Unhappy How to get a video of yourself riding?

My instructor is hopeless when it comes to phones/cameras.
She starts out good but slowly progresses to point the camera at the ground while she watches.

I really want to get a video of me riding for a critique

Anyone have an idea on how I could get this? I only have a phone, but there's tons of things for me to put it on

I would put it in the center so it's a better view, but then there would be 10 seconds of nothing, and then 4 seconds of my passing the camera.

(I would edit it but it crashes my phone, it's taken a few spills..)

Thanks guys!!

Do you have a friend that could video you......I take pics/video all the time when we are out trail riding of us!

I would never expect my coach to film me during a lesson - I'm paying her to teach me, not film me!
Get a friend or relative to come along and film for you one day.
The only time my coach has filmed, was when my horse started developing passage steps in the trot work and she wanted me to have a visual of what to aim for with him.

Fence posts are my best friend, or my Tri-Pod! I set it up in the corner so it gets most of me and I try to stay in the focus of the camera.

I'm going to have fun experimenting tomorrow!! Haha

It's hard to have friends/family come up
Friends don't like it, and my mom is working a lot and doesn't have time.

The corner idea is a good one

I use a thing called a 'gorilla pod' which is like a tripod but you can twist is around fence posts. I then attach my camcorder to it and put it on a corner post in the arena ... it works well. I'm sure you can buy them on amazon and their must be something similar out there for phones. I'd google camera/tripod/accessories. Will have a look and see if I can find anything similar for phones.
