- glad the staples are out, looks like it's healing well. Stan
- I will try to take some pics and post them so you can see what they look like. I'm sure it'll still be wide angle, since the lens is fixed. I'm very happy with the Hero2 - HD video quality is even better, and it's easier to use too. CW
- Good luck finding a lesson barn, I think that's a great path.
Glad so many of you seem to be able to ride early despite the heat! I had a good ride on Trooper yesterday, went exploring the trails further than I'd been before, and as usual he was perfectly behaved. I went again today and did some more exploring, unfortunately on the later part of the ride he got what seems to be a stone bruise or abscess in his right hind foot, so the poor guy is lame. I feel bad, but the barn owner says it's a fact of life on the rocky trails we have - I gave him a nice cool hose down, a big bag of carrots and we put the foot in epsom salts. He was nickering to me when I went to get more carrots, so I guess the pain can't be that bad... Hopefully he heals well/soon - the barn owner has lots of experience caring for such things, so I think he's in good hands.
In the mean time, I spent some time editing the footage from my vacation last week and here's what I came up with. I wore the new camera on my two rides this weekend, so I hope to have some of that to share sometime soon too. Adventure Horse Riding NYS - YouTube
