Jockey Cam!

Well, we've seen lots of the cross-country helmet cams over the past year or so. But, why not take a driver's-seat view of a slightly different type of running and jumping? Here is a video of my friend, Jamey Price, riding his horse It's A G Man in the Open Hurdle race at the Orange County (VA) P2P a few weeks ago. I know that it's hard to get the full effect of what it's like to gallop a steeplechaser up to and over those fences, but it's an exhilarating peek into what a jockey experiences in those short few moments during a race. Jamey and G Man make it look easy and they have a great time while they're at it, too!
