Armchair pole bending

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of helmet cams. Since it’s a safe bet that I will never ride the Rolex cross-country course or race a Thoroughbred, getting a rider’s-eye view of those experiences is a fair replacement.

Most of the helmet cam videos I’ve seen are from eventing or show jumping riders, but naturally, western riders haven’t ignored this trend. Check out the pole bending video below.

Pretty cool.

It’s not a horse video, but it popped up in the “related videos” and I had to share. See what it’s like to ride a rodeo bull. Watching this video is about as close as I ever want to get to that experience.
