it seem slow, in comparison to how it feels in the bike or on the back.
