Tips on Video Quality
Please review your video before submission. Check that the horse/rider are clearly visible throughout the test. Do NOT video dark coloured horses against dark backgrounds, or pale horses against light backgrounds. If using an outdoor arena, try to record while the sun is high in the sky, and NOT in front of the camera. Our judges try their best to give accurate feedback but this can be very difficult with poor quality video recordings. We appreciate that not everyone has the ideal setup for making top quality videos but the better the video the more helpful the feedback will be.
