Wouldn’t it be a great idea to be jumped over by a horse?
We jumped on the idea to make the video and contacted close friends, but with timing a communication break down we needed something on a more professional level.
After numerous messages and phone calls we finally arranged a film shoot with the help from our friend Kayde with a pro rider through Tredstep Ireland.
The experience is a little startling as a horse is coming right at you. You can’t move, yet you know something interesting is about to happen. It’s very different and has never been seen before.
Our camera was hit on one occasion with only minor damage, but without risking a lot of GoPros this video would never have been produced.
——Technical Information —-
