using camera with tripod to tape lessons

I highly recommend this! You an see so much more what your are being til to do an understand what your instructor says by getting video, I do it anyone I can even if it's not a lesson I have a friend video through my phone if possible.
Good luck!!

I HIGHLY recommend it! You can really look at the videos, tell yourself to look at it like a diff. Person, and really see where you are having problems. Also, you may be able to hear your instructor in the background. This serves importance for two reasons - 1, You get to hear it again, help it stick. 2, You can really look at yourself, hear her say that, and say, "Yea, I get that. I will definitely make that change."

I almost always always always video my lessons!

I always record everything if I have the chance. It's hard to believe some of the things that video shows. I like to tape my own work and then compare it to DVDs of good horsemen. If you want to get good it's an invaluable tool!

I do this all the time, then edit the videos and put them on YouTube to have friends review. Sometimes they catch things my instructor didn't, or they have some pointers that I've never been told. It's extremely helpful to video tape yourself for review, or just to see how you're progressing over time.

What I use is a cheap waterproof video camera with a flexible tripod. The tripod actually wraps around the fencing for the arena and I have it mounted in the corner pointing towards the center for maximum coverage. Don't use a fancy camera, the dust will kill it pretty quickly... you can buy a cheap Kodak or FlipHD pocket camera for under $80 plus tripod. It's pretty good quality and very rugged, so I don't worry about it ever getting damaged.

This is the camera I use:

This is the flexible tripod I use:


The camera films in HD (1080p with 60fps) and with a 16GB memory card I can record myself for hours.

It's definitely helpful. I would most certainly recommend it!
