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.

You're Welcome. :)

I not only find other disciplines fascinating but I think we can all learn from each other if our minds are open. I think a clear sign of a truly intelligent person is one who is always willing to learn something new.

One might never actually wish to compete in eventing, harness racing, barrel racing, or dressage but having a little bit of an understanding of what it entails certainly never hurt anyone. It might open our minds to the possibilities with our own horses.

There are always those that will discourage people from doing things because their horse can't get to the top of the discipline in competition but it doesn't mean they can't do a little of it. Who doesn't love a gallop on the trail or the connection with their horse? Might not be grand Prix dressage jumping but it is still fun to pop over a log on a trail or to teach your horse to be supple in the arena even though you don't intend to win in the dressage ring.

I know myself, I missed a few opportunities by not thinking outside the box. I hear all too often of the young folks that think they already know all there is to know or how they think THEIR discipline is all there is to horses. How much they miss.

Walking the course


Barrel racing

One more

The world of helmet cams has truly opened up so many new ways of learning and experiencing things you might never get to experience.

I love the cross country cams for the higher level eventing. I know the chances of me ever going out and riding a 3 star course are slim to non. So I can experience it through someones helmet haha.

But never say never. One never knows the opportunities that will present themselves. Sure would be fun to give it a try, wouldn't it? Old age is making me crazy. Ha ha

I know an 83 year old woman that just went sky diving for the first time so... who knows. :)
