I know I'm 6-9 months away from when I really will start looking for my horse but I can't help but check out horses online and mark ads that interest me. Here are four videos of horses I have dog earred in case they are still on the market when I start horse shopping. The first one is a bit fishy, read below. The first two show the types of videos that pretty much annoy me when trying to judge whether I have an interest in the horse.
This one below just drives me crazy! Can't even watch the whole thing! Plus he has a stripe and the picture of the horse in the ad doesn't...has the same sock pattern though.....that's a little fishy!
This one at least has the horse at regular speed so I can see how fast his trot and canter are. The slow-mo is for artistic videos not a sales video, especially when showing a horse under saddle
I think this next video is pretty good. The camera quality could be improved to get a better image but you can see the horse at all gaits, both ways and he fills most of the frame. Isn't he to die for gorgeous! Morgans are one the breeds I would certainly consider!
Promising young mare...
What are your thoughts on sales videos? What do you like to see? What do you not like to see? Does it matter the purpose of the horse as to what type of video you'd like to see? Under saddle? At liberty?
