Even though I watched the video on my phone in low resolution, it was fun!
I loved the large fast circles, you really get a feel for how fast they were going....it made me giggle.

That picture puts some perspective on where that camera was sitting and where he is looking during his ride, there was no looking down at his horse, that's for sure. (and shouldn't be at that level)

When you first spin on one, albeit slow.....you can get very dizzy! And when you get on a good one and go fast....it's so fast you don't even have time to get dizzy!

I forget how many times I was told 'don't look at the back of his head!'

I loved it. It shows him looking where is going and where he is going to go. There was not even a glance downward. I was also very impressed that there was no hesitation or 'bump' in the stride at the lead changes or the roll-backs. It shows the extreme concentration that it takes to play at that level.
