I don't know what they call it over in Canada? Biscuit is what we call each slice of hay?

Golden,

I had my full attention on my mare. Camera was attached to the side of my head. Hands free.

She had her ears back but dont know why, but she did lick and chew almost immediately backing her up (which is a very good sign). Im probably over thinking it as to why she put her ears back (i wouldnt say she nessecarily pinned them) but im jist curious thats all.

Maybe the gadget on your head she was concerned about.

Also, you may have had your hands free. But the video looks as if you were worried about keeping the camera on her, therefore your mind wasn't really on her.

Question. Does she always move around like that when being groomed? Or was that due to the distraction of the camera on your head?

This is TOO bizarre....I click on the video(it is just the blank , green square on my ipad), and it starts to play hoofpic's voice, but no picture. Then, the picture(of Fly's croup) which I assume is the end, flashes on the screen, and I THINK I am going to get to actually watch the video........no.
instead, a Vietnamese guy is showing what looks like a restaurant ad., or cooking show....and it is 30 some minutes long, but NO Hoofpic video!!,
I cannot get it to come up on the YouTube channel, either..

Stop trying to film. Just focus on your mare.

My instructor before we start really work makes me do laps with my TB just walking and seeing how we both feel and also trying to listen to where his hooves are landing.

She tells me to stop thinking about what's going on outside and just be with my horse.

Well if that is you working two handed, I would stop worrying about ears and licking and chewing, just make her stand still when you are grooming her. Either tie her up, or learn to make her stand....basic stuff. I don't care if they are happy respectful, peed off, if I am grooming they had best stand still.

I see a horse with a coat in very good condition. She is acting/behaving very normally, like a horse.

I just got a flashlight that goes on my head. All the horses are all very concerned about the thing on my head, whether it is on or off.

It may be more beneficial for the horse to wear the camera and film you. hahaha

Otherwise I don't much care for videos taken without seeing both parties of the team. Riding or groundwork.

Currying technique could be improved, to go over all the horse, not just some of her, in circular with the hair growth motion, vigorous but not too heavy especially to start with each area-then increasing to pull up dirt from skin to surface.

The brush used with sponge in center is intended for bathing.

A dandy brush is needed to flick away the dirt that was raised from currying. I prefer a natural bristle brush, not nylon or poly or synthetic. Also I like 2 or 3 brushes, if I have the time will use all three.

First a short bristled stiff mud brush (sometimes use before the curry for caked on dried mud),
then a long bristled medium dandy brush (to get the dust off in a flicking of the wrist motion),
then a fine bristled finishing brush, optional (to smooth out the brush marks on the coat).

Well the last time I groomed her like that without tying her to anything was in the barn arena and side from taking a step here and there she was very good in staying still. I think it was 2 things, first possibly the camera on my head and two, she was just outside her herd so she was distracted. The only reason I didnt bring her inside to groom her was cause there was quite a few icy patches along the way to the barn and hasnt been salted yet by the BO. Hoping that clears up today cause I dont know if its worth the risk leading your horse over icy patches. Not just for her sake but mine. What if I was to fall.

Ok ill just focus on my mare. I didnt think (if it was a distraction at all for her) the camera on my head wouldnt be a distraction at all.
