Video hints and tips

You will need a friend or parent to film your test for you. Ask them to follow these instructions to ensure your test can be judged online.

Filming position

  • Film from behind the judge's position at the C marker, outside the arena
  • If it's a sunny day, try to ensure the sun is behind the camera
  • If you can, mount the device on a tripod to keep it steady


  • If filming on a smartphone, hold the device in the landscape orientation
  • Start filming a short time before the rider enters at A, e.g. as the rider passes the E or B marker
  • Keep the horse and rider in the centre of the frame
  • Sound must be recorded.


  • Avoid excessive zooming in and out - the judge will need to see the part of the arena the competitor is in and the whole horse and rider clearly
  • Some zooming is necessary when the horse and rider are at the far end of the arena


  • The horse and rider should fill about half of the vertical space in the frame whenever possible.

Video formats

  • We can accept the following file formats: MOV, MOD, AVI, MP4, M4V, WMV

Option 1: Uploading your video directly

  • Go to our show website
  • Find your class and your entry under your class heading. Select the Edit button for your entry and then the Upload from the menu.
  • Follow the instructions on-screen
  • The video may take some time depending on your broadband speed and size of the file

Reducing your video file size

  • If your video exceeds the file size allowed you will need to compress it
  • You can do this using video editing software such as Windows Movie Maker (on a PC) or iMovie (on Mac)

Option 2: Upload your video to YouTube first then paste a link

  • Upload your video to your YouTube account and ensure it plays back in full
  • Make sure you set your video settings to unlisted or public
  • Go to show website; find and select your entry (as above for option 1) but select the Link option from the menu.
  • Copy the link to your YouTube video and paste it into the insert link box
