Your video should be available within ten (10) working days of order, but usually much faster. You will be notified via email of your successful purchase and when the video is available online (please keep an eye on your Junk mail folder as automated emails are often stopped as Spam)
Do you capture every fence on course?
Unfortunately, for a number of reasons, it is impossible to guarantee that we can video every rider over every jump.
Weather conditions (in particular the wind that can blow tripods over and rain that causes the lens to fog over and the sun can also create over-exposure, make the footage unclear)
Cameras occasionally knocked over by horses and spectators
Limited time during course changes mean that sometimes our cameras are not re-focused in time for the first rider on a new course
People standing in front of cameras obscuring the view
- Camera or battery failure
Jump options - often there are options at fences which we may usually do not cover
And of course, simple human error
We are continually improving our processes to ensure that we capture as much footage as we possibly can but with 18 - 30 cameras, often running for over 12 hours, there are plenty of opportunities for things to go wrong. Despite this, although we cannot guarantee 100% coverage for every rider, we aim to come close to it.
How do I just watch videos?
Simply type a rider, horse or event name into our Search Box and it will provide you with all options.
How do I download my video?
